About a year ago, seven men came together to create a new record, which will be released tomorrow - April 25th, 2018. The album was recorded in three different places - Riga, Ikskile and Stockholm, and, as expected, has three versions - Latvian, Russian and English. The authors of all the songs included in the album are the band "Prāta Vētra", Ingars Vilums, as well as the producers of the album - Swedes Povel Olson and David Larson. It is also planned to publish the album in vinyl format.

One of the characteristic advantages of the album is joy: the joy of creating songs, the joy of cooperation, the joy of singing and playing, the joy of being with friends you know from kindergarten.

The design of the album and photographs are by the famous Dutch master Anton Corbin and he is also responsible for the cover artwork.

This summer the band will go on tour in Latvia. Concerts will be held in five cities - Jelgava, Valmiera, Ventspils, Daugavpils and Riga. As special guests in the tour was confirmed by the participants of the young Latvian band "Sudden lights", seen by the general public this year at the "Supernova" contest.

The new album "Par to zēnu, kas sit skārda bungas" is available today from 5 pm only in the information center of "Spice", and starting from tomorrow, April 25, - throughout Latvia and all the streaming platforms.

And only from April 25th to May 1st, purchasing at least three tickets for the summer concert tour of the band "Prāta Vētra", you will receive the new album "Par to zenu, kas sit skārda bungas" as a gift!
