Info for Time for Bedlam
“Time For Bedlam” is an up-tempo classic Deep Purple song and the first glimpse of the upcoming album “inFinite” that follows the successful „NOW What?!“.
The limited edition EP that features non-album songs and unreleased recordings will hit the shops on February 3rd.
The B-side “Paradise Bar” is a brand new recording that resulted from the album rehearsals and recordings.“Hip Boots’s” final version will be found on the upcoming album, the EP includes a special instrumental rehearsal version that was recorded by no other than Ian Paice himself. To round off the 4-track single, “NOW What?!’s” “Uncommon Man” can be found as instrumental version, highlighting the beautiful melody and intricate arrangements.
“Time For Bedlam”, as well as the album, has once again been produced by Bob Ezrin who has formed with the five members of Deep Purple an explosive songwriting team. “inFinite” is possibly the most “seventies” of all Deep Purple albums released since the 1984 reunion with “Perfect Strangers”.
Ezrin and Deep Purple have managed to capture the purest Purple classic sound while staying well away from the temptation to be nostalgic or to “play themselves”.
are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band's sound shifted to hard rock in 1970. Deep Purple, together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-Seventies". They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band" for a 1972 concert at London's Rainbow Theatre, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 8,5 million certified units in the US.
The band has gone through many line-up changes and an eight-year hiatus (1976–1984). The 1968–1976 line-ups are commonly labelled Mark I, II, III and IV. Their second and most commercially successful line-up featured Ian Gillan (vocals), Jon Lord (organ), Roger Glover (bass), Ian Paice (drums), and Ritchie Blackmore (guitar). This line-up was active from 1969 to 1973, and was revived from 1984 to 1989, and again from 1992 to 1993. The band achieved more modest success in the intervening periods between 1968 and 1969 with the line-up including Rod Evans (vocals) and Nick Simper (bass, backing vocals), between 1974 and 1976 (Tommy Bolin replacing Blackmore in 1975) with the line-up including David Coverdale (vocals) and Glenn Hughes (bass, vocals), and between 1989 and 1992 with the line-up including Joe Lynn Turner (vocals). The band's line-up (currently featuring Ian Gillan, and guitarist Steve Morse from 1994) has been much more stable in recent years, although organist Jon Lord's retirement from the band in 2002 (being succeeded by Don Airey) left Ian Paice as the only original Deep Purple member still in the band.
