Caravels / Octaves // Split LP, UK & EU tour in 2015

In the summer of 2010, Caravels and Octaves met for the first time. The world is a better place because of it (I think). We've released records for both bands previously, but this one's special. These two bands mean heaps to us — not just for their music, but also for the friendships we've forged with them over the years. Some of my fondest memories involve various levels of debauchery with these people, we all have the same stupid tattoo and I've long since lost track of how many times I've shotgunned a beer in a hotel bathtub with them.

To celebrate their friendship, both bands will be contributing two songs toward a split that we'll be co-releasing with Bridge Nine Records on January 20, 2015 on vinyl and digitally. To coincide with the album's release, both bands will be touring the UK & EU — dates and info below:
