Never miss another 'Hundred Reasons' show
Hundred Reasons + Hell Is For Heroes + Cable
Ten years after the release of their much loved and lauded debut album, Surrey rock heroes Hundred Reasons have announced two very special anniversary shows, where they will perform 'Ideas Above Our Station' in full.
What's more, they are bringing two very special guests along for the ride. Guitarist Larry Hibbitt explains:
"It is with great excitement that we are announcing shows in Manchester and London. As a band it's important for us to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of IAOS and this is also giving us the opportunity of a proper ending. It's with further and even greater excitement that we announce that playing before us will be two properly incredible bands: Hell Is For Heroes and Cable. HIFH will be playing the Neon Handshake in full. Cable will be playing Oubliette (otherwise they won't be allowed in the building). Everything points to this being a very, very special weekend indeed. See you at the front."
High octane, adrenaline-fuelled heaviness with a soulful core from this five-piece band that won the Kerrang! Best New British Band Award 2000. There's no big 'rock' attitude, arrogant views or pretentious behaviour, just great songs, loads of emotion and energy.
Hundred Reasons tour dates
Rising from the ashes of Symposium, HIFH have been receiving some great reviews from the likes of Kerrang, NME and Rock Sound. Unafraid to glam things up, thrash their guitars around and hang upside down from venue ceilings (!), they're definitely worth catching live.
Hell Is For Heroes tour dates
Formed in 1992 by Matt Bagguley and Darius Hinks, Cable were initially inspired by the art-rock leanings of indie-labels such as Touch and Go, Blast First and Shimmy Disc, as well as the likes of Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine. During the '90s, Cable released three albums - Down-Lift the Up-Trodden ('96), When Animals Attack ('97), and Sub-Lingual ('99) - on Infectious Records, counting John Peel amongst their fans. The band spilt in 1999, but announced a special reformation in 2012 to play two shows with Hundred Reasons and Hell Is for Heroes.
