In the latest countdown for the week of February 10, ‘Just Pretend’ continues its epic run at No.1 having spent 73 total weeks on the chart.

Then at No.2, it is a brand new entry for their recent collaboration with Poppy, ‘V.A.N’.

On writing the track, frontman Noah Sebastian said “That’s a song that started just with the hook ‘Violence against nature’, and then after saving the project with the acronym and seeing it we realized it could be fun to think of ‘VAN’ as a name. Thus the rabbit hole of ideas began that led us to decide to write lyrics from the perspective of an artificial intelligence gone rogue.”

‘V.A.N’ is taken from the upcoming deluxe extended edition of the band’s 2022 album ‘The Death Of Peace Of Mind’. That record’s title track is still sitting at No.3 on the Billboard countdown after 65 total weeks on the chart.

Both ‘Just Pretend’ and ‘The Death Of Peace Of Mind’ were recently certified Gold in the US for sales of over 500,000 units each.

Bad Omens won Best International Artist at the 2023 Rock Sound Awards. You can read our full interview with Noah inside the special awards edition of the magazine, available right here.

They will return to the UK this June when they will headline the Opus Stage at Download Festival on Friday June 14. Get tickets and further details here.
