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.
Watch the music video for the title track “War of Kings”, directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company (In Flames, At The Gates, Arch Enemy), here:
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.
