Europe • 2004 • Start from the Dark

Scandinavias biggest rock band ever reunited in 2004 for a world tour, album and dvd. The band (joey tempest, john norum, mic michaeli, john leven and ian haugland) have long talked about getting back together. Haugland says, "after the first band jam in years it felt so right, like we've just been away for a lunchbreak". 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.
