The next Deep Purple album is set for an April 26, 2013, release. The countdown has started at deeppurple2013.

"The title of our new album is still a question mark to all of us... We have recorded a new album, and it's a fantastic collection of songs. At the moment that's the only affirmative point we can offer..." (Ian Gillan, December 2012)

Eight years after the release of "Rapture Of The Deep", following many rumours later revealed to be unfounded, Deep Purple, one of the most important and influential British rock bands of all time, have confirmed the release of a new album completely made of new studio material.

YES: To Perform "The Yes Album", "Close To The Edge", "Going For The One" On A Special Tour In 2013

Call it a true classic rock triple header - and the quintessential live concert experience. 

YES will perform three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert, on a special tour in 2013: 1971's "The Yes Album", 1972's "Close To The Edge" and 1977's "Going For The One". Music audiences will experience the albums, each representing an important milestone in YES' career, performed from beginning to end. 

The multi-platinum progressive rock band - bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes and singer Jon Davison - will kick off the North American tour March 1 and conclude April 12 in Detroit.

The tour will mark the first time since 1973 that YES - who have sold close to 50 million albums worldwide - have performed an album onstage in its entirety. 

Steve Howe says, "These albums we all easily agreed on - they are complete works in themselves," adding that several of the songs have rarely been performed live. "I believe the only song not performed in concert is 'A Venture' from 'The Yes Album'," says Chris Squire. "And probably the most tricky of all the songs planned for this set is 'Turn Of The Century'from the 'Going For The One' album." Alan White believes, "This is a great opportunity to show the growth of YES in these different eras - and to relive the memories of these times."

"I think the 12-inch album is alive and well as reinforced by the rising interest in the analog format," says Squire when asked about the album format in the singles-driven digital age. The album, says Howe, "has never totally gone away - there are those who completely understand." 

Tour dates: 

Mar. 01 - West Wendover, NV - Peppermill Concert Hall * 
Mar. 03 - Seattle, WA - Moore Theatre 
Mar. 05 - San Francisco, CA - The Warfield

Deep Purple: New Song Titles Revealed

According to Classic Rock magazine, Deep Purple will release their 19th studio album in April 2013. The CD, which was produced by Bob Ezrin in Nashville, Tennessee, will contain 13 tracks, including "Out Of Hand", "Hell To Pay", "Weirdistan", "Uncommon Man" and"Above And Beyond". The latter song references the band's late keyboard player, Jon Lord, in the lyric "Souls having touched are forever entwined."

Regarding the album title, Gillan offered the following cryptic comment to Classic Rock: "There's a big question mark over the name at the moment. And possibly an exclamation mark as well. You can read what you like into what I've just said. All will become clear - as mud - later on. That's all I'm allowed to say. The question mark and the exclamation mark might get you intrigued."
