DEEP PURPLE Reveal Details Of New Album “Whoosh!” & European Tour Announced

Legends!

Legendary hard rockers / heavy metallers DEEP PURPLE will release their new album, Whoosh!, on June 12 via earMUSIC. This will be the 21st studio album from the band and was once again helmed by Canadian producer Bob Ezrin (KISS, PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER), who also worked on DEEP PURPLE‘s last two studio albums, 2017’s Infinite and 2013’s Now What?!

DEEP PURPLE is putting the Deep back into Purple” was the half-joking motto in the studio after the first songs made it clear that Ezrin and PURPLE were on their path to creating an album pushing the boundaries of time, while voicing their resentment about the current situation of the world and addressing all generations.

Whoosh! will be available as limited CD+DVD mediabook (including the one-hour feature “Roger Glover And Bob Ezrin In Conversation” and, for the first time, the full live performance at Hellfest 2017 as video), 2LP+DVD edition, limited boxset and digital.

“We’ve included everything that made the whole band smile, including Bob Ezrin. We’ve always enjoyed making music and having the incredible luxury of a loyal audience,” said guitarist Steve Morse.

Track listing:

01. Throw My Bones
02. Drop The Weapon
03. We’re All The Same In The Dark
04. Nothing At All
05. No Need To Shout
06. Step By Step
07. What The What
08. The Long Way Round
09. The Power Of The Moon
10. Remission Possible
11. Man Alive

About Andrew Tsekrekos (27 Articles)
Back in 1983 and along with the releases of "Show No Mercy", "Kill 'em All", "Piece Of Mind", "Sirens", "Into Glory Ride", "Holy Diver" and many others, we also had the birth of me. Hailing from Greece, my favorite band is Savatage and my passion is good music.
