Blue October and Universal Motown Records Choose 5am Studios for New Album Pre-Production

In the midst of their worldwide tour supporting their Platinum selling album Foiled, Universal Motown Records recording artists Blue October and lead singer Justin Furstenfeld have been busy writing a musical cornucopia of new material. Taking a short break from their touring the band and label chose 5am Studios in Austin, TX for their pre-production of much of the new material for their next full length album release. 

These are by far some of the most talented, creative, and professional artists we have had the pleasure of working with at 5am Studios. Justin has a virtual symphony in his head and hands as he conducted himself and the band through an amazing repertoire of songs that he needed to “get out of his head” and onto tape so to speak at 5am Studios this past month. 

The band loved the convenient location and laid back atmosphere of 5am Studios, along with our large and ambient live room, especially when recording drum tracks and acoustical instruments. “These are the best drum sounds I’ve heard!” exclaimed Justin Furstenfeld upon hearing playback of the initial drums recorded in our live room, “This is the best sounding live room I’ve come across, and I’ve recorded in New York, LA, and all those places.” 

We had alot of fun with Justin and the other members of Blue October, including road manager Travis Hatem who put in alot of time at the 5am Studios mix desk, along with recording and performing band members: violinist Ryan Delahoussaye, guitarist C.B. Hudson, bassist Matt Noveskey, and drummer Jeremy Furstenfeld. 

We can’t wait to have Blue October back with us again at 5am Studios and look forward to seeing them on tour this summer as well as hearing their completed new album due sometime next year in 2008! Full information on the band can be found at The Blue October Website.
