BLUE OCTOBER Celebrate Indie Label Chart Success, Announce 2019 Tour Dates

“[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

“‘Daylight’ builds atop gentle, haunting piano and guitar before exploding. Then Justin Furstenfeld’s layered vocals and an almost industrial vibe in the chorus add to the song’s power” – Alt 92.9 Boston

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