Reunited Swedish hard rockers EUROPE have posted the following message on their official web site:
"We have now started the recording of our forthcoming album (yet untitled!) and we're well on our way with recording the basic tracks. Everything is working and sounding fu**ing great... except for the bass amp that blew up and almost caught fire!
"As we told you before, this time we're producing the album ourself, and it feels real good to be totally in charge. The recording engineer is none other than the legendary Lennart Östlund, who's famous for his work with LED ZEPPELIN, SCORPIONS, GENESIS... to name but a few!"

As previously reported, EUROPE's acoustic version of "Yesterday's News", recorded during an appearance on the Stockholm, Sweden radio station 106.7 Rockklassiker on December 7, 2005, has been made available for download at this location.
EUROPE entered the Swedish Music DVD chart at position No. 9 in December 2005 with their live DVD, entitled "Live from the Dark". The two-disc set features the group's November 15, 2004 concert at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, England along with video clips, interviews, band information and a section called "Taxi Diaries."
The group's first collection of new material since 1991's "Prisoners In Paradise", "Start from the Dark" (2004) was produced by Kevin Elson, who had previously worked with EUROPE on their multi-platinum 1986 release, "Final Countdown".
