Right, obviously Losers is awesome but who's been listening to The Last Republic? Have given them a spin or two and, sure, while it may be very Editors/Coldplay for this forum it's very proficient and catchy. Looking forward to them. Perhaps a less cool, but catchier, Domino State? The sound isn't altogether different.

Yeah they sound OK.
Loving Jamie's tweet: Next week I have to learn 2 'new' songs and practice with PRR, then go to Munich and play a show on Sun. Just a normal week then...
especially the 'new' in sarcastic quote marks. Are we thinking Bullitts and Goshen's? Maybe Bullitts and Golden Clothes? The possibilities are endless! I guess if the songs they're learning aren't genuinely new then that scuppers my hopes of hearing open insurrection...well I guess you can't have everything!
Bullitts?! that would be SO COOL! but why would they choose NOW to play it? hmmm? Can't wait for Scala
They always said it was going to be a special show and they've been begged and begged, I think it was only a matter of time before they did...then again, maybe they are calling all of our bluff and won't play it at all!
Either way, it's going to be a great gig. Not too long to wait now

I think they won't play Armistice because they've already got a closer in AVO which everyone seems happy with. I don't think they'll do Gaudete (despite one or two polite requests on twitter, including from myself), mainly because it's a bit weird and non-PRRish and it's all a cappella which they might find a tad tricky (not because they can't sing [DUH!!] but because there's no other ACap live tracks). I also think they won't play Open Insurrection, just because they've already learned five songs off of H&A - though I'd say it was the most likely of the three.
I may well be wrong on all counts! What the hell do I know? [and for the record I do really WANT them to play OI and Gaudete, I just think it's unlikely]
In fact, shall we start guessing at set lists? Could be fun...
My guess is the most likely songs will be
Les Malheurs Black Mourning Patriarch Apogee Deus LMLR Fight Fire Bullitts Goshens Valour Twyncyn Bright Ambassadors AVO
Roughly in that order. Also, that's too many songs for a PRR set I expect - these are just the most likely in my opinion.
