About Bad Omens
Bad Omens carefully direct each nuance of their music, approaching the process with an auteur mindset. The California quartet—Noah Sebastian [lead vocals], Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson [lead guitar, vocals], Nicholas Ruffilo [bass], and Nick Folio [drums]—explore the enigmatic idiosyncrasies of their signature sound on 2019’s Finding God Before God Finds Me [Sumerian Records], imbuing cinematic electronics and gospel stature into metallic melodies. Produced by Noah and Jolly, the ten-track trip unfurls like the sonic equivalent of a gripping existential drama. “What makes us a rock band is the fact we play instruments, but we’ve always been pretty experimental in terms of post-production,” explains Noah. “We dove after a specific sound without boundaries. What separates us is the attention to detail in every song.” Bad Omens diligently worked to hone this approach since their 2016 self-titled debut. As the entire tracklisting tallied nearly 30 million streams, the breakthrough single “The Worst In Me” leapt past the 8 million mark on Spotify. Meanwhile, “Glass Houses” clocked 4.7 million Spotify streams, “Exit Wounds” racked up 2.6 million Spotify streams, and “Reprise (The Sound of the End),” “The Fountain,” “F E R A L,” and “Enough, Enough Now” each exceeded 1 million-plus on the platform. Along the way, they received looks from Alternative Press, New Noise, and Revolver and toured alongside everyone from Parkway Drive to Bullet For My Valentine and Asking Alexandria. Following Warped Tour 2017, the group commenced writing for what would become Finding God Before God Finds Me. “The last record was so melancholic, sad, dark, and nihilistic at points,” he admits. “Before we started really writing the new record, I went through some things that opened up my mind and made me realize who I wanted to be as a musician, what message I wanted to send, and the feeling I needed to inspire. This is predominantly hopeful. There’s a sense of underdogs overcoming adversity. We should be a safe place for people. There’s also a musical feeling of uplifting catharsis. It’s not entirely happy or sad, but more so regal.” This drove 2018 singles “Careful What You Wish For” and “The Hell I Overcame.” Fans immediately responded as the former generated 1.5 million Spotify streams and the latter quickly neared 2 million. With Jolly a world away in Sweden, they finished the record remotely, maximizing the time in between tours to cap off a panoramic vision. The 2019 single “Burning Out” couples strains of piano and choir with trudging distortion and a sweeping and soaring chant of empowerment, “I was lost, but now I’m found under the lights and in the sound.” “It’s about the impact music has made on me and how it saved me in a sense,” he continues. “It’s about my relationship with myself and music and how I overcame my emotions and took advantage of this ability to reach a better place. I wanted the lyrics to give you a sense of hope.” Bad Omens slither through boundaries, only to ultimately choke convention in the process. The quartet—Noah Sebastian [vocals], Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson [guitar], Nick Ruffilo [bass], and Nick Folio [drums]—materialize with ghostly atmospherics, striking hooks, and the tingles of sensual high-register harmonies uplifted by cinematic production. Racking up over 250M worldwide streams to-date and earning acclaim, the band present an uncompromising and undeniable vision on their third full-length album, THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND [Sumerian Records]. “Making the record changed us as songwriters and musicians. In many ways I feel like it set me free as an artist because every decision made in the writing process was for myself, with no fear for anyone else’s expectations of what our third album should sound like. Be it our fans or our record label.” They’ve always wielded this level of magic though… The group’s 2016 self-titled debut, Bad Omens, yielded fan favorites such as “Glass Houses” and “The Worst In Me,” which eclipsed 20.4 million Spotify streams. On its heels, 2019’s Finding God Before God Finds Me spawned “Dethrone” [9.5 million Spotify streams] and “Careful What You Wish For” [8.8 million Spotify streams]. Along the way, they toured with numerous marquee acts and received tastemaker praise. After their first headline tour was cancelled mid-way at the top of the Global Pandemic, the band found themselves at home in Los Angeles with plenty of time. Where they absorbed and imparted a different palette of unexpected inspirations. Channeling what the frontman describes at times as a “cursive sound,” they embraced a newfound confidence and boundlessly loose creativity. Anything went in the studio, and all “rules” were broken. Noah and Jolly wrote, produced, and engineered the music themselves while GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer and songwriter Zakk Cervini [Halsey, Grimes, Poppy, blink-182] lent his talents with the mix and master. Challenging himself, Noah decided to “make a track sampling items around the house, none of which were musical instruments.” This ultimately became the framework for the first single “THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND.” Claps puncture the icy soundscape as his voice stretches from a breathy moan into an evocative and entrancing hook, breaking from a whisper into the seductive chant, “It wasn’t hard to realize. Love’s the death of peace of mind.” It culminates on a climactic scream uplifted by a distorted crunch. “The whole record really details the loss of peace of mind,” he explains. “The lyrics in the title track are a little more specific in terms of the conflict at the heart of something more intimate and personal.” Then, there’s “TAKE ME FIRST.” The vocals swirl around a syncopated riff before bleeding into a skyscraping refrain. “It was written in the moment about another personal experience,” he goes on. “As I zoomed out, I actually felt like at times I was talking about the band and not just this one experience. Now in several ways, to me it’s about what we face and go through as a band right now.” Elsewhere, his feral delivery tears through a guttural groove on “ARTIFICIAL SUICIDE,” while emotionally charged vocals coast above a string-laden hum on “JUST PRETEND” before a rush of distortion on the hook. “There are a lot of scenes and elements addressed in the lyrics about social media and the disconnect,” he goes on. “Every song traces back to not being able to have peace of mind because of something, whether it’s your guilt, regret, indifference with things you can’t change, or because you’re struggling to pay your bills. There are so many messages represented across the record, but it all falls back to how I wish I could feel at ease.” By speaking it aloud, Bad Omens offer a level of comfort and empathy, with a sinister shroud. At the same time, they also give rock music a sexy new shape on THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND. “Sonically, we want to do something you can’t arrive late or early too,” he leaves off. “You can’t cheat your way to the final act. You have to get on the ride and process it until the end. The songs are meant to be heard from start to finish. We want you to take the whole trip with us.”

