Watch DEEP PURPLE's Video For 'The Surprising'

October 4, 2017

British/American hard rock legends DEEP PURPLE are setting sail into new waters with their first-ever animated video.

The official clip for "The Surprising", one of the fan-favorite tracks from the band's latest album, "inFinite", takes the viewer on a journey through the magical fifty-year history of the band. With high attention to detail, the animated masterpiece follows the five heroes of our story — Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, Don Airey and Steve Morse — through a stormy ship cruise full of allusions and sees them riding off into the sunset.

The video, which can be seen below, was directed and illustrated by Matt Rooke, alongside director Peter Rogers, who also produced the video together with Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the DEEP PURPLE movie documentary "From Here To inFinite".

DEEP PURPLE and earMUSIC have also announced the release of the ninety-seven-minute documentary "From Here To inFinite", which is due out in November. It shows the history and origin of "inFinite" and provides a deep insight into the workings of the band for the first time on Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray further includes two hours of bonus material, including music videos such as "The Surprising", three previously unreleased live videos ("Time For Bedlam", "Birds of Prey" and "Smoke On The Water"),all filmed and recorded at Hellfest 2017, as well as in-depth behind-the-scenes footage, movie documentary outtakes, interviews, and an audio commentary by DEEP PURPLE themselves — all previously unreleased.

In conjunction with the release of the Blu-ray, DEEP PURPLE and earMUSIC are also releasing "The inFinite Live Recorings, Pt. 1" on a special three-disc vinyl LP, produced by Bob Ezrin. This was recorded at Hellfest 2017, the biggest metal festival in France and contains a brand new previously unreleased eighty-minute live performance.
