Bad Omens have announced a new handful of US headlining tour dates

Metalcore darlings Bad Omens recently closed out a sold-out headlining North American run and are currently on another sold-out tour of Europe and the UK. Now, the band has announced a handful of new, North American headline dates for 2023, as well as some festival appearances.

Bad Omens will hit the road starting in early May with some festival dates, following by their first 2023 US headline gig on May 17 in Birmingham, Alabama. They’ll remain on the run through a June 4 date in Wichita, Kansas.

An artist pre-sale starts Tuesday (Feb. 14) at 10 a.m. CST and continues through Thursday (Feb. 16), for 48 hours only. Tickets going on sale to the general public this Friday (Feb. 17) at 10 a.m. CST. View the full roster of tour dates below and find tickets here.

Meanwhile, the band has also recently sold out their first-ever Knotfest sideshow Australian headline dates and announced four venue upgrades in Europe to accommodate sold-out gigs. All the fanfare is partly thanks to the success of the band’s viral single “Just Pretend,” which is currently inside the top five at rock radio in the US. A press release also teases to, “Keep an eye out for more Bad Omens news coming soon.”

Bad Omens features Noah Sebastian on vocals, Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson on guitar, Nick Ruffilo on bass and Nick Folio on drums. The band’s latest album, 2022’s “The Death of Peace of Mind,” features a unique blend of metalcore with experimental sounds.

“Making the record changed us as songwriters and musicians,” Sebastian said in a statement. “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.”

He added regarding the new album, “Sonically, we want to do something you can’t arrive late or early, too. 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.”
