Hundred Reasons are to release their version of Smiths’ ’HOW SOON IS NOW?’ on September 27 through SOREPOINT RECORDS.

The song will be available on both a four-track CD and two-track 7” vinyl, and precedes the release of a brand new EP, due November.

The band have also recorded a further three covers for the B-sides, The Bangles’ ’Eternal Flame’, Tracy Chapman’s ’Fast Car’ and ’Back In Black’ by [url=]AC/DC, who they supported last year.
