About Bad Omens
Bad Omens are a Los Angeles metalcore band who traffic in punishing breakdowns and anthemic choruses that evoke contemporaries like Bring Me the Horizon and Periphery. The group was born in 2013 from a handful of solo demos by lead singer Noah Sebastian, who eventually added longtime friends Nicholas Ryan (guitar) and Vincent Riquier (bass) to the fold. A friend of Riquier's, Joakim "Jolly" Karlsson, joined on guitar, and drummer Nick Folio was added after submitting samples over the Internet. Sumerian Records was impressed with the songwriting on their early demos and signed the band in 2015.
Bad Omens quickly grew a fan base with singles including "Exit Wounds" and "The Worst in Me." Based on an unhealthy relationship of Sebastian's, but "universal to all bad habits," their eponymous debut landed on the Billboard rock, hard rock, independent, and Heatseekers album charts upon release in 2016. Early 2019 saw the arrival of the singles "Said & Done" and "Burning Out" ahead of the release of the band's sophomore full-length effort, Finding God Before God Finds Me, which appeared later that August. ~ Marcy Donelson
