Europe have revealed details of their 10th studio LP.

War Of Kings will be released on the 6th of March via UDR Records.

Says frontman Joey Tempest of the new album: “War Of Kings is the album we wanted to make ever since we were kids, listening to bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.
