Bad Omens Cancel Entire Summer Tour, Noah Sebastian Takes Mental Health Break

Bad Omens have decided to cancel all their Europe and UK tour dates for summer 2024 to prioritize the health and well-being of their vocalist, Noah Sebastian.

The metalcore giants had gigs lined up at festivals like Download and Tuska Open Air, as well as shows with Bring Me The Horizon.

They shared a statement on social media explaining their decision:

“I’ve been experiencing what can only be described as extreme burnout. While all the touring and work that we’ve put into this album cycle the last several years has been so gratifying and rewarding, it has also pushed me to the limits of my mental bandwidth. Putting my mind and body in conflict with one another in ways that are becoming detrimental to my health on the road.”

He added that the decision took time and it was for his well-being:

“That said, after heavy consideration we’ve decided that we need to cancel all of our performances coming up this summer in Europe and the U.K. This decision is in the best interest of my health and wellbeing, and of the long term sustainability of Bad Omens. We need to protect and restore all of the energy that will be demanded of us again soon as we transition into the next chapter. We know this will be disappointing, but we ask that you respect our choice to put health first.”

Mental Health Issues Affected Other Rockers Too

Similar to Bad Omens’ news, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor also canceled shows for the same reason earlier this year.

His North American solo tour which was to kick off in Toronto on February 3rd and run through March 3rd with Des Rocs and Jigsaw Youth as support acts, was canceled. Taylor said it’s because his mental and physical health has been declining. He shared the news on Instagram:

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the cancellation of my upcoming North American tour. For the past several months my mental and physical health have been breaking down, and I reached a place that was unhealthy for my family and I. I know this decision will come as a shock to some and may be regarded as unpopular by others – but after taking a hard look at where I am and where I was going, I need to pull myself back and be home with my family for the time being.”
