According to the Deep Purple fan site The Highway Star, Living Loud — the new "supergroup" consisting of Bob Daisley (Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Uriah Heep) on bass, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Kansas, Dixie Dregs) on guitar, Don Airey (Deep Purple, Rainbow) on keyboards, Lee Kerslake (Uriah Heep, Ozzy Osbourne) on drums and Jimmy Barnes (Cold Chisel) on vocals — are currently in discussions to tour the U.S. in January next year.
Living Loud's self-titled CD and DVD will be released through EMI International in three formats: The original studio CD with two bonus live tracks ("Crazy Train" and "Good Times"), the DVD, or a DVD/CD double-pack titled "Loud & Live." The DVD will be available in PAL and NTSC formats, and will feature two bonus tracks not found on the CD ("Gimme Some Lovin'" and "Good Times"). Exact release dates have yet to be confirmed. In addition, negotiations are in place with iTunes to release a recording of the group's entire April 26 show in Sydney exclusively in the coming weeks.
Preview clips of three tracks from the Living Loud DVD have been posted online. The songs available for viewing are "Crazy Train" (Quicktime), "Good Times" (Quicktime) and "I Don't Know" (Quicktime).
Living Loud's debut album was recorded in Florida at Greg Rikes studio with producer Darren Schneider, who has worked with Deep Purple, Matchbox Twenty and Creed. The keyboards were subsequently laid down and at AIR studios in London, where the entire affair was mixed. The album includes five new original songs written by Steve, Jimmy, Lee and Bob, along with several cover versions of various Ozzy Osbourne classics.
