I just got this e-mail:
 

PURE REASON REVOLUTION - IMPORTANT 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
Box office 01603 660352
27/11/2011 Holmfirth, Picturedrome
28/11/2011 Glasgow, King Tuts
B/O: 08444 999 990
30/11/2011 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.

PRRx

They lost me along the way I'm afraid. the jump from The Dark Third to the electronic stuff wasn't to my taste at all. I'm sure they would have lost many other fans over this too.

I haven't heard anything since The Dark Third either, but I really did like that album.

I actually really liked AVO, despite the change in style. Sucks that they're breaking up though.

When I got the news that they existed it was when people here got mad about their style change so I didn't even cared to pick up their debut or any of their EPs. I silently hoped they would change back so I would have a reason to check them, but I guess i'll never know now. . . LOL

No, this is not fair. I feel like a great part of my expectations for years to come has been stolen away from me. This was the only contemporary band I really liked and the only one from whom I bought all the albums in advance. A great woe indeed, makes me feel like swearing. Damnit, what am I going to listen to now?

Honestly The Dark Third was their peak. I love electronic music but they hit what they were great with right on the onset and strayed ever more from that point. Sad to see them go, but if Hammer and Anvil was an indication, it was for the best.

To me, Hammer and Anvil still remains the best album released this year and last year combined

The Dark Third is still well worth checking out IMO. I think they were hoping for wider success with the change of style but perhaps its backfired on them?

I have both their second and third album, of which the second is the best. The latest years I've been more into electronica than the usual run-of-the-mill prog.

A shame they broke upUnhappy
