Hundred Days release new video

Hundred Days Online Promo shot

South West rock crew ‘HUNDRED DAYS’ have just released their new video for the track ‘Whatever Happened To You’.

The video single is out now and is taken from the band’s acclaimed album ‘Mission Exodus’.

The video can be viewed now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=x9zJ4OBxbSE and check out the band’s Facebook at www.facebook.com/hundreddays

Formed in 2007 and born in Yeovil, Somerset, Hundred Days unleash a sound that flirts cunningly between classic rock and heavy metal. Drawing from everyone from ‘Slash’ and ‘Guns ‘n’ Roses’, to ‘Led Zeppelin’ and ‘AC/DC’, Hundred Days offer a unique take on the heavy rock genre.

The hotly tipped trio have been busy making new friends and gaining more fans. With a strong gigging work ethic which has seen the band play the length and breadth of the UK (including a series of high-profile festival appearances throughout the South-West area, as well as supporting Hugh Cornwell, from ‘The Stranglers’), there’s no stopping Hundred Days as they move up through the gears. Added to the fact that the threesome have recently released their brand new album ‘Mission Exodus’, which racked up widespread national press recognition and rampant coverage throughout the underground, the sky is the limit for these South-westerners.

Hundred Days now plough forward again with their video single ‘Whatever Happened To You’, which is lifted from Mission Exodus. ‘Whatever Happened To You’ is a killer blues rock cut that tips its cap to ‘Queens Of The Stoneage’ and those beard kings, ‘ZZ Top’. The track is also backed by a cool ‘quirky’ video that warrants your attention. The single is available from 4th March and can be accessed at http://hundreddays.co.uk/mp3s/Mission_Exodus/Hundred_Days-Whatever_Happened_To_You.mp3 .
