Otep is a band formed in 2000 in Los Angeles, California by Otep Shamaya. The band originally formed as a four-piece band and were invited to play Ozzfest before they had even signed to a label after Sharon Osbourne witnessed a brief part of their live performance. They've since played Ozzfest several times.
Last month, Otep kicked off the “Seduce And Destroy” tour in Sacramento, CA with trek support One-Eyed Doll and Picture Me Broken. Lead by singer-songwriter, actress, poet, writer, and painter Otep Shamaya, the LA-based alt metallers pummeled their way through nine U.S. cities before making their triumphant return to The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on . Otep was last at The Studio on August 31, 2012 (). A collection of new photos from Otep‘s 3/31 Manhattan show can be viewed below. See a full list of upcoming Otep tour dates .
