Swedish rock legends Europe will release their 9th studio album, Bag Of Bones, next month in the UK. Due to hit on April 30, 2012 (April 27 for the rest of Europe), the hard rock band most famous for 1986 hit “The Final Countdown” will release its newest album since 2009’s Last Look At Eden.

Featuring 11 new tracks, Bag Of Bones is produced by the man very much in demand: Kevin Shirley who has worked with everyone from Journey to Aerosmith to Rocket From The Crypt. Recently he brought supergroup Black Country Communion (featuring Glenn Hughes) to life.

The band’s new single, “Not Supposed To Sing The Blues,” is available now to download and you can watch the video at their official site official site. It tells the story of a kid discovering rock music in the ’70s. A heavily bluesy hard rock tune featuring superb guitar work by long-time guitarist John Norum and Joey Tempest’s unmistakeable vocals.

Europe will take the new album on the road later this year and begin a 9-date UK tour on November 21 at the Birmingham 02 Academy. See below for further information on venues and dates.

If you’re in the U.S., you can now pre-order the CD, which will be released in the U.S. as an import on May 8.

The [final] Countdown begins…
