There are a number of reasons for a band to drop off a tour, including the recent partial toe amputation that forced High on Fire off their planned trek with Municipal Waste, but font size is certainly a new one. Yes, that’s right, Bad Omens have apparently dropped off their support stint on the newly announced Amity Affliction and Senses Fail co-headlining trek because they weren’t happy with the size of their name on the tour poster.
The “Misery Will Find You Tour” was just announced a couple days ago in a press release, with The Amity Affliction and Senses Fail co-headlining, along with support from Bad Omens and Belmont. But today, Amity Affliction broke the news about Bad Omens, stating, “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.”
The statement continued, “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.”
The North American trek kicks off January 4th in Anaheim, California, and works its way east before returning to the West Coast for a tour-closing show February 9th in Los Angeles. Full dates can be seen below, along with the original tour poster in question.
