Finnish metallers CHILDREN OF BODOM are celebrating their 15th Anniversary U.S. Tour by launching their very own interactive fan club via Mobile Backstage on smartphones, Facebook and the Web to connect with their most loyal fans, the Children Of Bodom Hate Crew.

Mobile Backstage was an obvious choice for us,” said the band in a statement. “It’s a combination of mobile and Facebook apps and a web interface that create a digital fan club and allow us to reach all our fans no matter where they are. We’re very excited about this opportunity to share some exclusive behind-the-scenes material and stay in touch with the Hate Crew during our 15th Anniversary U.S. Tour.”

“We’re very excited to bring Mobile Backstage to CHILDREN OF BODOM,” said Paavo Bäckman, the CEO of Mobile Backstage. “Mobile Backstage is a 21st century fan club that integrates web and mobile fan communities and helps bands connect with their fans no matter where they are.”

With Mobile Backstage, CHILDREN OF BODOM and their fans can exchange news, pictures, videos, audio clips and messages in an intimate and personal environment, far from the noise and clutter of other social media. Fans can send messages to other fans, find and check into gigs, see the location of other fans and their online posts, play music, and purchase tracks and tickets.

Catch CHILDREN OF BODOM North American tour, starting on January 28 from Charlotte, North Carolina, running all the way through to Baltimore, Maryland for the last show on March 4.
