Support on the tour will come from the Devin Townsend Project, with death metallers Obscura and Septic Flesh joining up as openers. Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho had the following to say about the upcoming tour: "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... Get ready to throw it down!"
