Deep Purple New Album Plans Unclear

(Rock News Desk) Deep Purple can't decide whether to make another album but bassist Roger Glover believes they must, even if there's no money in it.

The band are poised to tour with a 28-piece orchestra on their Songs That Built Rock production, and despite the challenges associated they don't plan to rehearse before hitting the stage in Canada tomorrow night. Glover tells the Toronto Sun: "Rehearse? I don't even remember that word. We haven't rehearsed for years. We all know what we're doing we're good musicians. So, like most Purple things, it'll be done by the shirt-tails and it'll somehow fall together. Besides, if something goes wrong, people love it."

And although they've started writing material for a potential follow-up to 2005′s Rapture of the Deep, the bassist reveals there's an amount of doubt over whether, or how, it will see the light of day. "There's been disagreement in the band about whether to do another album," says Glover. "They really don't make money any more. My opinion is we're an album band and we should make them even if it costs us money, because that's what we do. Maybe I'm a traditionalist, but I believe we should stay where we are.
