The Houston, Texas-based alt-rock band — fronted by Justin Furstenfeld — is best known in town for the recent Modern Rock hit “Hate Me” from the album Approaching Normal (Universal Motown). Furstenfeld and his bandmates headline the Pick Up the Phone Tour 2009, a project featuring bands who want to “stand up for suicide prevention and awareness.” All involved are committed to reducing the stigma associated with the mental health issue. The band is teaming up with the national hopeline network 1-800-Suicide for the month-long trek, which launches Thursday at the Music Farm. Furstenfeld himself struggled with mental health problems only a few years ago. “It has taken 20 years to have the chance to do a tour focusing on mental health issues which have been a daily battle for me for most of my life,” he explains. “It’s great to finally be a part of a positive, progressive-thinking tour for an important cause which will make a direct impact and help people in desperate situations that need it the most.” Hailing from Atlanta, opening act B.o.B. (a.k.a. Bobby Ray) is a hip-hop artist and producer on Atlantic Records. Visit putp.org, bobatl.com, and blueoctoberfan.com for more.
