Children Of Bodom Announce North American Tour

Swallow The Sun and Wolfheart will fill out the bill.

Finnish power-thrashers Children Of Bodom will drop Hexed, their first album in four years, this coming March. Along with the release comes a treat for American fans: the band is heading out on tour, with fellow countrymen Swallow The Sun and Wolfheart in tow.

The band hits the road on 3/13 in Canada. Also appearing throughout the tour are Knoxville-based band Summoner’s Circle, Catalonian metalcore act Hollow Cry, and Belgian death metallers Fragmentum.

Bodom frontman and guitar mage Alexi Laiho said the following of the tour: “Just wanna say and empathize [sic] the word “finally” … fuckin’ finally we’ll be back on the road — like old school style and over the pond too!! We’ll be in your town just as you’re getting your hands on the new record. Even if you do not have it, don’t worry cause we’re gonna rotate the setlist to include old tracks that will blow your mind back to hell so it’s gonna be a good fuckin’ party ladies and gentlemen. Hoping to see you there!”
