Alternative Giants BLUE OCTOBER Release Video for “Daylight”

“[I Hope You’re Happy] harkens back to the 1980s heyday of The Cure, an immediately catchy melody with a touch of new-wave-era sonic wash” – Austin American Statesman

“I Hope You’re Happy simply feels like healing. Even the darkest songs on the album feel a bit therapeutic and come out the other end brighter and better” – The Prelude Press

“… a 50-minute piece of alternative rock greatness.” – The Aquarian
