Rock icons Whitesnake are set to return with their 12th studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in North America on May 19th via Frontiers Music SRL. The Purple Album is a re-imagination of classic songs from David Coverdale's time as the lead singer for Deep Purple's Mark 3 and Mark 4 studio albums. The album is currently available for pre-order in various configurations on Amazon: a standard edition, a deluxe edition featuring 2 bonus tracks, 4 music videos and a Behind The Scenes featurette on the recording of the album and in a double LP vinyl format. Plans are also underway for a special limited box set edition with memorabilia and merchandise. All details will be announced soon.
Its a tribute. A homage. Its a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago, states Coverdale. As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldnt have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We cant wait to play these songs in concert!

The Quireboys are gearing up for the release of their ninth studio album on March 30th, an ambitious 4CD deluxed edition package called 'St Cecilia And The Gypsy Soul'.
Locked away for a week in the Swedish outpost of Klippan, the Quireboys couldn't have imagined what would emerge from the most intensive recording process of their careers.
"It was the bleakest place I've ever seen," said guitarist Paul Guerin, following his stay in the town whose name translates as Cliff's Edge. "I felt like I was in the Big Brother house," added frontman Spike. "I never stepped out of the studio -- not once. We could have gone stir crazy but we came out of there with a record we never knew was possible."
This deluxe release of Sonic Highways includes more than 3 hours of bonus material including 10 extended interviews & never before seen footage shot during the recording of Sonic Highways.
Pre-orders for the Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways DVD / Blu Ray begin March 9 at FooFighters.com and via iTunes. Fans can also purchase DRM free files direct from the band at http://buy.foofighters.com
