CHILDREN OF BODOM: Finnish Hate Crew Prepare To Destroy Austin

Finland's CHILDREN OF BODOM have been confirmed to appear at the 17th annual South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW), set to be held Mar. 12-16 in various venues in Austin, Texas. CHILDREN OF BODOM will perform on Friday, March 14 at Back Room (2015 E Riverside). Showtime is set for 12:00 a.m. (midnight). It is presently unclear if the band will perform any additional U.S. dates as part of the jaunt.

CHILDREN OF BODOM spent three weeks at first place in the Finnish Top 40 album chart with their latest album, "Hate Crew Deathroll". The album was tracked at Astia studio in Lappeenranta, Finland and was mastered in early November at Finnvox studios in Helsinki. The group's previous CD, "Follow The Reaper", sold 150,000 copies internationally.
