Austin based quintet The Octopus Project has announced a West Coast tour including dates with iconic new wave group, Devo, and surf rock outfit Man...or Astro-man? In October, The Octopus Project was honored to join the line-up at Moogfest 2010 with MGMT, Massive Attack, Hot Chip and headliner Devo. When Devo's guitarist suffered a hand injury and couldn't perform, The Octopus Project was asked to fill in as Devo's backing band. They all got along so well, that when it came time to schedule their make-up tour, they asked the band to join them. Perhaps a result of a shared obsession for vintage electronics, the band will be supporting Devo on their rescheduled tour dates.

The Octopus Project plans to hit the East Coast in April (dates to be announced) in their continued road support of their fourth full length album, Hexadecagon
, released in 2010 on Peek-A-Boo Records
. After the band's extensive tour, they will return to the studio to work on a new LP!
