Children of Bodom is living the high life right now. The band's last four albums were #1 in their home country of Finland, and they just completed a successful North American tour with Eluveitie, Revocation, and Threat Signal. Now, the band is announcing that they have signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records.
"We had a good, long, productive run with Spinefarm Records for fifteen years and now it's simply just time for a change," said Children of Bodom front man / guitarist Alexi Laiho. "I'm absolutely stoked to start the new chapter of COB's career with Nuclear Blast and look forward to working with them."
For those of you who just want a new Children of Bodom album, you're in luck. The Finnish metal band is planning on releasing new material in 2013. If I were a betting man, I'd say you can expect the band on one of the popular North American summer fests too.
"Personally, I am so excited to work with Nuclear Blast again," adds COB bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith. "We have such good memories from the beginning of our career with them. We know the people already and we know how committed they are in doing metal!"
As you just read, this isn't the first time that Children of Bodom has been under the Nuclear Blast banner. The German-based metal label helped put out the first three COB releases. The band then went to Spinefarm Records where they spent the last 15 years. If you thought the band was successful now, wait until you see what happens after Nuclear Blast markets the shit out of them. Who else is ready for more Bodom?
