Austin’s favorite experimental pop band The Octopus Project is set to return with their fifth studio full-length, Fever Forms. The single Sharpteeth, a limited-edition 7-inch pressed on florescent pink vinyl, drops two weeks before the album’s. But proceed with caution: As tempting as it may be to keep “Sharpteeth” on repeat, the soaring guitorchestra and haunting Theremin lead has been known to reduce some listeners to puddles of tears about the 250th consecutive listen. The single also features two exclusive non-album B-sides.The Octopus Project has released joyous party music since 2002, all the while touring the world both on their own and as handpicked support for artists as diverse as Aesop Rock, DEVO, Explosions in the Sky and Trail of Dead. They’ve earned a reputation for exceptional experiences through elaborate multimedia experiments, lavish album packaging, and the intensity of their extremely fun, extremely loud live shows. The band plans to hit the road again in July and August in support of Fever Forms. Tour dates coming soon!
