earMUSIC has uploaded a four-minute clip in which the members of DEEP PURPLE were asked some questions in a rapid-fire session. Check it out below.
DEEP PURPLE‘s new studio album, “InFinite”, will be released on April 7 via earMUSIC. The disc was tracked in February 2016 at a studio in Nashville, Tennessee and was once again helmed by Bob Ezrin, who has previously worked with KISS, PINK FLOYD, PETER GABRIEL, ALICE COOPER and KANSAS, among others.
In a recent interview with Billboard, DEEP PURPLE bassist Roger Glover spoke about the band’s upcoming tour, “The Long Goodbye”, which starts May 13 in Europe and includes a late-summer North American leg with ALICE COOPER and EDGAR WINTER. Asked if the tour title is trying to tell fans something, Glover said: “Well, we’re letting you make your own minds up. No one wants to stop. But we know that I’m 71 now, [singer Ian] Gillan is 71, we’re all about late 60s, early 70s, and bodies have a way of not keeping up with your brain or your career. We’re all sort of approaching that point where I can’t imagine another eight years to do an album.”
Glover continued: “The time is approaching when it will end, but we don’t want to face that. We don’t actually want to make a date or a final tour or anything. We just want to carry on as long as nature allows or is kind of dignified. If we can’t do what we do anymore, then yes, it’s time to stop. But we’re still doing it, and we’re still enjoying it very much. So all we’re saying is the door is closing, but it’s not closed yet.”
