As if saturating the print in the month of the new album release was not enough, here is a list of promo appearances on German TV. Whichever publicity agent booked all those, have certainly earned their money. And the record company is banking big on this release.

Roger Glover and Ian Paice will also appear on DW Euromaxx on April 7 at 00:30:

Goodbye Deep Purple?
One of the most iconic bands in rock history is back in the spring with a new album: “inFinite” by Deep Purple is released on 7 April. Many interpret the suggestive album title and the following “Long Goodbye Tour” as the band’s final retreat from the music business. And the documentary film that accompanies the English band as they write their songs and record them in the studio also seems like something of a farewell gift. Euromaxx talks to bassist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice about the highlights of their career.

DW is an English language German public broadcaster.
