earMUSIC is thrilled to announce the new album from Swedish rock supergroup, EUROPE. The long player, set for UK release on Monday 30th April 2012, is entitled Bag of Bones. The first single, Not Supposed To Sing The Blues, will be released digitally on Friday March 9th.
Bag of Bones is produced by Kevin Shirley. No stranger to the crème de la crème of iconic rock, Shirley has produced albums for the likes of Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa, Black Country Communion, Black Stone Cherry and Journey.
Contributing slide guitar to the title track Bag of Bones is blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. “We’re honoured that Joe Bonamassa wanted to play some slide guitar on our record. We’re all big fans of his music”, says Europe front man Joey Tempest. Released on CD and vinyl formats, the album features a more straightforward rock approach.
“Why drive a VW beetle when you can drive a Rolls Royce?” asks Europe’s guitarist John Norum. “Bag of Bones is a classic rock album with lots of class. Even my mom likes it!”
