Children of Bodom announced today that they are forced to drop off the Tuska Open Air festival in Helsinki, Finland (set to take place June 28-30, 2013) and the reasoning they gave is due to a big US summer tour. Here's their full explanation:

"We've been waiting to play Tuska for some years now. It is our home festival after all. Unfortunately, this year we have to sacrifice a couple of festivals in Europe in order to be able to be part of a big tour in USA. These are not easy nor nice decisions. We only can hope we can do Tuska in the near future again.

"Please stay tuned for our schedules for summer 2013. Fortunately, we are able to play shows in Europe as well. Looking forward!"

This begs the question, what tour did they have to cancel for? Of all the major summer tours, the one that makes most sense to me for this band to be on is the Summer Slaughter tour. But, I wouldn't rule out an appearance on Mayhem Fest either.

What about you guys, what do you think? What major US summer tour will Children of Bodom be on in 2013?
