Whitesnake returns in 2015 with tour dates and the release of their first new studio album in four years. “The Purple Album” is set for release on May 19, 2015  on Frontiers Music SRL.

In 1978, David Coverdale formed Whitesnake in England.  Whitesnake has numerous multi-platinum selling albums over the life of its career.  Many hits such as, “Still of the Night”, “Is This Love”, and “Here I Go Again” to name a few.  This marks Whitesnake’s 12th studio album of their 37 year existence as a band.  “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 on Amazon in a deluxe edition format ( http://geni.us/WSPurpleDLXamz ) featuring 2 bonus tracks, 4 music videos and a Behind The Scenes featurette on the recording of the album. A standard edition and a double LP vinyl format will be available in the near future. The band plans for a special limited box set edition with memorabilia and merchandise in the future.

From the official Whitesnake website, David Coverdale states “It’s a tribute. A homage. It’s a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago,” “As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can’t wait to play these songs in concert!”

From the opening notes of the classic track “Burn,” to album closer “Stormbringer,” Whitesnake are back and better than ever. Songs like “Lady Double Dealer,” “Soldier of Fortune” and “Sail Away” are given a new energy in the very capable hands of the current Whitesnake lineup featuring David Coverdale on vocals, Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitars, Michael Devin on bass and Tommy Aldridge on drums. A video for the first single “Stormbringer” can be seen here: [youtube=http://youtu.be/Xk9wWj8Wh30]
