Published Jul 13, 2009A few days ago, Exclaim! taunted your metallic taste buds by telling you that Finnish black metal students Children of Bodom had come up with a new release: an album of cover tunes.
That hasn't dropped yet because the band are still actually finishing dates in support of their latest wildly successful effort, Blooddrunk. Once it does though, boy is the world in for a treat, huh?
Well, we're so excited about it that our Aggressive Tendencies section has begged, borrowed and stolen a way onto the tour. Well, actually we're forking over money, or something that they consider to be of merit, as we're now proud sponsors of the Blooddrunk Tour, which features wonderful support acts the Black Dahlia Murder and Skeletonwitch.
Therefore, you should be chomping at the bit to hear this next tidbit. In August, this very website you're so enamoured with will be running a contest in conjunction with the tour. That's right, kiddies, play your cards, or click your mouse, right and you could be the recipient of some great Children of Bodom swag, tickets to shows and more.
Notice how people always say "more" but you never really know what the "more" is? Well, keep checking and you'll find out.
Here are the Canadian dates for the Blooddrunk Tour:
9/22 Quebec City, QC - Captiole Theatre
9/23 Montreal, QC - Metropolis
