The One Hundred signed with Spinefarm Records

The One Hundred, one of our personal favourites here at The Unchained Rockshow, have finally been signed and to none other than Spinefarm Records. We’ve been following the boys from The One Hundred for awhile now and this announcement is told with great excitement and pride. 

To date, this young four-piece have only released a handful of songs, but their desire to cut through musical barriers with quality song-writing 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 & 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 & Reading / Leeds. In October 2016, they join Don Broco on a tour across mainland Europe, visiting Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France & The Netherlands.
Crossover and commercial whilst 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.

Speaking on behalf of the band, whose live activity will be handled by CAA (Creative Artists Agency) moving forward, frontman Jacob Field says:-

“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.”

Thoughts on A Day To Remember’s New Record.

The boys from Ocala are right back at it again and have come full force. This album doesn’t shy away from any idea they may have had. It is definitely arena ready and will be taken in by fans without a second thought.

Bad Vibrations kicks off with its title track and doesn’t hold back. Bringing in the iconic, angry spoken word straight away truly shows us that they have their own sound and will not be forgotten. If you close your eyes you can already see the crowd going bonkers to it.

Track after track, we know this record is heavier than their past few albums. It still has those sing-along hits like, Naivety, which sounds as if it could come from Common Courtesy due to its more sing-along qualities. However, they bring in some Viking-like qualities with the clashes of metal in Bullfight, which is certainly new for the band.

Track 7, Justified, is a brilliant blend of Jeremy’s emotional, clean vocals that rip into aggressive riffs and monstrous breakdowns. It gently strums in and ends the same way, which completely masks the head bopping anthem that hides within.

This is followed by the high-spirited track, We Got This. Another bouncy yet more pop-punk track, which has uplifting lyrics and layered backing vocals that gave the song a warm feel. Although the “we” may be referring to the band themselves, it is sure to resonate with fans and listeners.

The entire album seems just as personal as their past ones; showing signs of grief, self-doubt, and acceptance. It flows from song to song brilliantly. You can seriously tell they worked hard on this record over those 3 years. The band seem closer than ever and certainly don’t seem to be going anywhere soon.

One can only be excited to see these songs live and view how an anticipating audience reacts when they come back to our shores in January 2017 with support from Neck Deep and Moose Blood.

Leeds Festival 2016 – The Unchained Rock Show Review on ARFM.

So, now the post Leeds Festival blues have began to leave our systems and life becomes normal again, let’s relive the best bits of the weekend. Let’s kick it off!

All round, the weekend was nothing short of absolutely brilliant. From the jubilant and drunken spirits to the wild ones that slid round the campsite’s mass of mud, everyone could sing some kind of praise for Leeds.

However, the mud was certainly something memorable about the weekend but it didn’t succeed in dampening the festival atmosphere. Although, it was an inconvenience for most, some managed to take full advantage of it and turn it into a dirty ‘slip and slide’ when the music wasn’t to taste.

In saying that, this year’s range of musical talent was impressive. Whether you were cramming into a tent because of the rain or it was your 5th time seeing a band, all was enjoyable. Even with the cancellation of a few bands or artists it definitely wasn’t ruined.

This year’s surprise band came with its sudden and triumphant return to the rock world; British boys, You Me At Six. Following their short return with the new single and announcement of their album that share the same name of “Night People”. Coming out to the arena ready hit, Room To Breathe the packed Pit Stage erupted into madness that was shortly stopped by the sound cutting out before the final chorus in Loverboy. But non shall fear as the set carried on right where it ended.

Another mentionable set came from Australian rockers, Tonight Alive. Motivational and heart warming speeches along with hit after hit that the crowd could belt every lyric to truly showed they deserved to be there if not be higher up on the bill. The high energy, female empowering performance had us all in the palm of lead vocalist’s, Jenna Mcdougall, hands.

Sleeping With Sirens managed to receive a wild response from the crowd despite Kellin Quinn’s lose of voice with State Champs at their London based warmup gig the previous night. The energetic antics from the night before meant his vocals weren’t at their peak but it didn’t fault the band’s live musical performance.

Check out the interview with Kellin, Jack and Nick from SWS, with Steve from The Unchained Rock Show, from after their Leeds Main stage set on Thursday 8th September at 9pm on ARfm. 

It was great to see a return to the UK for U.S Texan rockers Nothing More, bringing their eclectic stage show, complete with ‘the bassinator’. A sight to behold for the appreciative Leeds crowd. We managed to grab a quick chat with the guys before their set.

Check out these interviews and more, including our interviews with  Denis Stoff the Asking Alexandria frontman,  Derek and Tyler from State Champs, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Ken & Hiro from Crossfaith.
