about

PLEASE NOTE: THIS ALBUM IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON COMPACT DISC AND VINYL ALBUM.


Nearly 15 years on from its original release, Pure Reason Revolution’s much-lauded debut album ‘The Dark Third’ will be reissued as a Limited Edition 2CD Digipak & a Gatefold 180g 2LP+2CD on the 16th October 2020.

Jon Courtney comments: “Truly delighted the reissue of ‘The Dark Third’ is coming out. Reading Gerard de Nerval & getting submerged in surrealist literature, meeting new friends at the University of Westminster with a shared set of influences, along with Chlöe & Andrew from our home town, Reading, TDT era was a thrilling creative time. We precociously muddled our way through the technology; our ambition & imaginations knew no boundaries, and “No boundaries” became our manifesto. Almost twenty years on from the first demos, we’re extremely happy the music is still exciting, connects and sounds relevant.”

The reissues come in all new packaging, and feature new liner notes from band members Jon Courtney and Chloë Alper, as well as producer Paul Northfield. The CD edition features the album plus bonus tracks from the same period, and the LP edition features the album plus selected bonus tracks including the first vinyl appearance of the track ‘Golden Clothes’. It has also been newly remastered especially for the LP format.

Originally released back in 2006 on Sony BMG, the record was produced by Paul Northfield (Rush, Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater), and features some of the bands best-loved tracks including ‘He Tried To Show Them Magic’, ‘The Intention Craft’ & ‘The Bright Ambassadors of Morning’.

about

Pure Reason Revolution UK

Pure Reason Revolution relentlessly innovated on every release. Their debut was a modern spin on classic prog. Amor Vincit Omnia and Hammer and Anvil took them into electronic territory, while maintaining a progressive rock thread. It's fitting then that Eupnea sees them harking back to their earliest days, while rolling in the musical experience they've gathered over the years. ... more
