Children Of Bodom Announce North American Tour Dates For 20th Anniversary

Finland’s finest metal band Children of Bodom celebrates their 20th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the band will hit the road this winter for a North American tour. Dates kick off October 31 in Dallas, TX and wrap up December 1 in Montreal, QC. Joining them as support acts are Lost Society, Uncured, and Carach Angren.

According to frontman Alexi Laiho, the band will mainly play material from their first three albums and won’t play anything newer than Hatecrew Deathroll:

“Remember, guys, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience seeing us playing all kinds of obscure tracks off the first album, stuff from the second and third albums that we ain’t played in over 15 years and the general rule, really, is that there will not be a single song newer than the ‘Hate Crew Deathroll’ tracks so it’s all about old-school COB! So even if ‘Something Wild’ isn’t your favorite album, I can guarantee that it will be entertaining, nostalgic and flat-out funny as hell to be a part of this madness so that’s one party you just cannot miss! I hope to see you there, ladies and gents!”
