It’s recognition of the inimitable musical chemistry which exists between them that’s meant the band have never ‘gone on hiatus’, split, or called time on Hundred Reasons, instead marking significant years with a return to the public eye.
Formed in late 1999, Hundred Reasons established their enviable reputation as an unmissable live band at the forefront of the UK emo / post-hardcore scene of the early 00s. Innumerable festival appearances, six Top 40 singles, two Top 20 albums, global sales of over 400k and considerable critical acclaim followed. In the nascent days of the internet, HR were trailblazers for a ‘no rock star attitude’ scene which broke down the barriers between band and audience – you’d be as likely to find them in the pit or on the merch stand as on stage.
Sound like gods; behave like decent human beings.
Emerging in early 2000, U.K. alternative metal band Hundred Reasons took their nam from a poster to promote skatin. Formed of local rock outfits (Floor and Jepak) to form a new ensemble.
They played along with teenage heavy metal foursome Kittie, then started working on their first EP. It was supported by Fierce Panda Records’ Simon Williams. They played several gigs, including a performance with California-based Papa Roach. Hundred Reasons signed with Columbia Records to release their debut album. It was called ‘Ideas Above Our Station’, featuring the hit single “If I Could.”
