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."
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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
Hell Is for Heroes are an English post-hardcore band from London. Founder members Will McGonagle and Joe Birch (previously of Symposium) were joined by James Findlay, Tom O'Donoghue and later Justin Schlosberg. The band played their formative shows in West London throughout 2001.
After two independently released singles, Hell Is for Heroes released their debut album in February 2003 on EMI. The Neon Handshake was produced and recorded in Los Angeles at Sound City Studios and mixed in Umeå, Sweden at Tonteknik by Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lövström. Their second album, Transmit Disrupt, was released independently, before they signed a deal with Burning Heart Records, who subsequently re-released it in 2006. Their final self-titled album was released through Golf Records in 2007.
In October 2008, Hell Is for Heroes went on hiatus, returning in June 2012 to play three shows alongside Hundred Reasons and Cable. In 2017 they were back again, playing live to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of their debut album.
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.
