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'.

Check out the trailers here:





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.

Europe tour with Deep Purple in late 2017 and here's all the dates:
Friday 17th November: Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham
Saturday 18th November: Manchester Arena, Manchester
Monday 20th November: Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
Wednesday 22nd November: The SSE Hydro, Glasgow

Tickets are on sale now right here.

European Tour Dates for November and December to announced imminently.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
