Finnish metal monarchs Children of Bodom have just announced a month-long headlining tour in support of their new album, 'Relentless Reckless Forever.' The so-called Ugly World Tour will kick off in Los Angeles on June 24 and run through July 24 in Montreal, where COB will perform alongside KISS and Motörhead as part of the Heavy MTL hard rock festival.

"We are psyched to see all of our friends in North America and to play our new songs live for all of the Bodom maniacs," said COB guitarist-vocalist Alexi Laiho. "Get ready to throw it down!"

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), 'Relentless Reckless Forever' entered the Billboard album chart at #41 the week of its release.
