Bad Omens cancel summer UK and European tour dates due to “extreme burnout”

Bad Omens have announced they have cancelled their summer UK and European tour dates due to “extreme burnout”.

The metalcore band were due to finish off their tour in the UK/Europe from June until July, including a huge co-headline show with BABYMETAL in Toulouse, France.

However, they have taken to social media to confirm they will not be playing their remaining summer shows, with frontman Noah Sebastian writing he was experiencing “what can only be described as extreme burnout”.

“While all the touring and work that we’ve put into this album cycle the last several years has been so rewarding and gratifying, it has also pushed me to the limits of my mental bandwidth,” he added. “Putting my mind and body in conflict with one another in ways that are becoming detrimental to my health on the road.”

Sebastian wrote that after “heavy consideration”, the band have decided to cancel their remaining summer dates in the Europe and UK, continuing: “This decision is in the best interest of my health and wellbeing, and of the long term sustainability of Bad Omens.

“We need to protect and restore all of the energy that will be demanded of us again soon as we transition into the next chapter.”

The band recently announced their ‘Concrete Jungle’ soundtrack, sharing its first single with HEALTH and Swarm called ‘The Drain’.

‘Concrete Jungle [The OST]’ will drop soon on May 31, and has been described as an experimental extension of Bad Omens’ hit 2022 album ‘The Death Of Peace Of Mind’ and the soundtrack to their ‘Concrete Jungle’ comic book universe. The project also features collaborators Bob VylanWargasm, Jenny (Let’s Eat Grandma) and more.

According to a press release, ‘The Drain’ “serves as a testament to the symbiotic creative energy between these two formidable musical entities, drawing upon their individually distinct sonic profiles to create a masterfully-crafted, uniquely heavy single.”

Bad Omens spoke with NME last year, where Sebastian opened up about his work ethic on third album ‘The Death of Peace of Mind’. “I feel like I really came into my own over the last year and a half,” he told NME. “During the pandemic, [I] really wanted to improve my voice because I’m always very hyper-critical of myself. [It was] a combination of that and getting in better shape and being healthier, sleeping better, eating better.”

“Because of what I’ve been able to do with my vocals, that’s why this record is so vocal-focused. The production is built around nuances in the vocal takes, and the lyrics, the subject matter and the emotion that you can deliver in a vocal,” he added.
