  • Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor explained the song title to Kerrang!: "The main riff reminded us of an octopus because you need about eight tentacles to play it - so that's why the song is about an octopus."
  • Vocalist and bassist Troy Sanders told Kerrang!: "There's a line in the chorus that goes, 'I'm on my way back home.' That's important to this band because it's what we always say when we get towards the end of a tour. It's always an important moment."
