EUROPE – THE MOVIE
Today Europe are very pleased to be sharing the official music video for the song with all their fans worldwide. The video offers a glimpse into the brand-new documentary that the band have been busy filming with producer / director Craig Hooper (Deep Purple / Saxon) for Coolhead Productions simply entitled EUROPE – THE MOVIE. The film will tell the story of the band, from formation until present day, telling of their rise to success in the mid 80s, through hard times and heartache to coming back in the millennium and the current successes the band has achieved. This is set for release in early 2024.
“HOLD YOUR HEAD UP” was recorded last month at the Atlantis Studios in Stockholm with producer Klas Åhlund (Ghost, Robyn), it is a punchy up-tempo rocker with reminiscent elements of early Europe. The song was mixed by Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Def Leppard) who also mixed Europe’s Secret Society album.
“‘HOLD YOUR HEAD UP’ is an up-tempo guitar driven rocker about pulling through in difficult times and the influence my father had on me to always do my best and persevere” offers Joey Tempest, “it’s been six years since our last release Walk The Earth recorded at Abbey Road and we had a great time in the studio with producer Klas Åhlund. He really brought out a hungry, engaged band that’s ready to continue an amazing journey. We can’t wait to play this song on tour and incorporate it on our next album. We’re very proud of this track”
TIME CAPSULE TOUR
Europe are currently undertaking a “Time Capsule” tour which includes 21 concerts across Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, France, The Netherlands and the UK, including two nights at the famous London Palladium. These anniversary shows will consist of a career retrospective “evening with” performance featuring all the hits together with deep cuts and fan favorites from all of their 11 studio albums.
