According to a posting on the CHILDREN OF BODOM fan site Scythes-Of-Bodom.com, a limited Japanese deluxe CD+DVD edition of CHILDREN OF BODOM's "Are You Dead Yet?" album is scheduled to be released in Japan on January 25. The content of the package is still a bit unclear, but at least the two cover songs "Talk Dirty To Me" (POISON) and "Oops I Did It Again!" (BRITNEY SPEARS) will be featured on the release. The DVD will have the making of "Are You Dead Yet?" plus a "fooling around" video called "COBHC - All Night Long", which was previously scheduled to be released on the Japanese special edition of "Are You Dead Yet?". It is rumored that this CD will also contain three live songs recorded on the band's last tour of Japan in October and that the DVD will contain the "making of" videos of "Trashed, Lost & Strungout" and "Sixpounder". However, this has not yet been confirmed.
CHILDREN OF BODOM have just launched a North American headlining trek with TRIVIUM and AMON AMARTH. The group's mainman Alexi Laiho also told MTV.com that the group hope to spend next summer as part of Ozzfest 2006.
As previously reported, CHILDREN OF BODOM will be releasing a DVD-single of "In Your Face" on November 23 via Spinefarm Records. It will feature the video of the title track and two bonus clips.
CHILDREN OF BODOM's latest album, "Are You Dead Yet?", was released in the U.S. on October 25 via Spinefarm Records. The album has been declared to be one of the first priority UMG international releases through Universal's Fontana Distribution system. The U.S. version includes a previously unreleased bonus track that is exclusive to the U.S. release — a cover of the RAMONES classic "Somebody Put Something In My Drink".
CHILDREN OF BODOM's fifth album, "Are You Dead Yet?" is the follow-up to 2003's "Hate Crew Deathroll", which has sold in excess of 200,000 copies worldwide.
