ELUVEITIE has joined CHILDREN OF BODOM on the Finnish metallers’ North American headlining tour in celebration of the band’s 15th anniversary. The trek kicked off on January 30 in Rochester, New York and will run through March 4, hitting 26 cities over the course of the five-week jaunt. Boston-based extreme metal band REVOCATION and Canada’s THREAT SIGNAL are also on the bill.
