The Octopus Project Are Far Less Terrifying Than You Might Think, Are Touring

Assumption: The Octopus Project are thusly named because there are four normally limbed members, adding up to a total of eight arms.

Fact: There exists a two-part film, scored entirely by The Octopus Project, wherein a man is actually and accidentally attacked by a shark.

Assumption: The Octopus Project are releasing their new album, Avalanche October 9 through Graveface Records at least in part to atone for any slight involvement they had in the shark attack. Because they are nice.

Fact: The joke about a real life Octopus that is able to play music isn’t very good.

Assumption: The Octopus Project throw wonderful parties, inviting Black Moth Super Rainbow (with whom they collaborated on last year’s The House of Apples and Eyeballs) and Stereo Total (with whom they are touring much of eastern North America this fall.)

Fact: The Octopus Project should not be confused with The Arcturus Project in spite of the fact that they are both awesome and occasionally even sound similar.

Assumption: These will be fun events:

* Stereo Total
