Children of Bodom Plan to Begin Writing New Album This Fall
Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho recently revealed in an interview that the band will start writing music for a new album in the fall.
Laiho broke down Bodom’s plans for 2012 in an interview with MusikUniverse.net. After completing their current North American tour with Eluveitie, Revocation and Threat Signal, Bodom will be rocking various summer metal fests in Europe. When the touring ends, the band will once again enter the studio to record their follow-up to 2011’s ‘Relentless Reckless Forever.’
“It’s time for us to start writing new music,” says Laiho. “I’m really anxious to get to that as soon as possible. This fall we’re gonna start writing new s–t.”
Laiho continued, “I have ideas, but I haven’t done anything about it, ’cause the thing is, I can’t write when I’m touring; it’s not the right kind of environment for me. I know a lot of people do it, but I just can’t. And it’s OK, ’cause I build a lot of ideas in my head, and my memory sucks, but one thing that I never forget is the riffs; they’re always in my head somehow. So it’s really not a problem.”
