Tin Omen are a UK-based band who describe themselves as "industrial-electro" in style. Their sound is a mix of powerful beats, dirty guitars and melodic keyboards topped with female vocals.

Formed in Wolverhampton in 1998 by Bryan Sutton (programming, samples and guitar). Bryan was quickly joined by Kelly Newton (lyrics, vocals) and John Baker (programming, keyboards, guitars and backing vocals). They are known for their polished live performances (assisted by live sound engineer/tour manager Stan Saunders) and the high quality production of their recorded work (produced by former Dream Disciples Gordon Young). The band is named after the Skinny Puppy track of the same name.

They have a strong fan base in the goth, industrial and electronic scenes, and have played at many related festivals in the UK, including Infest as well as supporting other bands such as Gary Numan, Ministry, Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Spear of Destiny, as well as performing many sold out headline performances of their own.
