Children Of Bodom Have “Almost Half” Of New Album Written

Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka Seppälä recently chatted with The Salt Lake Tribune and revealed that the band have “almost half” of their new album written. If all goes according to plan, the effort should be released late next year.

Seppälä said the following:

“We’ve been already writing the whole fall, actually. We have almost half the new album. So we’ll go back and do some more new songs. And then, in the spring, we’re gonna start laying the tracks.”

He also added the following when asked about its musical direction:

“I don’t know. It’s always hard. For me, for some reason, I’m incapable of describing any direction that we go. There’s always something new, and it’s always somehow refreshing to me to do the new songs. I’m very, very excited. Very, very excited.”

Children Of Bodom Announce North American 20th Anniversary Tour With Carach Angren, Lost Society, & Uncured

Children Of Bodom have announced a North America leg of their “20 Years Down And Dirty” tour. Carach Angren, Lost Society, and Uncured will serve as support for this run.

Alexi Laiho commented:

“So my friends, after rolling thru Europe doing the 20th year anniversary tour, we were honestly pretty bummed out to find out that we wouldn’t have enough time to bring the tour to America since it was absolutely a blast for both the crowd and the band. But now I’m stoked to announce that as it turns out, we indeed will be able to do this on the other side of the pond so I’m over the top happy about that!!

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 2nd & 3rd 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!”

Ex-Children of Bodom Guitarist Roope Latvala Says He Felt “Stabbed In The Back” By His Former Bandmates

Former Children Of Bodom guitarist Roope Latvala recently opened up about his exit from the band during a new interview with YLE. During the chat, Latvala said he “really feel(s) stabbed in the back by those guys,” and that he has “been bitter” towards them after getting “fired without an explanation.” He also added that he felt that “Children Of Bodom’s success had gone to” Alexi Laiho’s head and that Laiho started to “look down on” him. After getting fired Latvala suffered from depression and “started to focus on drinking.” He “couldn’t [even] touch [his] guitars,” and he felt “as if it was forbidden for [him] to play guitar.” Despite this, the article goes on to say that Roope has pulled out “a couple of Les Pauls” and is beginning to work on new music.
