UK alternative rock band Hundred Reasons achieved great commercial and critical success in the early 2000s with their first studio album “Ideas Above Our Station”.
It peaked in the top 10 of the UK Album charts and spawned several Top 40 hits. The group wwas poised to become the next big alternative rock band, but then were dropped by their major label following some differences, followed by guitarist and vocalist Paul Townsend's exit from the band shortly afterwards. In 2009 the band embarked on a hiatus that would last many years.
But then, in February 2023, the group mounted a comeback with a new album called "Glorious Sunset, and a series of live shows, culminating in a performance at The Hammersmith Apollo in London.
Stephen ‘Steps’ Lowe of Today Radio recently interviewed Colin Doran, the band's lead vocalist, to discuss the recent shows. Doran expressed how it did not feel like the band had gone on a full blown tour. “It felt like we were gonna go out and have some fun and play some shows (...) but the shows themselves were amazing and we had the BEST time ever.”
While the band can’t imagine going back to doing this full time, as over the year they’ve created some other commitments, Doran said they all feel very good about returning to the music scene without any expectations.
Make sure to listen to the full interview on RTL Play to hear all of Colin Doran's thoughts on not dwelling on the past and how "the good outweigh the bad that happened behind the scenes."
