Chart topping and 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Artist (Alt & Rock) nominee Bad Omens have teamed up with Grammy Award-nominated Poppy for a brand new single, “V.A.N.”

The single was premiered earlier today via SiriusXM Octane and now the ferocious single has been released alongside a cinematic music video, which can be seen below.

Written and produced by Bad Omens’ frontman Noah Sebastian, the song is the first glimpse of what the band will be offering on their upcoming album, the CONCRETE FOREVER project also known as CONCRETE JUNGLE OST. The project is an experimental extension of Bad Omens’ hit album, THE DEATH OF PEACE OF MIND, and the soundtrack to their Concrete Jungle’ comic book universe.

When asked about his approach to creating the single  Sebastian explained, 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.”

Playing off the AI concept of the track and taking additional visual inspiration from the video game Portal, the film Ex Machina, and Stranger Things, the story is brought to life by a visually stunning sci-fi thriller. In the mini film written by Sebsastian, Poppy, and Garrett Nicholson, Poppy portrays a synthetic human being held captive and subjected to experiments in a laboratory, eventually escaping and embarking on a murderous rampage.
