Children Of Bodom to release new single

Children Of Bodom, fresh from completing a run of seven headline shows in the UK & Ireland as part of their current ‘Ugly World Tour’, have been confirmed to play at Download 2011; they will appear on the 2nd Stage on Friday, June 10th.

The five – led into action by guitar star Alexi Laiho – will be supporting this one-off UK festival showing with a brand new single, the third to be drawn from their new, highly acclaimed ‘Relentless, Reckless Forever’ album (their seventh to date), which has already sold well in excess of 100,000 copies worldwide and has been certified gold in their home country of Finland.

The single in question is ‘Shovel Knockout’, and it will be available – via Spinefarm – both as a limited edition coloured vinyl 7” plus a digital download; the bonus material will be drawn from COB keyboard player Janne Warman’s solo recordings, some of which feature Alexi (voted ‘Best Metal Guitarist’ by the readers of Guitar World) as special guest.

In addition to the dextrous Warman / Laiho pairing, the COB line-up is completed by Roope Latvala (guitar), Jaska Raatikainen (drums) & Henkka Blacksmith (bass).
