Deep Purple are setting sails into new waters with their first ever animated video. The official video for 'The Surprising', one of the fan favourites from the international success '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 has been 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'.

Coinciding with the video premiere, Deep Purple and earMUSIC are happy to announce and celebrate the worldwide chart success of 'inFinite' by releasing a very special, strictly limited gold edition on November 3rd. Being released in a high quality 2CD digipak with brand new artwork, the gold edition will feature all of the great masterpieces from 'inFinite' while also including a brand new, previously unreleased 80min live show from the biggest Metal festival in France, Hellfest 2017, as bonus.

Thousands of fans assembled to witness this very rocking, very real performance which will also be available as 'The inFinite Live Recordings, Pt. 1' on 3-vinyl and has also been produced by Bob Ezrin.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
