OTTTO, the Los Angeles-based trio featuring Triko Chavez (drums), Bryan Noah Ferretti (vocals/guitar) and Tye Trujillo (bass), will be releasing their debut full-length album, Life Is a Game, on March 24th, 2023 via ORG. First track “My Pain” is out now, along with its accompanying video by Director Ali “Dr. Cosdem” Bilal. The album will arrive in multiple formats, including vinyl variants.
The vibe of this record was getting out of our comfort zone and being free. We were opening our eyes to what could be done. There were some cool harmonies, and we focused on the overall structure. It had a constant flow.
OTTTO released their self-titled debut EP in 2020, followed by multiple live outings, including slots at Lollapalooza and Bottle Rock, and opening for Suicidal Tendencies. Tye Trujillo also contributed the guitar parts for Eddie Munson in the show Stranger Things.
Most recently, the band issued the Record Store Day exclusive EP, Locos Live In Venice, which was recorded at the venerable Juice Magazine headquarters, right off of the Venice Beach boardwalk.
The band returns to the road this Spring, with several festival outings including Welcome to Rockville, and Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival.
