"The Siege" described by singer Joey Tempest as a "snapshot" of a battle during The French Revolution, from an album that in part is lyrically exploring the rise and possible fall of western democracy and features collaboration with Joey’s old friend Chris Difford (from the band Squeeze) on the lyric.
The Video is directed by Europe’s long-time collaborator Patric Ullaeus (In Flames, Arch Enemy).
Praised by critics around the globe since its release, “Walk The Earth” has easily cemented its reputation as a rock music masterpiece.

“…the new EUROPE album slays. (9 out of 10)” - Outburn
“Retro and Reinvigorated” 4/5 - Total Guitar Magazine
From the anthemic sound of the opening track “Walk The Earth” – to the heavy vibe that is “Haze”, from the instant melody of “Election Day” to the lyrical content of “Kingdom United”, “Walk The Earth” is the album that sees Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record. This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album “War Of Kings”, “Walk The Earth” is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover its depth.
Since forming in 1979 Europe have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The bands all conquering “The Final Countdown” album has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was No 1 in 25 countries.
