The Octopus Project has been releasing joyous party music since 2002, all the while touring the world on their own, as handpicked support for artists as diverse as Aesop Rock, DEVO, and Explosions in the Sky, and playing festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and All Tomorrow's Parties. They've earned a reputation for elaborate multimedia experiments and extremely fun, extremely loud live shows.

The band has released five full-length albums -- 2013's Fever Forms being the latest. Also active as composers for video games and film, they were awarded the Special Jury Award for Musical Score at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for their work on the film KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER. They are currently working on a new record, which will be released in 2016.
