Children Of Bodom have released a video for their new track Platitudes And Barren Words.
It’s the latest song to be chosen from the band’s upcoming studio album Hexed, which will launch next Friday (March 8) via Nuclear Blast.
Vocalist and guitarist Alexi Laiho says of Platitudes And Barren Words: “This one has been a lot of people’s favourite song since day one and when you think about it, every single part of it is catchy as hell so it makes sense. Can’t wait to play it live.”
Speaking previously about the new record, Laiho said: “People have said that this album is generally catchier. So I started thinking about that, perhaps the song structures are easier to grasp on initial listen. But there’s some crazy shit in there – almost progressive or at least technical.
“There are certain melodies across the album that could have come from jazz songs, although they’re completely metal with us, of course!”
