Octane is a Rock band that deifes all catergorization. Playing genres from Heavy Rock to the most intricate Rock Balad, they constantly entertain with their hook laden vocals, duel guitar melodies and dynamic rhythm section.

Biography

Octane was formed in the fall of 2000 when five Philly musicians abandoned their own steady gigs for a chance to become part of the breakthrough band that embodied all that was missing from music. A no-frills, no-nonsense rock ‘n roll band reminiscent of the metal acts of yesteryear, Octane was immediately embraced and continually supported by fans tired of hearing the same ripped off melodies and cookie-cutter guitar riffs that were beginning to define the scene.

“I think people miss the days of pure unadulterated rock,” said Brian Quinn.
“We give people what they want in a no-bullshit kind of way. We’re just out to rock ‘n roll and our fans appreciate that.”

Packing clubs up and down the East Coast, Octane not only attracted audiences with their visceral performances, but more importantly, kept them coming back with fan-favorites like I for One and Trace. Drawing between 2,000-3,000 people a weekend they’ve amassed a following unique to a market that typically shows little loyalty to an artist.

The band has been experiencing success on a new level, one that reaches beyond Philly and into the national market. Recently sharing the stage with such notable artists as Sevendust, Fuel, Disturbed, Chevelle, Taproot, Days of the New, Judas Priest, Kid Rock, Sinch, Mudvayne, 3 Doors Down, Slash’s Snakepit, Earshot, Nonpoint and more, Octane’ s music has touched thousands of people in the industry’s biggest markets.

“Octane is the best band I’ve seen play in the Philadelphia area since I’ve been with WYSP,” said Spike, on-air DJ and Music Director (94.1 WYSP, Philadelphia). “The band has a real presence and a distinct sound.”

A sound, that while only starting as a whisper tickling the ears of just a few, has now been amplified into a scream. A scream that refuses to be muffled and continues to ring in the ears of countless fans everywhere… shouting “Octane…Octane…Octane…”
