Pure Reason Revolution BREAK UP

facebook announcement

Dear PRR peeps,

**BREAKING NEWS** For all of us PRR has been a labour of love for many years, but our individual changing circumstances necessitate its time to finish. It’s been a long & winding journey & we want to say a huge thanks to you all for the support you’ve given.

We’re so sorry that due to extenuating circumstances we are unable to perform at Moonloop Festival, Ukraine & the two Holland shows 11th &12th November.

However we have 6 final UK shows booked to enable us to say a fond farewell to you all:

23/11/2011 Nottingham, Rescue Rooms


24/11/2011 Bristol, Thekla


26/11/2011 Norwich, Arts Centre

Website www.norwichartscentre.co.uk B/O: 01603 660352

27/11/2011 Holmfirth, Picturedrome


28/11/2011 Glasgow, King Tuts

www.gigsinscotland.com B/O: 08444 999 990 /

Nov 30th – London, Heaven


The show will be a 2-hour performance & we’ll be playing all the chart hits from “AVO” & “Hammer & Anvil” plus the almighty zenith, “The Dark Third” in full!

Buy a ticket in advance & on the night you will have a choice of claiming a free DVD or a £5 discount on any merchandise.

Extended apologies to our fans on the continent, but the reason for solely UK shows is due to fixed time constraints.

We’ve some delectable offers at: http://prr.tshirtmachine.com/ & there’ll be further swag at the November shows.

Looking forward to seeing you in November.


blech, these things always happen at non-opportune times. I have yet to write up a memorial about Oceansize, lol. But perhaps as sad as this now is (and that is/was), this will force me to do some kind of in-depth writing about the 'Size and of course these guys as well (and others who are not broken up).

But man, Battle Circus, Silverchair, Oceansize and many others. Tis the way of the industry. These bands and the people in them (and fans of course) deserve better.. But a silver lining could be the ole not ruining their legacy. And a reunion someday.

But for now, this afternoon, this is another bitter pill to swallow. Rest In Peace guys.
