Europe expand War Of Kings

Europe have announced they’ll release an expanded edition of their War Of Kings album.

The original launched in March this year and the repacked version will appear on December 4.

The Special Edition will contain the original 10th album, along with a film of their live set from this year’s Wacken festival in Germany.

It’ll be issued digitally, on CD/DVD, CD/Blu-ray and a limited-edition Deluxe Package on CD/DVD/Blu-ray. The latter will be bundled with a photobook, with pre-orders starting from October 21.

In addition, the band will head out on a 16-date road trip across the US starting in January.

Frontman Joey Tempest says: “It’s so great to soon be back in the USA after our very successful east coast shows earlier this year – covering a lot more States this time. The War of Kings tour continues.”

Tickets for the dates go on general sale on Friday (October 23) at 12noon ET via Europe’s official website.
