UPDATE, 2:13pm: A representative from Children of Bodom tells us that Hypocrisy are not going to be a part of this tour. Major bummer!

Original Post:

Just when you thought the fall touring season was winding down… hey, get ready for winter touring season! No time off for you and your busy schedule of attending shows — so many bands, too little time. Maybe you’ll have a quick respite during the most wintry months of December and January when only bands that are looking to wreck their vans on icy patches of road in the Midwest would do a silly thing like tour the U.S., maybe then you’ll finally get some sleep. But nope, probably not, life’s too short to stay home.

And so: Children Of Bodom, Hypocrisy and Tyr will hit the road on the “Halo Of Blood Over North America Tour” in early 2014. The real excitement here for me is Hypocrisy, who somehow I’ve never seen live; either they only play Long Island, I’ve had some other commitment the night of their NYC stop or they cancel the tour each time they’ve been through in the past several years. So maybe this is my shot? Peter Tägtgren for the win, y’all.
