After four more dates covering Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, and Edinburgh in UK, then it’s off to Holland, France (Paris and Bordeaux), Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, and Bilbao), Turkey (Istanbul) and, finally, Tel Aviv in Israel. There are still some tickets available for most of these shows outside of UK so reserve yours now to see the Aristocrats in action if you are anywhere near these regions of Europe and Asia Minor. With all the demand for the Aristocrats worldwide, it may be a while before you get a chance to see this band again in your country.

The Aristocrats team is also pleased to announce a US Midwest tour starting in mid-May that will be capped off by two live shows at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro, CA near Los Angeles on June 2 and 3. The two Alvas shows will be videotaped for a future live concert DVD, so Aristocrats fans in Southern California who want to be part of a little history in the making will definitely not want to miss one of these shows. Having toured together for nearly a year, the Aristocrats will be on top of their game for this video shoot at the cozy and pristine-sounding environment of Alvas Showroom.

1st single with radio this week!

earMUSIC, rock leg of the Hamburg, Germany, based full entertainment company Edel, is thrilled to announce the new album of THE Swedish rock supergroup, EUROPE. The long player, set for UK release on Monday 30th April 2012, is entitled Bag of Bones.
The new record was produced by one of the world's most prestigious producers, Kevin Shirley. No stranger to the crème de la crème of iconic rock, Shirley has produced albums for Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa, Black Country Communion, Black Stone Cherry and Journey. Bag of Bones features 11 brand new tracks, including the first single, Not Supposed To Sing The Blues, which will be serviced to radio this Friday, March 2nd and will be released digitally March 9th.

The band recently unveiled the album artwork and now is ready to confirm the track listing of the new album, which is said to be a milestone in Sweden's biggest hard rock band’s long lasting career. Prior to the recordings, when EUROPE front man Joey Tempest confessed, "We're ready to do some serious damage,” - he could not have been anymore correct. Bag of Bones was already titled "one hell of a record" and is the successor of EUROPE's 2009 album Last Look at Eden, which proved to be the band's most important record since The Final Countdown.

Says singer Joey Tempest: "Finally we express ourselves completely without restraint. Straight from heart and soul. It took some time but WE HAVE ARRIVED!"

Contributing slide guitar to the title track Bag of Bones is no one less but currently hottest blues rock name, Joe Bonamassa. "We're honored that Joe Bonamassa wanted to play some slide guitar on our record. We're all big fans of his music", Tempest points out.

The album, which features a more straightforward rock approach including the track Doghouse, already performed during the band's most recent European tour, is going to be available in a standard CD version as well as on classy vinyl.

Album Track Listing:
1. Riches To Rags
2. Not Supposed To Sing The Blues
3. Firebox
4. Bag Of Bones
5. Requiem
6. My Woman My Friend
7. Demon Head
8. Drink And A Smile
9. Doghouse
10. Mercy You Mercy Me
11. Bring It All Home

EUROPE drummer Ian Haugland sums up the taste of the new album - "If Bag of Bones was a dinner menu at a restaurant, it would get 5 stars in the Michelin guide. We are ready to take your orders!”

EUROPE are also embedded into the European Handball Federation's (EHF) Champions League finals in 2012. Part of the EHF & EUROPE Campaign will be a band performance during the "Final4 tournament" award ceremonies on May 27th in Cologne, Germany.

Having confirmed some first festival appearances across Europe over the summer, the Scandinavians are also set to hit worldwide stages with extended touring fall and onwards.
