To date, this young four-piece has only released a handful of songs, but their desire to cut through musical barriers with quality songwriting and contemporary production has resulted in significant UK airplay from BBC Radio 1, plus media attention across the board.
On the live circuit, The One Hundred have garnered a reputation for explosive performances, taking to the road in support of such high-profile artists as Papa Roach, Crossfaith, and Motley Crue, with whom they guested in arenas.
The band easily sold out their sole headline show in London and have also packed out tents at major UK festivals such as Sonisphere, Download, and Reading/Leeds.
In October 2016, they join Don Broco on a tour across mainland Europe, visiting Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France, and The Netherlands.
Both crossover and commercial while keeping one foot squarely in metal, The One Hundred are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, set for release early next year.
Dante Bonutto, head of A&R Spinefarm Records UK, said, “The One Hundred are impressive on a number of different levels, two of the main ones being their refusal to be limited by genre, plus their desire to set the songwriting bar very high. It’s exciting to work with a band where you can think on broad terms, and where you can look to compete and make a difference. These guys are ready to leave their mark… and they rock!”
Singer Jacob Field spoke on behalf of the band, whose live activity will be handled by CAA (Creative Artists Agency), saying, “Not long ago, we played our first shows, and even less time ago, we put out five songs, hoping people might take notice. We’ve had one hell of a ride so far and it really is just the beginning. We can’t wait to unleash some new music and we’re incredibly excited to be working with Spinefarm globally to achieve our goals.”
