OTEP is finally going on tour in May! It is called the Sermons of Fire – The Forbidden Psalms of Sevas Tra and Hydra tour. It is the first time OTEP has been on tour since 2019 and begins in Sacramento, California at Old Ironsides on May 10th, hitting a total of twenty-seven cities spanning across the West Coast, the Mid-West, the South, and the East Coast, ending in Sparks, Nevada at The Ranch House on June 17th.
The tour is in celebration of the on-going twentieth anniversary of Sevas Tra, her debut album, which released in June of 2002. It is also to celebrate the tenth anniversary of her sixth album, Hydra, that came out in January of 2013. There will be a re-release of Hydra on vinyl that will have three sides of Music and one side is a picture disc. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
OTEP’s long awaited ninth album is scheduled to come out later this year. If you follow her social media pages, she’s been posting little teases as to what we can expect. One of the songs is a cover of The Way I Am by Eminem, from The Marshall Mathers LP.
We also can be expecting a new video and single coming out sometime in the Spring.
