OTEP Reveals Official Details and Release Date for Upcoming Album, “Kult 45″

Iconic rockers OTEP are about to unveil their most uncompromising, candid, all-inclusive and controversial assessment of the current residing political regime that they have ever released in the form of their eighth full-length album, aptly titled Kult 45. Drawing influences from politically-charged recording artists of the past but allowing her artwork to remain fully and undeniably OTEP, Otep Shamaya continues her nearly two-decade invasion of the senses on July 27, 2018 when Kult 45 drops via Napalm Records. This is OTEP like you’ve never heard them before.

Otep - Kult 45

Kult 45 is available for pre-order now exclusively via the Napalm Records Online Store, and will be available in CD (jewel case) format with bonus tracks and Vinyl format in black, as well as individual red and gold Vinyl colors (each Napalm Records exclusives). Digital pre-orders will become available soon.

“You can expect a complete and total mutiny of the senses on Kult 45,” says Shamaya. “That said, it’s important for fans to know that this record is not just an indictment of Trump. The idea is rather to empower people to stand up and remind them this is our country and we have the power. It’s primarily a rallying cry for people with common sense and good-natured patriots to rise up and know that we own this nation.”

“Although the album is produced well technically, lyrically, it’s very raw. Musically, we explore different genres – we’re trying to reach everyone. I don’t want to be limited to one genre or to be anchored to a particular space where I can only reach certain political minds. It’s important to me that I’m sending a clear and concise message to the Resistance – the people out there bending the barricades and fighting for justice is this country.
