Europe have revealed details of their new album which will be titled Walk The Earth.

The follow-up to 2015’s War Of Kings will be released on October 20 via Hell & Back Recordings/Silver Lining Music, with the Walk The Earth cover art created by Los Angeles artist Mike Sportes of Filth Mart.

Europe frontman Joey Tempest explains: “We were in the studio a few days into recording and producer Dave Cobb 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!”

Earlier this month, Europe released the live package The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show – Live at the Roundhouse to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their landmark album.

Europe have also been confirmed as Deep Purple’s support for their upcoming UK arena tour.
