OTTTO RELEASE PAUL MARCHAND (“JACO”, “SELENA GOMEZ: MY MIND & ME”) DIRECTED VIDEO FOR “SKYSCRAPER”
CO-HEADLINING TOUR WITH BASTARDANE BEGINS SATURDAY; DATES INCLUDE METALLICA WEEKEND 2023 TAKEOVER PERFORMANCES
OTTTO, who kick off their co-headlining North American tour with Bastardane on Saturday, have released a Paul Marchand-directed video for “Skyscraper” (https://youtu.be/jIg3VzisIdQ) from the Venice Beach-based band’s recently released album, Life Is A Game.
Marchand, who is well known for his music documentaries, including “Jaco” and “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me,” directed the video that, in a nod to the album title, sees the trio playing a board game dubbed “Skyscraper” with each roll of the dice bringing chaos reigning down.
“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.”
OTTTO have received widespread praise for their recently released debut studio album, Life Is A Game (listen here) with Consequence describing the 10-song album as “fun, unpretentious thrash,” and Metal Injection saying: “OTTTO are destined for stardom… this trio has massive talent that is undeniable…” The band previously released a pair of videos from the new album, including the elaborate, carnival-themed video for “Dance of the Dead” (https://youtu.be/JinvmhzID4o), and the Dogtown-infused clip for “My Pain” (https://youtu.be/vTlRumyfaM8).

The band recently released their debut studio album, Life Is A Game, which Juice Magazine said “brings a fresh thrash metal skate sound from the streets of Venice to the unsuspecting masses of the world… with Dogtown attitude and surf skate style” and Metal Injection declared that the trio are “destined for stardom… there’s little doubt here.”
