Children of Bodom Announce North American Tour with Accept + Exmortus

Finnish melodic death metallers Children of Bodom announced today that they will be continuing their hard-touring ways in support of 2015’s I Worship Chaos, with the release of North American tour dates that will also feature Accept and Exmortus. That’s quite the lineup, which also includes Oni. The tour kicks off in Quebec City on November 23rd and moves through the western and midwest states before barreling into the Northeast, where it ends with two NYC dates, first at Irving Plaza on December 18th and then closing night takes place right here in Brooklyn at The Warsaw the next night. That’s an odd place to end a tour, and it’s also going to be crazy as hell to have Bodom playing in that venue. I’ve been to a Children of Bodom show when they were on Megadeth’s Gigantour way back in 2008 at Hammerstein Ballroom, where they stole the show as the unquestioned best performance of the night.

Nonetheless, they’ll be on tour and finishing up at Warsaw. We’ll be looking into the Irving Plaza show, because quite frankly I need a barricade if I’m going to cover a Bodom show. Tickets are on sale through BLABBERMOUTH of all places from August 24-25, and will go on sale to the general public this Friday, August 26th. Check out the tour dates below:
