Hundred Reasons to play ‘Ideas Above Our Station’ in full at Sonisphere 2014

Band return to the Knebworth rock festival after cancelled performance in 2012

Hundred Reasons are set to perform their debut album ‘Ideas Above Our Station’ in full at this year’s Sonisphere festival.

The band were originally meant to play the rock weekender when they reformed in 2012, coinciding with the record’s 10th anniversary. The festival was eventually cancelled that year due to “unforeseen difficulties”.

Guitarist Larry Hibbert said of the band’s booking for this year’s event: “We said we’d never do it again, but the cancelled Sonisphere of 2012 left a big hole in that summer for us. So when our shorts-wearing, crowd-surfing, festival-promoting comrade Alan Day came up with a slot for us this year we just couldn’t say no. And we didn’t. Don’t get used to this. We say no A LOT so this is not going to happen often, if ever. But when it makes sense it makes sense and we’re there.”


More bands have also been confirmed to play the festival, which takes place at Knebworth Park between July 4-6. Ex-bassist for The Wildhearts Danny McCormack will bring his new band The YoYos to Hertfordshire, alongside other acts including Messenger, Mixhell and Dripback. The festival will be headlined by The Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica.
