Bad Omens Releasing Self-Titled Album

Bad Omens will release a new self-titled, full-length debut album for Sumerian Records on August 19th.

The album is something of a mission statement for the Los Angeles-based quintet; Noah Sebastian [vocals], Nicholas Ryan [guitar], Joakim Jolly Karlsson [guitar], Vincent Riquier [bass], and Nick Folio [drums]. Bad Omens comments:

"We tried to spread awareness about being open minded when it comes to heavy music. We wanted to go beyond the realm of heavy and incorporate everything from industrial to soundtrack-style moments."

The guys spent months rehearsing in Nicks basement before hitting the studio with Will Putney [Upon A Burning Body, The Amity Affliction, Body Count] to record the album. The track listing is as follows:

1. Glass Houses
2. Exit Wounds
3. The Worst In Me
4. F E R A L
5. Enough, Enough Now
6. Malice
7. Hedonist
8. Broken Youth

Sumerian Records Announces 10 Year Tour

Sumerian Records continues to celebrate its 10 year anniversary, announcing the “10 Years In The Black Tour” featuring label artists Asking Alexandria and Born Of Osiris.

I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon a Burning Body and Bad Omens round out the North American tour, which launches on October 25 at Seattle’s Showbox Sodo and wraps up in early December.

“I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a tour,” Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce said. “Not only is this our first true North American headlining tour in two years, as well as our first real U.S. headliner with Denis [Stoff] as our vocalist, but this is also a tour celebrating the incredible 10 year journey of Sumerian Records. We couldn’t be more proud to headline such a pivotal tour package and to celebrate the music Sumerian has released. The tour will include our biggest production to date and the first trek out in support of our new album, The Black. This is going to be something incredibly special.”

“To see the celebration of a decade of Sumerian culminate with this tour is a true reflection of the communal spirit and vision that this label was built upon,” said Sumerian Records Founder Ash Avildsen. “Fans will get to see five headliners all go out together, which is very rare these days because of tour politics, egos, money and everything else that gets in the way of giving music lovers an unforgettable line-up. The fact that these five bands are sharing the stage together and still bringing an opening act to kick off the show makes this a truly special tour. I comment them all. Stay tuned for for lots of upcoming announcements about different activities for bands and fans to interact at at these shows that go beyond just watching them perform on stage. Mark my words: This will be the most progressive and interactive tour we have ever done. See you on the road.” More...

Sumerian Records Announces 10 Year Tour

Sumerian Records marks its 10 year anniversary with a four week tour featuring five of the Los Angeles labels’ bands: Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, After The Burial, Erra and Bad Omens.

“Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya and After The Burial have all played a crucial role in the new wave of progressive, heavy music and in the pedigree of Sumerian,” said label founder, Ash Avildsen.

Ash goes on to say, “They are some of the most genuine, hard-working and talented musicians I have had the privilege to work with. I vividly remember first seeing all three of them play together at a tiny legion hall in a small Illinois town when Sumerian was less than a year old and they were all unsigned. I can proudly say that without Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya and After The Burial together on the label, Sumerian would not have become the entity it is today. I am honored to have this Midwest menagerie carrying the 10 Year Tour and excited for our newcomers Erra and Bad Omens. Thank you to all of the fans who support the bands and the music. Without you, none of this would be possible. See you in the pit.” More...
