Children of Bodom Announce 2014 North American Tour With Týr
Heads up! We've got all the info for one of the biggest North American tours scheduled for 2014. Finnish metal heroes Children of Bodom are set to invade North America once again next year, bringing folk metal band Týr along with them, along with more special guests yet to be announced.
Children of Bodom will be touring off the release of 'Halo of Blood,' which is arguably the band's best effort since 'Hate Crew Deathroll' hit fans in 2003. We gave the album four stars in our own review, so we can't wait to hear some new 'Halo of Blood' material live! Týr have also made some waves this year, having unveiled their seventh full-length, 'Valkyrja,' earlier this year. There are rumors floating around that death metal veterans Hypocrisy will be a part of the tour, but their inclusion has neither been confirmed nor denied as of this posting.
In an extra special treat for Bodom fans in New York City, the band will be performing two nights in a row (March 28 - 29) at Irving Plaza. The band will be performing a different set each night, so NYC fans may get some unexpected surprises from the Finnish act.
Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho recently stopped by our studio for an interview to speak about 'Halo of Blood.' "From my point of view, I really think that it's more melodic, and when I say melodic, I mean more catchy," says Laiho. "Catchy melodies, not like progressive melodies which we may have had on previous albums."
