Blue October's front man, Justin Furstenfeld, recently stopped by the KISS studio to talk and play a song for us.

We covered all the important topics, his difficult past, his incredible resurgence, and his future plans. Justin was also gracious enough to play an incredible acoustic version of Hate Me. If you love Justin's raw emotional lyrics to this song, then you must hear it raw with only a guitar. It's a must for all Blue October fans.

Blue October live tonight at Tricky Falls. Tickets still available at the box office!

Check out their newest video, SWAY.
