Bad Omens Drop Off Upcoming Tour With The Amity Affliction, Senses Fail, & Belmont

Bad Omens have dropped off their tour with The Amity Affliction, Senses Fail, and Belmont. The Amity Affliction and Senses Fail claim the band pulled out because “they were unhappy about the size of their name on the artwork,” but Bad Omens have since fired back with their own statement saying “terms of [their] deal to be the direct support act on this co-headline tour were negotiated prior to accepting the tour and they were not honored.”

Here’s The Amity Affliction and Senses Fail’s statement:

“We have to let you know that Bad Omens have pulled out of this tour. They were unhappy about the size of their name on the artwork and felt the need to pull out the day after we announced.

Both The Amity Affliction and Senses Fail are working hard to find a replacement and we look forward to sharing that with you as soon as possible.”

Here’s Bad Omens’ statement:

“We are always professional and respectful with the bands that we tour with. Anyone that’s toured with us can attest to that. We are not a band that creates problems or ever finds itself involved in “drama”. With that being said the last thing we wanted to do was make a big deal out of our departure from the tour with Senses Fail / Amity Affliction when announcing that we would no longer be on it. But due to both Senses Fail and The Amity Affliction’s attempts to publicly drag our name in the mud along with all of the online bullying they’ve not only welcomed but encouraged – they’ve forced our hand.

The terms of our deal to be the direct support act on this co-headline tour were negotiated prior to accepting the tour and they were not honored. Our team politely and professionally asked it to be honored before the tour was announced and they refused. Specific assets requested were neither sent or approved. After all of this and the tour still going live we did our best to remedy the situation to stay involved and we were met with total disrespect. At this point it was a matter of principle. We aren’t going to be another young band that gets pushed around by older bands. Sorry if that doesn’t work for you. This public shaming campaign the bands have created online is both ironic and symbolic to the situation, as well as confirmation we made the right choice by leaving this tour. I grew up listening to Senses Fail and I never imagined they would stimulate this kind of bullying or shaming over something so trivial – this unprofessional and ugly behavior is highly disappointing. None the less we wish the bands the best on their tour, and we apologize to anyone we’ve disappointed by dropping off the tour.

Standing up for yourself in any type of relationship, whether business or personal, is something Bad Omens believes in. Sometimes that means people get upset, hence having to write this.

We hope you enjoy our new shirt design.

We Came As Romans To Honor Kyle Pavone On Upcoming Tour With Bullet For My Valentine

We Came As Romans have confirmed that they will be moving ahead with their planned tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Bad Omens. The band will use the trek as a way to honor their late singer Kyle Pavone.

Dave Stephens said the following:

“The last few weeks Kyle‘s family, his fans, his friends, and the five of us have been expericing a very wide range of emotions, and for us it’s been the most difficult time of our lives. Through this we’ve been trying to be very honest with each other and open about how we’re feeling and grieving.

So, through all this we’ve decided that the best course of action for the band is to do the Bullet For My Valentine tour. We feel like this honors Kyle, and we can talk about his foundation, the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and carry on doing what he would have wanted us to do and us be together on stage, playing music together, with our fans.

We will not be replacing Kyle. We’ll be continuing on the five of us, and honoring his life for the next few weeks while we’re on tour.”
