The year in music just got a lot heavier - Deep Purple have revealed the title, tracklisting and release date of their comeback album.

NOW What?!, which will be the band's first new album since 2005, will hit the Internet and record stores at the end of April (13) - just over a month before fellow British rock icons Black Sabbath release their much-anticipated comeback, 13, in June (13).

NOW What?! is Deep Purple's 19th studio album and features a tribute to late horror movie star Vincent Price.
