One of the most influential rock bands of all time, Deep Purple, recently released their brand new studio album InFinite via earMUSIC/Sony Music Australia.
InFinite is the highly anticipated follow up to their most recent worldwide chart topping album 2013’s NOW What?!, The tour that followed sold over a million tickets worldwide. InFinite entered the Top 10 Album Charts in eighteen countries, once again smashing chart records the hard rock legends have accumulated during their magical fifty year history. A brand new video for the song Johnny’s Band has just been released. The song is an affectionate portrait of a fictional band that quickly gain success and enjoy every side that comes with it. As often happens, Johnny’s Band can´t help but lose it, and break up, only to find out later that the pleasure still to be performing live is all that matters, even when the hype, the success and the glory have long vanished. In their minds, they are still playing the sold out big venues.

The video has been scripted and directed by Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the Deep Purple movie documentary “From Here To inFinite”. A collector’s edition single including previously unreleased live songs will be released by earMUSIC in July. The single will also be available digitally.
ABOUT DEEP PURPLE: With 120 million albums sold worldwide, they are one of the most loved British bands of all time. Recently inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, they have inspired and shaped the taste of generation of hard rock musicians and fans with milestone albums like In Rock & Machine Head which are essential chapters in rock music history. Their live album Made In Japan is often referred as one of the best (if not “the best” live album of all time.)
Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and Ian Paice have been part of the band since the classic “Mark II” era. Completing the line up is Don Airey (this will be his fourth Purple and Don has played with many rock legends including Rainbow, Whitesnake, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Collosseum II and many others) plus iconic axeman Steve Morse (who has now been in the band for over 20 years, releasing six studio albums with them).
With inFinite and it's associated The Long Goodbye tour, Deep Purple are approaching a turning point? Are the band about to write the final chapter of their career?
