The brand new video for the song “Johnny’s Band” by rock legends, Deep Purple, premiered earlier this week, and the song is taken from their worldwide chart album “inFinite”, which was 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.
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 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”.