They were so freaking awesome!! I would love to see them again. The set list was amazing. Seeing them live actually made me love their new album even more. The energy was great and non-stop. They kept everything going and even interacted with the crowd. I’d love to see them again! I See Stars and ERRA where amazing and I’ve become and ERRA fan from it. Merch prices weren’t that expensive either! The fans and crowd were great for someone who’s 17 and went to their first metal concert. Venue was super nice and clean too! I’d go and see them again any time! Just get your tickets earlier and won’t get up charged from scalpers like me.

The Venue and Poppy were amazing, the sound quality too. It was just a shame that the fans were pretty rude and had no idea how concerts work. I usually don’t no d screeching fangirls (I kinda am one myself but this time it was really bad..). I’ve been to a lot of concerts and festivals and this one had the worst vibes I’ve ever experienced. Other than that, as I said, Poppy was incredible, Bad Omens weren’t bad, however, they were pretty late and the pauses between the songs were jarring. All in all, would go again, but maybe not in the pit this time, it’s not worth it because there’s no moshing or anything.

This band has come so far!! Their music is lyrically brilliant. Their experimentation with different sounds and their creativity blows my mind! I have seen them 4x since September and every show has been different. A different setlist, different vibe. I don't experience that often. Most bands I see in the same year have basically the same scripted show, but not Bad Omens. Every show they change it up but are incredible nonetheless. I'd suggest seeing them if you get the chance. Noah's screams/growls just hit you right in the guts! They are very talented musicians!! I met him after the show and he's a soooo tall lol but an extremely nice guy. 🤘🔥

Bad Omens had amazing energy and sounded awesome live. They put on an amazing show. So amazing that everyone who attended with me talked about driving even further to see them again on the same tour.. they did not disappoint! Venue was brutal as usual- I've been to several shows here and everyone is always packed in there like sardines. This time the air conditioning went out and the venue's security made people leave their standing only spots to pay for water - sweet Noah from Bad Omens was doing more to try to help people not pass out from heat exhaustion than the venue & that shouldn't have had to be his job!

The venue was well organized, enough space and good air. Due to the fact that it was the biggest Bad omens concert so far, but the stage is rather designed for smaller halls, there was not much to see of the artists when you stood at the very back. Poppy as the opening act was unfortunately not so good because she was hardly understandable and the stage lighting constantly dazzled the audience. Since I absolutely love Bad omens and their music, I can only report good things over it, even if their music was often not perfectly tuned for the big hall. I had a great evening🤘💕

Bad Omens...my boys...amazing set. Loved the stage presence. Even for a crowd you’ve never played for before. Noah and Joakim a while after they played and hung out at the merch table for the rest of the night. Got a pic with both of them and they couldn’t be more nice. They seemed really chill and actually seemed like they wanted to be there. There’s a reason Bad Omens is one of my favorite bands. Sorry you guys got stuck with the snow after leaving...one of the reasons why I can’t wait to leave here. Hope to see you guys again here..just preferably before winter comes.

I had a wonderful time watching this stream! I’m not on social media, so the cover of Sympathy shocked me in such a great way. I’m grateful I was at home for this show because I was straight up sobbing and singing my soul out. Thank you for paying tribute to Keaton and his incredible musical legacy! With that being said, I was beyond impressed by the stage presence, energy, and professionalism shown by Bad Omens! The vocals were unreal and the night was unforgettable. I look forward to losing my mind and voice in person next time!

Went for dayseeker a favorite band of mine, make them suffer Impressed me with their live show as well. Left after the sympathy Too Close Too Touch cover, as I’m not a huge fan of bad omens but they put on a good show from what I heard. Merch was going for 40$+ for all the bands even tho I had seen dayseeker a few months earlier and they were charging less than that on their headline tour I was vip for. All in all good show at a venue closer to where I live than most.

The venue was okay but quite wide. The band was just great and definitely worth the experience. I just wish there was a screen so people further back could get a better view. The sound and lights at Bad Omens were also insanely good. We were quite far back but it was still perfect. The atmosphere was good and we had a lot of fun. Thank you to Bad Omens for the wonderful show and thank you for your work and the great evening. I'm already looking forward to the next time. 🤘🏽🖤
