Heavy metal group OTTTO, who are currently wrapping up work on their debut full-length, have partnered with Record Store Day for an exclusive, limited-edition vinyl release of their live album, Locos Live in Venice. The live album will be released on Black Friday, November 25.
Recorded in March at Juice Magazine headquarters, right off of the Venice Beach boardwalk, the eight-song album was produced and mixed by Tim Harkins and offers an early preview of the music to come on the as-of-yet-untitled studio recording coming in Spring 2023.
Bassist Tye Trujillo says: “It was an amazing experience playing inside the Juice Magazine house. Giving me flashbacks of our first show in 2018, which took place in the exact room, giving that raw OTTTO sound.”
The album news comes as the band returns to the road for a handful of shows throughout the fall, including a performance at the Navajo Nation Metal Fest.
