After Jason Begin relocated to New Mexico, his Octagrape bandmates Glen Galloway (Soul-Junk, Trumans Water, Error Massage) and Tyler Ward (Exfriends, Kabbs, Oh, Spirit!) founded post-punk garage rockers Sumatraban in 2016, soon joined by guitarist/keyboardist Preston Swirnoff (Freedom for Saturn). A 7-inch was released in September 2016 featuring their cover of a 1979 song by Edinburgh band the Visitors called "Electric Heat" b/w "Mutate," an original group composition.
Their debut full-length was recorded with Ben Moore at Galloway's own Singing Serpent Studios.
