Hypocrisy Tap Children Of Bodom Frontman For Tour


Hypocrisy have tapped Children Of Bodom vocalist/guitarist Alexi Laiho to handle the guitar duties for them on their upcoming North America tour with Ensiferum, Ex Deo, Blackguard and Swashbuckle. Speaking on Laiho‘s temporary addition to their line-up, Hypocrisy frontman Peter Tagtgren had the following to say:

“We’re very happy to bring Alexi along on this tour and that he’s helping us out with filling the 2nd guitarist position. Funny, the first CHILDREN OF BODOM show was a support gig for HYPOCRISY on the Nuclear Blast festival in ’98. Since then me and Alexi have become very good friends.

I’ve helped him with producing and he’s helped me by contributing a guitar solo on one of my records with my other band PAIN. There will be no shortage of alcohol on this tour that’s for sure.”
