Dzelzs Vilks releases new album

After a three-year break, rock group Dzelzs Vilks has released a new album, Sārtā rītausma, featuring nine new songs. The group now begins a tour around Latvia to promote the record.

The release coincides with the group’s 16th anniversary. Dzelzs Vilks includes lead singer Juris Kaukulis, Armands Butkevičs on bass, Mārcis Judzis on drums and Kaspars Tobis on programming.

The group plays in the industrial metal style, but also has branched out into other genres, doing work for the theater and, in 2005, releasing an album of modern folk songs, Kur vakara zvaigzne lec.

Sārtā rītausma was released by Upe Tuviem un Tāliem, which has released several other of Dzelzs Vilks’ six albums.
