Pure Reason Revolution
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.

Alan McGee released their first single on Poptones, Sony BMG released a mini album and debut album. In March 2009 they released their second longplayer ‘Amor Vincit Omnia’ on Superball Music, a rockier and more electronic proposition than its predecessor, it was typical of their ability to fuse seemingly paradoxical ambitions and tastes.

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. Since November 2006 the band line-up has remained unchanged.

In March-April 2009 their 30 date headline tour covered 12 European countries and during the second half of 2009 they appeared at European festivals alongside The Prodigy and Placebo before starting to record again.

Their third album “Hammer and Anvil” was released in Europe and the US in Oct 2010 and Chloë says: “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.”

Losers features former Cooper Temple Clause man Tom Bellamy and radio DJ Eddy Temple-Morris. Placebo’s Brian Molko guests on their cover of Jane's Addiction's 'Summertime Rolls' on the band's album, 'Beautiful Losers', which was released in September 2010.
