Europe will release their new studio album, 'Walk The Earth', on 20th October 2017 via Hell & Back Recordings (Silver Lining Music).

'Walk The Earth' will feature original artwork by famed Los Angeles artist Mike Sportes of Filth Mart.

Joey Tempest told us about the appointment of Sportes:

"We were in the studio a few days into recording and Dave [Cobb, Producer] comes in wearing this very cool t-shirt with one of Mike's designs on it. Immediately we knew we had to check Mike's other work and have him come up with an exclusive design for us based on the vibe of the album.

"We are very proud to have his amazing artwork as the 'Walk The Earth' album cover."

'Walk The Earth' tracklisting:
1. Walk The Earth
2. The Siege
3. Kingdom United
4. Pictures
5. Election Day
6. Wolves
7. GTO
8. Haze
9. Whenever You're Ready
10. Turn To Dust

The album was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

Late 2016 saw Europe perform a series of 'The Final Countdown Anniversary Shows' across Europe, culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London which has been immortalised in a July 2017 DVD release 'The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show - Live At The Roundhouse'.

Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of Europe's last album, 2015s 'War Of Kings', a release which re-established Europe as one of the top rock bands in the world.

Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over twenty-five million albums and toured across the world. Their all conquering 'The Final Countdown' album has alone sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was number one in twenty-five countries.
