Pure Reason Revolution: third album!

PURE REASON REVOLUTIONs 3rd album “Hammer and Anvil” will be released in G/A/S on October 15th and in Europe on October 18th (Superball Music | EMI)

Pure Reason Revolution are proof a band can be influenced by ELO, Smashing Pumpkins, Soulwax, Depeche Mode and The Beach Boys all at once, yet make sense of a vision that brings those disparate voices together into a sound that combines electronic dance rhythms, pop hooks and sublime vocal harmonies with huge rock riffs. Over the years PRR have ‘stuck to their guns’ and built a formidable live reputation sharing stages alongside the likes of Mew, Porcupine Tree, Secret Machines and Editors. “When we started we were unaware of what we could achieve as individuals, now we’ve all learned what our strengths and weaknesses are and how to use them.” (Chloë)

Release Date Europe: October 18th // Release Date G/A/S: October 15th

The upcoming third album entitled “Hammer and Anvil” is inspired by a myriad of influences, but in particular war. “I’ve been researching my ancestry; specifically Great Granddad & his role in WW1… I’m staggered by the sheer enormity, the valour, the dead, the mass destruction.” (Jon Courtney)

“Hammer and Anvil” is co-produced by Jon Courtney & Tom Bellamy (Cooper Temple Clause, Losers, White Belt Yellow Tag). Regarding the recordings Jon states: “The recording process was new territory for me; some songs I’d take to Tom fully developed & with a large palette of sounds, others were simple vox/piano sketches that were then built into complete productions. It was a really exciting collaboration.”
