- The sonic recipe: one part grunge emotionalism, one part moody soundscapes, two parts shimmering melodies, and three parts wounded-heart vocals
- The end result:: a platinum-selling Texas quintet that would fit perfectly on the soundtrack to a Twilight film.
- Coincidentally: Blue October super-fan Stephanie Meyer says their songs had a huge influence on her writing
- What was probably on loop while she wrote: “Hate Me,” the 2006 power ballad whose title backfired and made millions love the band instead
- What came afterwards: Sway, the chart-busting 2013 album that found Blue October developing a newfound sense of optimism while never losing their edge
- What’s next: at the dawn of 2016, Blue October plans on dropping its eighth studio album, which tentatively features the tracks “Naked” and “Don’t Leave”
- What else is next: September brings a brand-new live album that harnesses the palpable angst of their stage show, and early 2016 also brings a documentary about the band
