Children Of Bodom have recruited Janne Wirman’s brother, Antti Wirman (Warmen) for their upcoming live shows. Antti will be taking over for Roope Latvala, who recently exited the band.
UPDATE: The band have since commented on Antti’s addition:
“Antti Wirman (Warmen, No Mans Land) made his live debut with the band on Saturday, when COB played a private show in Helsinki.
“We wanted to go with someone close to the band we can count on and who can nail these songs. Antti was the obvious choice”, says Antti‘s older brother Janne Wirman. The band will continue with Antti at least until the Kuopiorock festival on August 1st. What happens after that remains still open.”
