Otep Ink Deal
The Ascension is their third full-length album, and the band challenged itself to avoid clichés and classifications and find a new landscape of sound and vision. "We said 'genre limits and music fads be damned, let's write music that is important to us and that motivates us," explains Otep Shamaya, the band's namesake and driving force. "I wanted to write songs we believe in and let nothing stop us from building the album we want to make."
Look for the band to tour soon in support of The Ascension with band members Brian, Aaron and eVil J. The band just completed a National tour with Static-X this past summer and is set to begin touring in support of the album in the very near future.
