Octopus Montage Discusses Music All the Way!

Pop punk metalcore act OCTOPUS MONTAGE have been together for a few years now, working upon their first debut EP, re-doing it a handful of times until it reached perfection. Thus, moving forward crafting their style with a lot to come soon enough. See what the band had to discuss about their music.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Our band started in the summer of 2016 jamming in our garage for a laugh, doing some Blink-182 and Sex Pistols covers, we then had some riffs and lyric ideas which we took and ran with -But we’re glad you’ll never hear half of them. The core of the band have known each other for years and everything just fell into place in the right place at the right time. There have been a few changes in members and now we feel we have the perfect line up for us to make the progress we want it.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We once saw and octopus with Nine legs washed up on the local beach, we thought you know, that has one too many legs! It’s more of a montage of legs than anything else! It kinda just carried on from there....

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The sunny seaside town of Blackpool in the UK! Although the alternative scene has been fairly quiet historically, we are proud to be involved in the growth of the scene and it seems that the town is at the beginning of something big. Big up our boys Avarus!

4. How would you describe your style?

A mix of upbeat, catchy pop punk melodies, with metalcore riffs and emo lyrics sprinkled together so you can beat people up to summer jams or hug your friends to brutal breakdowns.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’re one EP in so far and we did a really popular cover of Simple's Plans ‘Whats New, Scooby Doo?’ Theme song! We are working really hard to expand our repertoire and have released our first single of the summer, ‘Now I’m Gone.’ There is plenty more that came from.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yeah! As previously mentioned our new single ‘Now I’m Gone’ was released at the beginning of June. On top of this, we have been working on a few pop-punk tunes along with some more metalcore bops of which we aim to release over summer.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We began our mini UK tour at the start of June playing at Hangtight Festival in Blackpool with InVisions, SHVPES and Mallory Knox. We have also been in North Scotland playing ForresFest with Seeds Of Sorrow, From Inside and multiple other really heavy guys. In regards to the rest of our dates, we are playing a mixture of headline shows and festivals along with a big show at the end of August supporting Crazy Town. All our dates can be found on our Facebook page.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We are focused on creating more and more music in the studio in between hitting the road and ripping it up around the country.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Just look for Octopus Montage on any Streaming site, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or just go to Octopusmontage.com! Pick up a shirt or a physical copy of our Debut EP!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Never take us too seriously, always dance along, be happy, share the tunes and never be afraid to come up and say hi to us! We are 4 kids just trying to live our dream.
