It's one of the first riffs any kid has picked up a guitar learns how to play - "Smoke on the Water" - and it belongs to Deep Purple. The band behind some of rock and roll's most memorable songs. As recently as last month, the band announced their "The Long Goodbye Tour,"  and along with that announcement came speculation that the band were finally hanging it up.

Deep Purple will be releasing their 20th studio album, inFinite, on April 7 through earMUSIC.

The band also announced “The Long Goodbye” tour, though they have not been forthcoming about whether the tour will be their last as the title seems to indicate.
