Bad Omens drop off The Amity Affliction, Senses Fail tour

Bad Omens drop off tour over artwork

Los Angeles, CA alternative rock/metal group Bad Omens has dropped off their winter tour of North America with The Amity Affliction and Senses Fail, just two days after the trek was formally announced.

According to The Amity Affliction, the band pulled out of the tour because they were "unhappy about the size of their name on the artwork":

"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."


UPDATE: Bad Omens has now issued the following statement on the matter (and issued a new t-shirt featuring 'Bad Omens' in a tiny font):

"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."

If this is not only considered news, but the direction society is going, just let the nukes fly and be done with it. Existenceflip.

this is a whole new take on Tiers. Bad Omens was felt they were tier 2. the headliners billed them as tier 4. in all reality they are tier 8.

Imagine being such a centrist pssy that you call a band bullies one sentence and then the next you're wishing them all the best on their tour.

Grab your goddamn nuts and speak what's on your mind, not this weird PR stunt.

Senses Fail and The Amity Affliction is D tier post garbage filled music. They were only good because they directly cater to betas.

Good for bad omens, I wouldn't want to tour with such trash.

How will the 20 or less fans on each stop know to come to the show if they cannot see the band name on the flyer? Geez guys. Give em a break. They should hand out free glasses or contacts on the tour so people can see the small names.
