About the event
Octopus Montage, formed by brother and sister Dec and Davina Naylor,UK based 5 piece Octopus Montage fuse energetic Pop-Punk anthems with intense Metalcore to bring a whole new meaning to Easycore.
The band emerged in late 2017 releasing a cover of Simple Plan’s ‘What’s New Scooby Doo?’ as a halloween joke of which has gone on to earn them over 13 million Spotify streams on the song alone. This prompted the band to release their first feature length effort in 2019 in the shape of ‘Reborn (...Again),’ an 8 track EP.
Following a line up change that saw Alex Jennings take over screaming duties and Cain Dylan take over the reigns behind the drum kit, the band toured regionally throughout the rest of the year playing alongside the likes of ROAM, Crazy Town, Mallory Knox, SHVPES and InVisions before releasing the ‘Catharsis’ EP in late 2019 comprising of their summer single ‘Now I’m Gone’, a Pop-Goes-Punk cover of Post Malone’s ‘Goodbyes’ and a handful of their old songs reworked with the new band members.
In the remaining months of 2019 and early 2020 the band began writing and recording their debut album ‘How To Live & How To Lose’ (Released 02/04/21) with a focus on highly confessional lyrics, bouncy Pop-Punk rhythms and breathtaking Deathcore-esque breakdowns. The band were subsequently featured on the cover of the ‘New Metal Tracks’ Editorial Playlist and received critical acclaim from the likes of AltPress, Loudwire’s Weekly Wire and Knotfest amongst countless other publications.
