The band’s live dates include Metallica Weekend 2023 takeover performances.
Venice beach upstarts Ottto are set to begin a month-long co-headlining trek alongside Bastardane that will see both bands participate with special performances for the Metallica Weekend 2023 takeovers in cities like New York, Montreal, Dallas, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
Ahead of the tour, the band have released a brand new visual from their recently launched full length, Life Is A Game. Enlisting director Paul Marchand, who has helmed successful music documentaries including Jaco and Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, the tandem has delivered a fresh new cut for the track, “Skyscraper”.
Sourcing archived skate, surf and pop culture footage, mixed in with raucous performance cuts and a headtrip of a boardgame, the video offers a fitting portrayal of OTTTO’s Venice roots and hard-hitting lineage.
“OTTTO rocks,” says Marchand. “But man, to be honest we all had a lot of milk to drink that day. I just remember the swell was down and the surf zombies came inland. Someone brought a board game? This kinda stuff just happens in Topanga. I think it was a Tuesday.”
