* This event was re-scheduled from October 2021 and was originally due to take place at Islington Assembly Hall. Tickets remain valid! *

“It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the moving of the Pure Reason Revolution // Gazpacho tour again. For October 2021, the situation in the countries where we’re set to play is currently not completely clear. On top of that, we would need to see if all the people in our travelling party (bands and crew) would be fully vaccinated by then. Which is currently not the case. With all these uncertainties we are rescheduling the tour to April 2022.”

Both bands are eager to finally see you in April 2022, so hold on to your tickets.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••• About:

Pure Reason Revolution – Last year, Jon Courtney and Chloë Alper reunited the much-loved Pure Reason Revolution, playing their first show in close to eight years at Midsummer Prog Festival in the Netherlands, and performing their debut album ‘The Dark Third’ in full. Today they are excited to announce the release of ‘Eupnea’, their first new studio album in nearly 10 years, for the 3rd of April 2020.

The band comments: “We stuck to our manifesto of no musical boundaries and the result was ‘Eupnea’. We return to a more progressive sound with ferocious guitars, thunderous drums and the stacked harmonies that give us our signature sound. We’re excited to begin playing it live.”

‘Eupnea’, the long-awaited return from the band, sees them harking back to their earliest days, while rolling in all of the musical experiments and experience they’ve gathered in the intervening years.

The cinematic soundscapes of Hammer and Anvil? Check. The dark atmosphere and synths of Amor Vincit Omnia? Check. The gauzy psych-prog of their debut? Ch-check.

It’s sprawling, with three tracks hitting the 10 minute mark and one notching up against 15 minutes. Sure, track length does not equal ambition, but still, it’s quite the statement of intent.

‘Eupnea’ features the work of artist Jill Doherty on its front cover, and will be available as a Limited CD Digipak, Gatefold 2LP + CD and as a digital album. You can view the artwork below. The band originally formed back 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 and Anvil’ in 2010.

Pure Reason Revolution originally parted ways in November 2011 following touring in support of their 2010 album ‘Hammer and Anvil’. Since then, Jon Courtney started Bullet Height and released their debut album ‘No Atonement’ in 2017, while Chloë Alper began a new band called Tiny Giant as well as playing live with the likes of Charli XCX and James.

Gazpacho – The norwegian art rock band Gazpacho has been around for many years. The original core band of Jan-Henrik Ohme (vocals), Jon-Arne Vilbo (guitars) and Thomas Andersen (keyboards, programming, producer) started making music together in 1996 and the band has since expanded with Mikael Krømer (violin, co-producer), Robert R Johansen (drums) and Kristian Torp (bass). They completely defy genre classification – they were once described as being “classical post ambient nocturnal atmospheric neo-progressive folk world rock”. Over the years the band delivered one highly acclaimed album after another. The most recent albums ‘Molok’ and ‘Soyuz’. It saw the band continue to push the boundaries for creating the most complicated and strangest concepts for a record. The band is currently finishing the work on a new album to be released on kscope in the early fall of 2020. To be followed by a tour in October. Comment of the band: Gazpacho are happy to announce that we are hitting the roads in Europe this October, for a double-bill tour with the brilliant PRR! Yes! You get 2 concerts for the price of.. well.. one-ish! With a 2020-released album in our pocket we’re looking forward to once again meet the crowd, strengthen bonds and friendships, and of course make new ones. The 2020 tour will include France, Holland, Poland, Germany and the UK from October 16 to October 25.
