CHILDREN OF BODOM - Cover BRITNEY SPEARS On New Single
CHILDREN OF BODOM have recorded a cover version of BRITNEY SPEARS' "Oops
I Did It Again" for their upcoming single, "In Your Face". The cover artwork
for the single has been posted online at Spinefarm.fi. The single, which
is scheduled for release in Finland on August 17 via Spinefarm, will contain
the following track listing:
01. In Your Face
02. Oops I Did It Again
03. In Your Face (censored version)
A total of two cover songs were recorded during the recording sessions for
the group's new album, "Are You Dead Yet?". The second cover song will be
used as bonus track for the Japanese version of the album.
In other news, a live DVD of the Wacken festival in 2004 will be released
next Monday. CHILDREN OF BODOM will be featured on it with a live version
of their song "Sixpounder", which was already shown on German TV in 2004.
Next Saturday the band will play a secret gig in Berlin, Germany. Attendance
at the concert will be by invite only.
On November 9, 2005, CHILDREN OF BODOM will play a gig in QuÃƒÂ©bec, Canada
with TRIVIUM and AMON AMARTH, presumably as part of a full-fledged North
American tour featuring those three bands.
As previously reported, the cover artwork for CHILDREN OF BODOM's upcoming
album, "Are You Dead Yet?", has been posted online at this location.
CHILDREN OF BODOM mastered "Are You Dead Yet?" on June 6 at Finnvox studios
in Helsinki following a six-week recording/mixing session with producer
Mikko Karmila. The complete track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. Living Dead Beat
02. Are You Dead Yet?
03. If You Want Peace... Prepare for War
04. Punch Me I Bleed
05. In Your Face
06. Next in Line
07. Bastards of Bodom
08. Trashed, Lost & Strungout
09. We're Not Gonna Fall
"Are You Dead Yet?" is scheduled for release on September 14 in Finland
and September 19 in the rest of the world.
CHILDREN OF BODOM mainman Alexi Laiho recently told Finland's Soundi magazine
that "Are You Dead Yet?" will feature some completely new influences. The
follow-up to 2003's "Hate Crew Deathroll" will apparently be even more straight-forward
than its predecessor and will contain some industrial elements while retaining
COB's trademark sound, including the super-fast guitar and keyboard solos.
