Since 1998’s The Answers, Blue October has been touring the world with a boundless approach, generating north of 1 billion total streams and charting 18 hits. In 2006, Foiled earned a platinum certification and yielded signature anthems “Hate Me” and “Into The Ocean,” kicking off a prolific streak. In addition to six consecutive Top 30 album debuts on the Billboard Top 200, they scored three straight #1 entries on the Top Alternative Albums Chart with Any Man in America (2011), Sway (2013), and Home (2016).

Speaking to their sustained influence, 2018’s I Hope You’re Happy has become one of Blue October’s seminal albums. The title song “I Hope You’re Happy” vaulted all the way to #14 on the Alternative Chart and is still one of their most popular streaming songs. 2020’s This Is What I Live For bowed in the Top 20 of the Top Rock Albums Chart and spawned a radio hit with “Oh My My,” garnering a Top 10 single at Alternative Rock Radio their first Top 10 since 2009 with over 10 million-plus streams.
