The rockers return after a lengthy break...

Hundred Reasons have revealed details of their forthcoming comeback single ‘THE GREAT TEST’, as well as announcing a string of dates surrounding the release.

The single will be out on November 3 and will be available on two CDs and a 10″ vinyl.

CD1 will feature the B-sides ‘LED’, ‘Change of Season’, and the video for ‘The Great Test’.

CD2 will include the tracks ‘Anyone Else’s Conclusion’, ‘Seven Years’, and the ‘Anyone Else’s Conclusion’ video. ‘LED’ and ‘Change of Season’ will appear on the flipside on the 10″.
