Blue October’s Justin Furstenfeld, has been hospitalized and is being treated for suffering an extreme mental anxiety attack. The band’s current tour has been cancelled. “Mental health diseases are unpredictable,” Furstenfeld said in a prepared statement. “And on the eve of this tour in support of a cause that means the world to me, I am in need of time to heal from a setback in my own personal life, which is severe enough for me to seek hospitalization. I hope that my action to seek the strength and safety of treatment will inspire others that are suffering to do the same.” The tour, which was to feature opening act B.o.B. (also known as Bobby Ray), had been scheduled to kick off last night in Charleston, SC, and had been scheduled to visit clubs in 18 US cities. Blue October was touring in support of their fifth studio album Approaching Normal which was released in March and featured the hit songs “Dirt Room” and “Say It”
