CHILDREN OF BODOM Begins Writing New Material

March 24, 2007

CHILDREN OF BODOM bassist Henkka Seppälä has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Alexi [Laiho; guitar/vocals] is back in business [after tripping at a bowling alley and hurting his shoulder, preventing him from playing guitar for six weeks]. His shoulder should be OK, not perfect never again, but so that it shouldn't affect his playing anyway. So he is very very, very relieved! And we have have started to put some tunes together now...And we have something already done...

"It's exciting to do something new again after a couple of years touring! Recording will happen somewhere, after summer! So we will do those festivals in between songwriting sessions!"

CHILDREN OF BODOM's "Chaos Ridden Years - Stockholm Knockout Live" DVD was recently certified gold in Canada. The disc, which debuted at No. 20 on the Canadian chart (the band's highest-ever chart position in Canada),mainly focuses on the February 5, 2006 live concert in Stockholm, Sweden, featuring over 90 minutes of live excitement. Finalizing the material on this super-packed DVD are two interviews/documentary-type films about the band's past, present and future directed by Yka Jarvinen (Indie Films OY),a "making of the DVD," and photo gallery.
