Children of Bodom Unveil 2019 North American Tour Dates
This year will see Finland's melodeath maniacs Children of Bodom release their 10th studio album, Hexed. The group worked with their longtime producer Mikko Karmilla, who was behind classic records like Follow the Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll among others, and they've just announced a North American tour in support of the effort.
Bodom will be joined by Swallow the Sun and Wolfheart for the full run, which spans from March 13 through April 19. Summoner's Circle, Hollow Cry and Fragmentum will all provide additional support on select dates.
See the full list of stops below.
Frontman Alexi Laiho, eager for the tour to begin, exclaimed, "Hello North America! Just wanna say and empathize 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!!"
Hexed will be out March 8. Pre-order your copy at the Nuclear Blast webstore.
