The North American leg of Children of Bodom's "Ugly World Tour" will kick off in Los Angeles on June 24 and run through July 24 in Montreal where COB will perform alongside KISS, Motörhead and more as part of the "Heavy MTL" hard rock festival.

"We are psyched to see all of our friends in North America and to play our new songs live for all of the Bodom maniacs," commented COB guitarist/vocalist Alexi "Wildchild" Laiho. "Get ready to throw it down!" Support on the Children of Bodom tour will come from Devin Townsend, with openers Obscura and Septic Flesh rotating positions each night.

Recorded in Finland with famed rock producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet), Relentless Reckless Forever is the seventh studio album of Children of Bodom's illustrious career. COB's high-energy hooks and electric energy forge stadium-sized heavy metal anthems that seethe with both marvelous musicianship and a phenomenal pop prowess. The first single and video from the album is the "party song" "Was It Worth It?" The "Was It Worth It?" video was filmed on location at Pennsylvania's Action Sports compound Camp Woodward and sees COB join forces with two-time X Games gold medalist and two-time Thrasher magazine "Skater of the Year" Chris Cole and noted pro skaters Jamie Thomas, Garrett Hill and Tom Asta to deliver a one-of-a-kind "audio and visual experience" that perfectly captures the band's live intensity. Check out "Was It Worth It?" below.
