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 canceled 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."
