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 and check out the band’s Facebook at

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 .

HUNDRED DAYS to release ‘Mission Exodus’, on 22nd October‏


South West Rocksters ‘Hundred Days’ drop their new album ‘Mission Exodus’

through Rogue Rock Records via digital stores on Monday 22nd October.


Spawned in Yeovil, Somerset, Hundred Days plough forward expressing a sound that impressively rides the thin line between heavy metal and classic rock. Garnering influence from contemporary custodians such as ‘30 Seconds To Mars’ and ‘Slash’, through to colossal classic kings ‘AC/DC’ and ‘Led Zeppelin’, Hundred Days display their own stripes, resolving to etch a different slant on the heavy rock genre.

Although the band were originally formed in the Summer of 2007, the roots of Hundred Days stem back to the late nineties where the current line-up of the band played under the guise ‘X-Teller’, along with a different singer. After a series of successful UK tours and a hatful of official releases, ‘X-Teller’ split. After taking a year off, three of the four, decided to reform under a new moniker and with lead guitarist Stuart Curtin stepping up to take over the vocals duties and with bassist Simon Evans and drummer Ryan Leese resuming their posts as the rhythm section. The galvanized trio chose an uncharted approach to mould and form their brand new set and with renewed vigor Hundred Days were officially born.

Now fast forward to the present day and the industrious trio have nationally released two records, have played the length and breadth of the UK (including a series of high-profile festival appearances throughout the South-West area), and have supported Hugh Cornwell from legendary punks, ‘The Stranglers’. Hundred Days are now poised to break the national scene with their third release, in the shape of their explosive new album ‘Mission Exodus’.

‘Mission Exodus’ is Hundred Days’ biggest release to date; the album flows with epic production underpinned by subtle textures and intricately woven guitar parts. The album manages to shine as a modern rock record while still tipping it’s cap to a host of iconic artists from the power and precision of Metallica to the classic cool of Guns ‘N Roses and Led Zeppelin. ‘Mission Exodus’ is stacked with fourteen full length tracks and features two astute cover versions including 80’s mega hit ‘Power of Love’  by Huey Lewis and The News, and a live version of The Wings’ classic ‘Live and Let Die’. Also look out for a series of UK shows penned for the Autumn period.


TRACKLISTING: 1. Intro; 2. Mission Exodus; 3. Taste of Convenience; 4. What We Do; 5. Burn in Hell; 6. Suicide Joe; 7. Power of Love; 8. Psycho Woman; 9. Whatever Happened to You; 10.

DARK STARES Debut EP ‘Tell Your Friends’, out 10th September‏

Brit Rocksters ‘Dark Stares’ roll out their debut EP ‘Tell Your Friends’ on Monday 10th September, available through all online stores.

Showcasing an enticing blend of infectious Rock ‘n’ Roll, influenced by the riffy grooves of Queens Of The Stoneage, the classic vibes of Led Zeppelin, and the inventive dexterity of White Stripes, Dark Stares are primed to set loose their own brand of Rock ‘n’ Roll to the nation this Summer!

Born early 2011 and hailing from St Albans, Dark Stares feature three blood brothers – Miles Kristian Howell handles the vocals and guitar, with brothers Taylor and Brett respectively hammering out the beats and supplying the bass groove. Harry Collins perfectly rounds out with the four-piece on lead guitar by adding layered dynamism and gritty depth.

Ever since their inception, the band have continually cut their teeth playing shows; however it wasn’t until the latter part of 2011 when the rising quartet began to play more high profile shows, including a cluster of notably successful dates, managing to rack up supports with Enter Shikari and The Darkness in the process. Now with a growing fan-base in tow, and a hearty live reputation, the band will release their debut EP ‘Tell Your Friends’ to a national audience.

Loaded with intriguing and enticing tracks, the bands’ debut EP flows with impressive maturity, from the pulsating rhythms and mighty riffage of the opening cut and new video ‘Whisky’, to the rock ‘n’ roll swagger of ‘Long Live the King’. The record then draws to a colossal climax with the anthemic ‘Invaders’. Dark Stares release ‘Tell Your Friends’ this September and play a host of festivals over the Summer, with the likes of Fun Lovin Criminals and The Subways, in support.

Dark Stares’ new video for ‘Whisky’ is out now, check it out below:
