This alternative rock band from Texas came together in the late '90s. Formed by vocalist/guitarist Justin Furstenfeld with his brother (and drummer) Jeremy, the current lineup includes Matt Noveskey on bass lead guitarist, CB Hudson (who replaced original guitarist Brant Coulter) and violinist Ryan Delahoussaye. A multi-instrumentalist, Delahoussaye also plays viola, mandolin and keyboards and was one of Blue October's original members along with the brothers Furstenfeld. Two years after releasing a well-regarded debut, The Answers, in their hometown of Houston without any label support or management, Blue October were signed to Universal Records. But that relationship was short-lived. After unleashing 2000's Consent to Treatment they were dropped -- only to be re-signed by the label a few years later, following the enormous success of their single "Calling You," which was also featured on the American Weddingsoundtrack. On their strength of their live shows and enthusiastic audiences, Dallas independent label Brando came calling, putting out their live CD (with DVD), Argue With A Tree, followed by another studio effort, History for Sale.

Live in Cologne Germany
Runtime: 1 hr 29 minStaind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date, STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album.
The multi-platinum Massachusetts hard rock outfit Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and Johnny "Old School" April pushed itself to the very brink. There was struggle and strife, but, as a result, Staind constructed a collection of chaotically melodic songs that hearken back to their 1999 major label debut, Dysfunction, while wielding an instrumental and lyrical prowess that could only be cultivated by 16 years of writing, recording, and touring together.
This concert in Cologne Germany is one of just pure raw emotion and the performance is simply amazing. All the songs are sung with emotion drawn on lyrics taken from the lives of these exemplary band members.
