WARMEN's cover version of the ROXETTE song "Fading Like A Flower" is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track, which features a guest appearance by the Finnish pop/rock queen Jonna Kosonen, was included as the bonus cut on the Japanese version of the Finnish group's fourth album, "Japanese Hospitality".
WARMEN is the brainchild of CHILDREN OF BODOM keyboardist Janne Wirman.
"Japanese Hospitality" entered the Finnish chart at position No. 36. The CD was released via Spinefarm Records. The 10-song effort includes two cover versions — "Separate Ways", originally recorded by JOURNEY, and "Black Cat" by JANET JACKSON, featuring a guest appearance by Kosonen. Other guest musicians that appear on the CD include Alexi Laiho (CHILDREN OF BODOM), Pasi Rantanen (ex-THUNDERSTONE), Timo Kotipelto (STRATOVARIUS) and Marko Vaara.

WARMEN's third full-length album, "Accept the Fact", was released in July 2005 via Spinefarm Records.
Kosonen, who was previously a member of the multiplatinum-selling Finnish female pop duo NYLON BEAT, had contributed her vocals to CHILDREN OF BODOM's cover version of the BRITNEY SPEARS smash "Oops, I Did It Again" (which appeared on the "In Your Face" single), and was also one of the guest musicians on "Accept the Fact".
