UK alternative band Pure Revolution are to split following a last run of live shows.
The band have gained a cult following over the past eight years with their mix of alternative rock, electonica and progressive musical structures. Early in their career they were championed by DJ Steve Lamacq, whilst later the band gained further recognition when they supported Porcupine Tree and Blackfield.
Their last studio album ‘Hammer & Anvil’ was released in October 2010.
The band have released an official statement on their Facebook page:
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.
