Info for Eupnea
In their decade as a band, Pure Reason Revolution relentlessly innovated on every release. Their debut was a modern spin on classic prog, as accessible to fans of Tool and Muse as it was to Pink Floyd fans. Amor Vincit Omnia and Hammer and Anvil took them into electronic territory, all while maintaining a common progressive rock thread. It's fitting then that Eupnea, the long-awaited return from the band, sees them harking back to their earliest days, while rolling in all of the musical experiments and experience they've gathered in the intervening years. The cinematic soundscapes of Hammer and Anvil? Check. The dark atmosphere and synths of Amor Vincit Omnia? Check. The gauzy psych-prog of their debut? Ch-check. For some bands, this would simply be retreading old ground. For Pure Reason Revolution this relaunch is a rebirth, producing their most confident record yet, which takes them in a new direction while weaving in the elements that endeared them to fans in the first place.
"Pure Reason Revolution inhabit a sound uniquely their own. They will likely come into quick favor of fans of Anathema, Marillion and the previous bands mentioned further above, but also a wider range of other bands like U2 and Kraftwork. “Progressive” and “rock” fit the bill here, incorporating inspirations equally from the 70s, 80s and 90s and molding something new out of it. Fortunate is the fan who discovers them." (sonicperspectives.com)

Pure Reason Revolution
Last year, Jon Courtney and Chloë Alper reunited the much-loved Pure Reason Revolution, playing their first show in close to eight years at Midsummer Prog Festival and performing their debut album ‘The Dark Third’ in full.
Pure Reason Revolution played their first show in close to 8 years at the recent Midsummer Prog Festival in the Netherlands, and performing their debut album in full. They comment: “The festival & crowd reaction was incredible,” the band told Prog. “We were touched that people had travelled from Canada, Russia, Italy, Spain, UK & many more countries. The tracks are exciting as ever to play & it’s encouraging to see the material still has relevance & connects.”
The band have also revealed they are working on a brand new studio album, and have signed to InsideOutMusic for its release in 2020. “We’re currently working on material for the new album which returns to a more progressive sound & it’s nice to remind ourselves of the genesis of PRR,” vocalist and guitarist Jon Courtney says.
Pure Reason Revolution originally parted ways in November 2011, following touring in support of their 2010 album Hammer & Anvil. Since then, Jon Courtney started Bullet Height and released their debut album No Atonement in 2017, while Chloë Alper began a new band called Tiny Giant as well as playing live with the likes of Charli XCX & James.
The band originally formed back in 2003, releasing their much-loved debut album The Dark Third in 2006 via Sony BMG. They went on to release the albums Amor Vincit Omnia in 2009 & Hammer & Anvil in 2010.
