Just off of ORG Records:
"2nd APR - PURE REASON REVOLUTION ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM DEAL – Pure Reason Revolution are starting to reveal plans in terms of their much anticipated new album. The new single and the first fruits of this new period of activity will be the new single here on ORG – Victorious Cupid is out on April 14th - the band play a one off gig on April 12th at London’s Water Rats (aka Metro) in King’s Cross (with support from the excellent post-rock outfit from Leeds you know as Vessels). Both the single and tickets for the gig are selling fast. Advice is book your tickets now, last time we checked the gig was about 80% sold out and we’re not expecting the band to play again until the album is ready to go. Pure Reason Revolution have today announced they have joined Oceansize and You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead on rather good looking new alternative label Superball Music."
Trail of Dead and Oceansize: great company. This is really really fantastic, presuming it's true.

I'm liking Org's constant updating here! Yeah, PRR are in fact the number 2 friend on Superball's myspace page (just below Oceansize) so that hints towards this being very true! Very exciting news indeed!
(That would also explain ...And You Will Know Us hopping into PRR's top friends lately!)
Brilliant news! Congrats to all involved for getting a solid label behind Album #2's release, job well done.
I don't know anything about Superball, but by the looks of the posts in this thread they will be a great base for PRR to work off, and there shouldn't be any danger of them being f*cked about like Sony did.
I caught Trail of Dead open for Dethklok last fall..they were kinda meh to be honest. Yeah I'm wondering what 'Superball" exactly is as well..but I know Oceansize's music were just being distributed by I/O (not actually released on that label)..maybe PRR's deal with I/O was only for the 1 release?
Superball is indeed a sub-label of Inside Out (itself a sub of SPV). I know this has been on the cards for a while, the way it was explained to me was the type of album they delivered would affect which of the two labels they are on. As Superballs a bit more 'alt' then I/Os more straight ahead prog, I'd say we'll be hearing the electronic influence a lot on this 'un.
And yes, the people at Superball have ace taste. And seem to be really good all round. Good.
I only say that because that's the direction we've heard, not because of the label. Otherwise I'd have guessed it was going away from the more proggy thing but obviously wouldn't have been able to say why.
funny thing is..there is an American label called "Eyeball Records" which 1 band I really am into is on called 'Kiss Kiss"..all the *ball* names in the labesl may get me confused. Maybe the 2 labels could do a showcase and just call it "On the Ball Festival" or something
