The video clip was produced by Patrick Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company and shot this January at Sibelius House in Lahti, Finland.  No wolves, small children, or magic mirrors  were harmed in the making of this video.


‘The Wolves Die Young’ was pretty much born to be a single,” states SONATA ARCTICA frontman & lyricist  Tony Kakko. “And it is. It also paved the road for the rest of the album. Set a mood in a way. It just felt real good to start with. 2014 is a year of a wolf.”


“The Wolves Die Young” comes from SONATA’s eighth studio album Pariah’s Child, which will be released in North America on April 1st.

Recorded and produced by SONATA ARCTICA at Studio 57 in Alaveteli, Finland, Pariah’s Child was mixed by Pasi Kauppinen – the band’s new bass player.  Track listing for the album is:

01. The Wolves Die Young

02. Running Lights

03. Take One Breath

04. Cloud Factory

05. Blood

06. What Did You Do In The War, Dad?

07. Half A Marathon Man

08. X Marks The Spot

09. Love

10. Larger Than Life
