Ian Gilan: "It's About Time For Deep Purple To Begin Work On New Album"
Deep Purple, one of Britain's foremost hard rock bands, took part in a press conference Tuesday, February 22nd in Mexico City ahead of the group's short tour of Mexico.
When asked if there are any plans for Deep Purple to record a new studio album soon, the band's vocalist, Ian Gillan, replied, "I guess it's about time, isn't it?! So we're gonna get together and have a writing session quite soon. And if we get excited, then we'll probably have another [album finished and ready for release] shortly after that. We'll see how it goes. But there's no plans. But I think we're getting poked by various connections who would like to see another Deep Purple record. So I think it's about time."
Deep Purple's 18th studio album, "Rapture of the Deep", was released in November 2005. It is the fourth studio CD from Deep Purple since guitarist Steve Morse joined the band in 1994. It was also the second album to feature veteran keyboardist Don Airey.
