Jon Courtney and Chloë Alper have come together again to reform Pure Reason Revolution. The reunited bandmates played their first show in close to eight years at the recent Midsummer Prog Festival in the Netherlands, performing their debut album, The Dark Third, in full.
“The festival and crowd reaction was incredible," the band said. "We were touched that people had traveled from Canada, Russia, Italy, Spain, UK and many more countries. The tracks are exciting as ever to play, and it's encouraging to see the material still has relevance and connects.”
The band also revealed that they have signed to InsideOutMusic and are working on a brand new studio album. “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,” says Courtney.“It's sounding spectacular,” Alper adds. The album is expected to drop in 2020.
Pure Reason Revolution originally parted ways in November 2011, after touring in support of their 2010 album, Hammer & Anvil. Since then, Courtney has started the band Bullet Height, whose debut album No Atonement was released in 2017, while Alper has started a new band called Tiny Giant, along with live appearances with the likes of Charli XCX & James.
The band originally formed 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 and Hammer & Anvil in 2010.
