Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM have scheduled two "off" dates during this year's Gigantour, which kicks off mid-April and runs through the end of May. On April 24, they will appear at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with IN FLAMES and A LIFE ONCE LOST, and on May 5 they will play a headline show at Mr. Smalls in Millvale, Pennsylvania.
CHILDREN OF BODOM's video for the new single "Blooddrunk" can be viewed below. The clip, which was produced by Katapult Filmproduktion, was shot in the former Nazi barracks in Krampnitz in the vicinity of Berlin, Germany, where the Russian army was stationed before the German reunion.
Check out pictures from the video shoot at this location.
Spinefarm Records will release a digipack version of CHILDREN OF BODOM's new album, "Blooddrunk", on April 9. The set will include a bonus DVD featuring the songs mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, the "Blooddrunk" video, a "making-of-the-video" segment, and a photo gallery. In addition, the CD will feature CHILDREN OF BODOM's cover of STAN JONES' "Ghost Riders In The Sky" as a bonus track.
A new CHILDREN OF BODOM song, entitled "Banned From Heaven", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off, "Blooddrunk", which is scheduled for release in North America on April 15 via Spinefarm/Fontana International. The CD is due in Europe on April 7 via Spinefarm Records (two days later in Finland). Check out the album artwork here.
