Children Of Bodom guitarist to tour w/ Hypocrisy

Official press release: Legendary Swedish death metal horde Hypocrisy have enlisted the help of Children Of Bodom guitarist/frontman Alexi Laiho for their upcoming North American tour. Alexi has agreed to temporarily fill the currently vacant guitarist spot on their tour alongside Ensiferum, Hypocrisy, Ex Deo, Blackguard, and Swashbuckle. Hypocrisy mainman Peter Tägtgren commented: "We're very happy to bring Alexi along on this tour and that he's helping us out with filling the second guitarist position. Funny, the first Children Of Bodom show was a support gig for Hypocrisy on the Nuclear Blast festival in ‘98. Since then me and Alexi have become very good friends. I've helped him with producing and he's helped me by contributing a guitar solo on one of my records with my other band, Pain. There will be no shortage of alcohol on this tour, that's for sure."
