On May 3rd, Otenki will be releasing their second EP, entitled, 'Kinetic', along with the lead single, "Ghosts", on February 7. Following up their debut release, 'Making Sense of Static', Kinetic was produced by Gold selling producer, James Paul Wisner (Paramore, underOATH, Dashboard Confessional). Influenced by Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, and Armor for Sleep, 'Kinetic' showcases Otenki’s dynamic musicianship and well-crafted songs touching on their love and appreciation for their fans (“Kinetic”), accepting turbulence in your life (“Violence”), and being haunted by the remnants of past relationships (“Ghosts”).
Otenki have been featured in Alternative Press and Substream Music Press, as well as the first American band to be featured in Ourzone Magazine’s Fanzone Section. Past tours include spots on Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos as well as opening for Forever The Sickest Kids, Nevershoutnever!, Runner Runner, Atreyu, and There for Tomorrow. The band is also currently ranked #19 on Billboard's Top 50 Uncharted Artists.
