OTEP frontwoman Otep Shamaya will appear on HBO's "Def Poetry Jam" this Friday, August 5. To view the teaser trailer for this episode, click here.

Best described as a performance poetry event, "Def Poetry Jam" features poets who blend hip-hop — poetry's musical cousin — with the written and spoken word.

OTEP's sophomore album, "House of Secrets" (2004), was produced by Greg Wells, who has previously worked with a diverse range of artists, including the DEFTONES, MICHELLE BRANCH, and ELTON JOHN. The follow-up to 2002's "Sevas Tra" was recorded at Los Angeles' Rocket Carousel Studios and features guest drumming on six tracks by SLIPKNOT basher Joey Jordison.
