THE SONG “JOHNNY’S BAND” – FROM THE NEW ALBUM “INFINITE” – BECOMES A VIDEO CLIP. NEW EP / SINGLE ANNOUNCED FOR JULY 2017.
Deep Purple1. June 2017

A brand new video for the song “Johnny’s Band” by rock legends DEEP PURPLE is being premiered today.


The song is taken from Deep Purple’s worldwide chart album “inFinite”, which has been released on April 7th 2017, entering the Top 10 Album Charts in eighteen countries, once again smashing chart records the hard rock legends have accumulated during their magical fifty year history.


The song is an affectionate portrait of a fictional band that quickly gain success and enjoy every side that comes with it. As often happens, Johnny’s Band can´t help but lose it, and break up, only to find out later that the pleasure still to be performing live is all that matters, even when the hype, the success and the glory have long vanished.

In their minds, they are still playing the sold out big venues.

Says Roger Glover: "Johnny is Everyman, Johnny’s Band is Everyband. It seems that many bands follow the same path… small beginnings, lucky breaks, success, good times, too much fun, problems, split ups, reunions, then it’s the good old days.  I’ve seen it so often, it’s the stereotypical history.
Any resemblance to any band, alive or not, is mere coincidence.  No animal was hurt in the making of this video."

The video has been scripted and directed by Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the Deep Purple movie documentary “From Here To inFinite”.


The video for “Johnny’s Band” can be watched on earMUSIC’s official YouTube channel:


The song can be found on the recent studio album “inFinite”.

A collector’s edition single including previously unreleased live songs will be released by earMUSIC in July. The single will also be available digitally.


Deep Purple are currently touring the world on their “inFinite – The Long Goodbye Tour”, playing in front of thousands of excited fans and, for the first time, presenting songs from their ground breaking album “inFinite”, among them also “Johnny’s Band”.
