Europe: Hero Video now online

Europe "Hero" Video now online. Reunited Swedish hard rockers Europe recently filmed a video for "Hero", the second single off their new album, "Start from the Dark". Watch the video clip here.

The group's first collection of new material since 1991's "Prisoners In Paradise", "Start from the Dark" was produced by Kevin Elson (who had previously worked with Europe on their multi-platinum 1986 release, "Final Countdown") and features a "heavier" direction than on the group's earlier albums. A video for the album's first single, "Got to Have Faith", has been posted online here (Windows Media file).

Mic Michaeli Adds "Also, touring has always been a big part for the band and we look forward to some hard work again". Norum says, "Ever since we started there has been something magic about this band..." "The new stuff sounds fresh and hard but still with the typical Europe melodies in focus" says Joey Tempest, "... And extremely organic" John Norum finishes.
