Finland's Children of Bodom Launch North American Headlining Tour

June 27, 2011
imgHard partying (and harder rocking) Finnish band CHILDREN OF BODOM (or COB) kicks off its summer North American headlining tour this evening in Los Angeles with a sold out show at the House of Blues.  The tour is the band's first in North America supporting its new album Relentless Reckless Forever which landed at #41 on the Billboard Top 200. The month long trek features direct support from Devin Townsend with openers Obscura and Septicflesh rotating positions each night and will run through July 24 in Montreal where COB will perform alongside KISS, Motörhead and more as part of the "Heavy MTL" hard rock festival.
Recorded in Finland with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), Relentless Reckless Forever is the seventh studio album of CHILDREN OF BODOM's illustrious career. COB's high-energy hooks and electric energy forge stadium-sized heavy metal anthems that seethe with both marvelous musicianship and a phenomenal pop prowess.
