Justin Furstenfeld - Songs From An Open Book

Great news for all the Blue October fans out there: frontman Justin Furstenfeld will release his first solo album "Songs From An Open Book" on September 2.

The album will feature songs as they were originally written, with only a Guild acoustic guitar and a single vocal track. Justin is promoting the album with a nationwide U.S. tour, as well as dates in Germany and England. The shows will consist of spoken word, a question-and-answer session, and an acoustic set of intimate versions of fan-favorite Blue October songs.
The evening will focus on breaking down the walls between artist and audience, and will provide fans with the most access to Justin ever available.

Many of the songs included in "Songs From An Open Book" have appeared on previous releases by Blue October and The Last Wish (the first band of Justin), however seven of the tracks are new or previously unreleased songs. The previously unreleased songs are "Can And Cannot Say", "A Funny Thing", "The Birthday Present", "The Apology", "The Sarah Story" and "Up There". "Consent To Treatment" is the name of Blue October's second album but the song itself is a new track.

In related news, Blue October will film their two shows at the House Of Blues in Dallas at the end of November for the band's first live DVD in over 10 years. Be there if you can.
