Europe vocalist Joey Tempest believes that 2009’s Last Look At Eden album was a significant turning point for the band. That album proved to be the band’s most important record since The Final Countdown. Now, with the highly anticipated release of Bag of Bones, Tempest says – “Europe is ready to do some serious damage.”
Bag of Bones is produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Stone Cherry, The Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, Black Country Communion) and features JoeBonamassa on the title track.
