Otep will be holding nothing back this year on their upcoming North American tour
Otep Shamaya is known as many things: artist, activist, illustrator, poet, but most notably the front woman and band leader of Otep.
Her music means a great deal to her, which shows when the singer expressed that she is beyond excited to share the news of her band going on a North American tour this summer to promote their upcoming eighth studio album, saying:
“We are beyond excited to play some of the new songs on tour, to play Rock Fest in Wisconsin this summer, to scream and sing with our beloved fans and to remind everyone that no matter how hard they try to extinguish our identities, this time, we’re standing together and fighting back. This time, they will know how powerful we truly are.”
The tour will kick off in Las Vegas on July 5 and carry on for several dates into the following month where it will wrap up Aug 18 in Ventura, CA.
Tickets can be found and purchased here.
The new album will be out later this year on Napalm Records.
