OTEP has scheduled the following headlining shows during the "off" days on the band's current Balls Volume Strength Tour with HELLYEAH and BLOODSIMPLE:

Nov. 18 - Farmington, NM @ Gators
Nov. 30 - Tallahassee, FL @ Floyd's Music Store
Dec. 06 - Allentown, PA @ Crocodile Rock
Dec. 11 - Cleveland, OH @ Agora
Dec. 16 - Salt Lake City, UT @ Avalon

OTEP's new album, "The_Ascension", sold 10,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 81 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Produced by Dave Fortman (MUDVAYNE, EVANESCENCE), "The_Ascension" sees the band challenging itself to avoid clich├ęs and classifications and finding a new landscape of sound and vision. "We said 'genre limits and music fads be damned, let's write music that is important to us and that motivates us," explained Shamaya. "I wanted to write songs we believe in and let nothing stop us from building the album we want to make."
