The new record was produced by one of the world’s most prestigious producers, Kevin Shirley. No stranger to the crème de la crème of iconic rock, Shirley has produced albums for Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa, Black Country Communion, Black Stone Cherry and JourneyBag of Bones features 11 brand new tracks, including the first single, Not Supposed To Sing The Blues, which was released digitally on  March 9th.
The band recently unveiled the album artwork and now is ready to confirm the track listing of the new album, which is said to be a milestone in Sweden’s biggest hard rock band’s long lasting career.  Prior to the recordings, when EUROPE front man Joey Tempest confessed, “We’re ready to do some serious damage,” – he could not have been anymore correct.  Bag of Bones was already titled “one hell of a record” and is the successor of EUROPE‘s 2009 album Last Look at Eden, which proved to be the band’s most important record since The Final Countdown.

Says singer Joey Tempest: “Finally we express ourselves completely without restraint. Straight from heart and soul. It took some time but WE HAVE ARRIVED!”

Contributing slide guitar to the title track Bag of Bones is no one less but currently hottest blues rock name, Joe Bonamassa. “We’re honored that Joe Bonamassa wanted to play some slide guitar on our record. We’re all big fans of his music”, Tempest points out.
The album, which features a more straightforward rock approach including the track Doghouse, already performed during the band’s most recent European tour, is going to be available in a standard CD version as well as on classy vinyl.
