Otenki Releases Single Ghosts from Upcoming E.P. Kinetic
Holding firmly in the top 50 of Billboard's Uncharted chart, Houston, Texas based band, Otenki, have announced plans to release their second E.P., Kinetic, in Summer 2011.
Billboard's Uncharted chart lists the top 50 new and developing acts registered as MySpace Music artists who have not yet appeared on a major Billboard chart. Artists are ranked according to their MySpace page views, fans and streamed plays as well as their popularity across several social media sites, amongst them YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, iLike, Twitter and Last.fm. Band data is tracked by on-line aggregator Next Big Sound.
Needless to say the competition is fierce, not only to make the top 50, but to maintain your spot. However, through hard work, diligence and a positive attitude and message, Otenki have managed not only to build a large fan following, but to catch the attention of industry veterans as well who have been willing to apply their own expertise and wisdom to help Otenki move to the next level in order to achieve their dreams.
Listen to the first single release from Otenki's up-coming E.P., Kinetic, "Ghosts."
It's not just a matter of musical talent that sets Otenki apart, a sound that the band compares to Anberlin, Jimmy Eat World and Armor for Sleep, it is Otenki's attitude of respect that distinguishes them most of all, a respect that is so sorely lacking in many artists who make it this far on their own--the attitude that others should respect them for what they have achieved thus far--and the rest should just be handed over on a silver platter because they've earned it.
Rather than relying solely on Internet numbers or getting caught up in the ego-driven, roller coaster of MySpace Music Artists, Otenki have rolled up their sleeves and gone to work. They've appeared on Van's Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos. They've filled the opening slot for bands like Atreyu, Forever The Sickest Kids, Nevershoutnever!, Runner Runner and There for Tomorrow.Continued on the next page
