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.
