The Octopus Project launches tour supporting new Golden Beds EP

The Octopus Project - Golden Beds EPThe Octopus Project is hitting road once again to promote a brand new release due in stores next week. The band has kept busy over the past month by touring around the south, playing at the Austin Fashion Awards last week and rounding out an incredible 4th of July show at Stubb's with Explosions In the Sky and The Wooden Birds. The band sets out once again today on an extended North American tour behind the forthcoming Golden Beds enhanced CD EP, which features five songs and seven videos (over 40 minutes of sights and sounds!).

Musically, some tracks are new, some are fresh takes on ideas from the past and each explores a different facet of their omnivorous sonic creations — from big-riff rock to tiny electronics to blissful sing-alongs. You can stream the entire EP here, so roll up those shirt sleeves and get ready to dip your arms deep into this kaleidoscopic candy jar full of tasty Octopus-flavored treats of both the audio and visual variety.

Also slated for release are vinyl reissues of the first two albums, Identification Parade and One Ten Hundred Thousand Million, due in stores in early September and available for pre-order now from the Peek-A-Boo Records website.
