‘Kill Your Own’, eh? Don’t worry, it’s not a new Ted Nugent autobiography, it’s just the title of Hundred Reasons’ third album; a record which should hopefully bring the Surrey quintet the success and acclaim that they’ve long deserved. Produced by their guitarist, Larry Hibbitt, ‘Kill Your Own’ is arguably the band’s heaviest effort to date, but it retains the immediacy and variety that made their debut ‘Ideas Above Our Station’ such a success.
The likes of ‘Feed The Fire’ and the title track are a feast of thunderous riffs and soaring vocals, along with huge melodic choruses that just demand crowd participation; whilst on the flipside, the slower ‘The Chance’ betrays a fragile side to a band who have never before sounded so confident.
Quite simply, this sounds like the record that Hundred Reasons have always wanted to make. Catch them on their imminent UK tour:
