Last week, rock legends EUROPE kicked off their first U.S. tour in 10 years (see below for dates). In celebration of the tour, the band is unleashing their brand new music video for “Days of Rock N’ Roll” with REVOLVER Magazine. Take a look here: www.revolvermag.com/news/europe-premiere-new-music-video-days-of-rock-n-roll.html
EUROPE vocalist Joey Tempest states, “We simply wanted to make a live video like we used to, uplifting and entertaining and really capture a band and its audience at a peak! The video was shot in Manchester and Wolverhampton on our latest UK tour. We used our friend and video director extraordinaire, Patric Ulaeus, who has done our five latest videos. The song is about the rise and fall… and rise of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

EUROPE’s 10th studio album War of Kings is out now! War of Kings is available for purchase in CD digipak, CD jewel case, vinyl LP or digital download format. ORDER HERE via Amazon. The album marks EUROPE’s advancement towards a refreshed heavy rock style while building upon their internationally-celebrated, high-energy and unforgettable trademark sound.
Recorded at the brand new PanGaia Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, produced by Dave Cobb (Rival Sons) and engineered by John Netti, War of Kings sees the quintet confidently creating 11 monstrously melodic, yet hard-hitting classic rock’n’roll standouts for their fervent global audience.
EUROPE’s place as a legendary classic rock band was platinum-stamped early in their career, having enjoyed an explosive period of worldwide success in the ‘80s, under-pinned by their hit album and single The Final Countdown, before going on hiatus between 1992 and 2003. They reunited and quickly settled into a period of re-establishment which has seen them re-enforce their reputation worldwide as one of the premier purveyors of blues-tinged classic rock with an edge and some kick. Their last album, 2012’s Bag of Bones, saw EUROPE hit the UK top 40 rock album charts and debut at #2 on the Swedish national charts.
