PRESS RELEASE: EUROPE IN AMERICA – DAYS OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL INVADES THE USA.
Fresh from bringing the true spirit of rock ’n’ roll back to the UK in March, superstar Swedish rockers EUROPE come to America for a fresh crusade, with their brand new video for “Days of Rock ’n’ Roll”.
Directed by Patric Ullaeus, (one of Sweden’s most celebrated video directors who has worked with In Flames and Dimmu Borgir among many)
“Days of Rock ’n’ Roll” shows Europe leading sold-out audiences in Manchester & Wolverhampton through approximately 3 minutes and 20 seconds of classic, unadulterated, ear-catching-melodic-memory-sticky rock ’n’ roll songwriting.
“The main riff for “Days of Rock ’n’ Roll” was written back in ’88, and was meant as a follow up to The Final Countdown,” says Tempest. “Last year I finished the song, the band loved it, and we always felt it would be a great song in our live set.”
“Days of Rock ’n’ Roll” is symbolic of the success Europe have been enjoying worldwide with their latest album War Of Kings. With over 20 million albums sold worldwide in their career, it is clear that Europe have become the modern vanguard for classic rock ’n’ roll music.
“The love and effort you put into rock albums and videos are more important than ever!” furthers Tempest.
“It’s not about over producing or simply recreating the past, but going to “that deeper place” and making new, interesting, heartfelt, primal yet soulful music.”
“Classic Rock and hard rock music are built with eternal qualities,” says Tempest, “and it is our duty as artists, songwriters and music lovers, to make sure this music is elevated yet again.”
With Europe continuing to successfully spread the word worldwide, the “Days Of Rock ’n’ Roll” are in strong, safe and dynamic hands.
