Legends of the rock scene, Deep Purple, are preparing to release their new album in April 2017.
They’re still going strong after forming in 1968 (albeit with far from the original lineup), but it’s not their new music that’s causing a ruckus, but their choice of album art for new record Infinite that’s attracting attention.
Various fans have been quick to point out that the infinity symbol and colouring used for Infinite is super similar to the Devin Townsend Project‘s logo.
While there are definite similarities, Townsend certainly didn’t invent the concept of the infinity logo (that honour goes to British mathematician John Walls), and the muso has weighed into the debate on Twitter, categorically declaring that he could not care less.
Re- deep purple logo: not a big deal to me. Not sure it should be…plus it's Steve morse and he can do whatever he wants 🙂
