Children Of Bodom have announced a North American tour which will take place this winter.

The Finnish band will hit the road with Abbath, Exmortus and Oni in November and December, with the dates set up following Alexi Laiho and co’s 2015 album I Worship Chaos.

Former Immortal frontman Abbath will also be promoting his self-titled 2016 debut record on the trek. The album has courted controversy, as his former bandmates accused him of stealing songs they had written for the follow-up to 2014’s All Shall Fall.

Laiho tells Blabbermouth: “We’re happy to have finally put something cool together for our upcoming US headline tour with Oni, Exmortus and the one and only Abbath – so I’d say this tour is more than worth checking out. We hope to see you there.”

Children Of Bodom recruited Naildown frontman and guitarist Daniel Freyberg earlier this year in a touring role following the departure of guitarist Roope Latvala last spring.
