Wrong Concerts just released a charity sampler featuring 25 bands, including our song False Flag. You can buy this compilation by donating 10 euros or more on Bandcamp. The money goes entirely to the victims of the earthquake in Turkey. Read more about this project on

New tourdates

After three shows in France last month, we’ll be in tour again in Germany and the Czech Republic in May (see agenda for details). And on April 22 we will do a show here in Amsterdam at De Nieuwe Anita with Saluting Rome.

New live video ‘Sparkle’

Last May we were touring through the Czech Republic and Germany. The last stop was Auerbach, where we did a live-in-the-studio session at Fuzzy Room Recordings. Thanks so much to Andreas Eckert for this very nice video of our new song Sparkle, featuring Bas Snabilie on the snare.

New video ‘False Flag’

We are proud to present our new video of the song ‘False Flag’ from the album Status Seeking.

Described by the filmmakers as “a fairytale where two people in the city and the underworld confront each other”. For this, 8ctopus has opted for a mixed technique of film, photography and animation.

Old Traditions – New EP

On December 10 we’ve released Old Traditions, a new EP featuring two songs about the holidays. Like Listen, the Snow Is Falling, the EP highlights the more introspective side of the band.

Available at our store and on Bandcamp.

On stage again

After fourteen months we’ll be playing before an audience again, starting at De Nieuwe Anita in our hometown Amsterdam. After that, we’ll also do shows in The Hague, Haarlem, Wormerveer and at the Christmas Stomp festival (see agenda for details).

We hope to see you there!

Status seeking – Out today!

Finally – our new record Status Seeking is released today! Available at our store, Bandcamp, Concerto in Amsterdam, and of course this weekend during our gigs at Cinetol and Humanity House.

It already got some enthousiastic reviews from Bluesbunny, MNPR Magzine, The Sleeping Shaman and others. Fluf, on the other hand, thought the record – despite the tasty looking vinyl – was “uneatable”.

Status seeking

Like we mentioned earlier, our new album Status Seeking will be released on September 4! Saskia screen-printed the sleeves herself and it will be available in a numbered edition of 350 copies. You can pre-order the LP right now at our store and on Bandcamp, where you can listen to False Flag, another new song.… Read more
