New studio album from Deep Purple
"InFinite definitely won't disappoint fans of classic Purple. It's a feast of wanton organ and quasi-classical keyboard curlicues, bolstering bass from Roger Glover and percussive surges courtesy of Paice. Gillan, meanwhile, is in grand over-the-top form, trying a little too hard, perhaps, to keep up with the heavy metal kids, effing and blinding throughout. ... It's colourful and inadvertently comical stuff, but there's no denying that the music is worth taking seriously, from the rampaging opener 'Time For Bedlam' and exotically textured 'The Surprising' to the Zep-ish 'Hip Boots' and 'Birds Of Prey.' The album closes with a perfunctory cover of 'Roadhouse Blues,' but InFinite works best when Purple do what they do best: extrapolate and alchemise the blues, and take it to new progressive heights." — TeamRock.com, February 2017
British rock legends Deep Purple return with a new studio album InFinite on 2LP + DVD. InFinite was tracked in February 2016 at a studio in Nashville, and was once again helmed by Bob Ezrin, who has previously worked with Kiss, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Alice Cooper and Kansas, among others.
Speaking to Vintage Rock at the Hall Of Heavy Metal History induction ceremony at the Anaheim Expo Center in Anaheim, California, Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey stated about the band's new disc: "It's a little heavier than the last one. It's a bit more prog, as we say in England. I think it's gonna surprise a lot of people. It surprised me when I heard it. [Laughs] I mean, it really did."
Deep Purple recently announced their "Long Goodbye Tour," which will bring the legendary live show once again all over the world. The band has not yet answered the many questions received by fans from all over the world who are speculating about the meaning of the title "InFinite" and "Long Goodbye."
Asked if the upcoming tour will mark Deep Purple's farewell to the concert stage, Airey said: "Well, we've got two years of touring coming up. Whether there'll be anything beyond that, time will tell. As Bruce Payne, our manager, said, never say never. But we'll just have to see."
Infinite arrives roughly four years after the band's most recent set of new material, Now What?! — a record that cracked the U.K. Top 20 and earned Deep Purple the Comeback of the Year honors at 2014's Revolver Golden God Awards.
