Európa Kiadó are one of the key bands of the 1980s Hungarian underground, as well as great survivors who have been able to remain current in each of the intervening decades with fresh songs and albums and a continuously evolving sound. Led by Jenő Menyhárt, the quartet is kicking off the new decade with a brand-new album this autumn: Love2020 consists partly of reworkings of their own numbers and partly of new compositions. The band's guest at the release concert for this record that proclaims continuity even with its title will be Mihály Víg, who has also been an established associate of the ensemble's since the early '80s.

Európa Kiadó, led by guitarist/singer Jenő Menyhárt, are one of the outstanding bands of Hungarian pop music history. Ever since they formed in the 1980s, they have been keeping themselves fresh through constant transformation, and are almost unique among their contemporaries not only by remaining an active line-up to this day, but also by refusing to live off of their own myth and instead constantly seeking and finding new and relevant things to say. The title of their first album - Love '82 - has been a recurring motif in their ouevre, appearing again in their '90s album Itt kísértünk - Love '92 and now in the 21st century once more as Love2020. On this full-length album slated for release in the autumn, the band, in addition to presenting new compositions, will also reinterpret some previous ones from both the recent past and the early '80s, in collaboration with the experimental vocal ensemble Soharóza, led by Dóra Halas. The band's guest at the record release concert will be Mihály Víg, who is part of many shared stories with Menyhárt, starting from almost the very beginning. Leader of the group Balaton and composer of the music used in the films of Béla Tarr, Víg played alongside Menyhárt in Trabant, and there was a time when the musicians of EK also made up a good part of the membership of Balaton, not to mention the fact that they have released live concert recordings together - now, they'll get to see each other on the stage once again.
