Otep have launched a video for their track Zero.

The Los Angeles band previously issued a stream of the song from seventh album Generation Doom, which was released in April this year via Napalm Records.

Speaking about the promo, the band say in a statement: “We wanted to capture not only what it looks like during our live shows, but what it feels like. That raw, undulating emotional chaos that permeates every atom of every person who attends.

“If you haven’t been to one of our rituals, this is what it feels like to have your soul explode and your heart catch fire.”

The band released a video for their track In Cold Blood in April.

Otep are currently on tour across the US in support of the follow-up to 2013’s Hydra. They’ll play at Lake Park’s Kelsey Theater later tonight.
