“Love’s the death of peace of mind”, claim Bad Omens in the title track of their new album, due out February 25
Bad Omens have just shared the details of their upcoming third album, titled The Death of Peace of Mind. The record, which lifts the band to another level both musically and artistically, is due out February 25 via Sumerian Records.
The announcement of the new album came along with the launch of the title track and a music video. When listening to ‘The Death of Peace of Mind’ and watching the music video for it, one cannot help noticing the discrepancy. On the one hand, it’s the lyrics, revolving around missing the loved one after breakup:
I miss the way you say my name, the way you bend, the way you break
Your makeup running down your face, the way you touch, the way you taste
On the other, however, we’ve got striking visuals, showing the band playing among the corpses of people, wrapped in black plastic trash bags. What a gloomy yet artistic visual Bad Omens have gone for!
The record was a significant one for Bad Omens, as they drew inspiration for The Death of Peace of Mind in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Making the record changed us as songwriters and musicians,” wrote Bad Omens’s vocalist Noah Sebastian in the official press release. “In many ways, I feel like it set me free as an artist because every decision made in the writer 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.”
The band used the time of the first COVID-19 lockdown at home in Los Angeles to produce the new album by themselves, while the mixing and mastering was given to Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Zakk Cervini (blink-182, Halsey).
