Concrete Jungle' will be distributed via Sumerian Comics and is co-written by frontman Noah Sebastian.

Ascending rock phenoms Bad Omens have shared a new visual for the smash hit single, "Just Pretend" from the band's hailed 2022 full length, The Death of Peace of Mind. The cinematic effort was directed by Erik Rojas and follows a heartbreaking, sci-fi driven story penned by Bad Omens' frontman and architect, Noah Sebastian.

Falling somewhere between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Matrix, the clip reiterates the creative prowess of the band with the arrival of the ambitious visual achievement.

In addition to the release of the latest clip, Bad Omens have announced the launch of a limited comic book series dubbed, Concrete Jungle. The series comprised of four issues is penned by Noah Sebastian and Kevin Roditeli and features the illustration of Nicola Izzo. The project is inspired by the most recent album, Death of Peace of Mind.

The monthly series launches issue one on September 6th via Sumerian Comics, an extension of Sumerian Records. A new issue will be released each month after. Get more into on the series - HERE
