Justin Furstenfeld has been making music in some form or another for more than two decades, but he is best known as the frontman for platinum-selling rock band Blue October. The band’s big hit, “Hate Me,” still gets spun on rock radio nearly a decade later, but they’re far more than a one-hit wonder, as their new concert film Things We Do At Night (Live From Texas) proves: The 19-song set, filmed at the House Of Blues in Dallas, features a sold-out crowd going nuts for singles and deep cuts alike across the band’s past four albums. Today, we’re premiering the live performance clip for “Say It,” originally from Blue October’s 2009 album Approaching Normal. Furstenfeld comments:

“I love this song because it brings us back to our roots. It’s nice to rip into a song like this and find that perfect balance of edgy and lyrical empowerment.”

Blue October’s Things We Do At Night (Live From Texas) will be released November 20 via Up/Down Records and Brando Records, and it can be pre-ordered on Blu-ray and CD.
