OTEP To Report From 'The Front Line'

Capitol Records recording artist OTEP will report from the road during this summer's Ozzfest tour on XM Satellite Radio, the nation's leading provider of satellite radio. OTEP will be touring in support of their sophomore release, "House of Secrets", the eagerly awaited album from the acclaimed dark metallists, in stores on July 27.

The band's lead singer (and namesake) Otep and bassist Evil J will file reports on XM Radio each week during the tour. Armed with a digital tape recorder, the band will collect political opinions and personal views from artists, crew members, and fans at Ozzfest.

The segments — called "The Front Line" — will give XM listeners a rare, first-hand perspective of life on the road as OTEP travels across the country.

"The Front Line" will appear on "XM Liquid Metal", XM's 24-hour uncensored hard-metal channel, as well as the hard-alternative-rock channel "Squizz" and hard-rock channel "Boneyard".

"Every day a statement is made, from the hair styles we choose, to the music we listen to, to the books we read, to the people we date, to the cars we drive, to the clothes we wear," explained Otep in a press release. "Everyone makes a statement, and this is no different. In fact, its probably one of the most important things we can do: to speak out, to have a voice, to have an opinion, to be informed, to be involved, to celebrate our democracy with a festival of support or dissent. I am very honored to be working with XM Radio and 'Liquid Metal' this summer to be a part of the new American movement of provoked, passionate citizens."
