INTRODUCING: A Hundred Crowns

Forget Robin Hood, football and Sherwood Forest – Nottingham is serving up something far more exhilarating these days duckeh. Distorted Sound aren’t sure what’s coursing through the water around that particular neck of the woods but the proliferation of musical talent currently surging out of the East Midlands has never proved more potent. So, without further ado, we’d like to cordially introduce you to A HUNDRED CROWNS.

Consisting of frontman Joe Fox, guitarists Eddie Haynes and Cal Cruse-Morrell, bassist/clean vocalist Adam Gallagher and drummer James Mackellar-Still, this five-piece deliver harmonious riffs, gargantuan breakdowns and choruses catchier than flu in deepest, darkest December.

Despite only forming in early 2017, the metalcore/post-hardcore outfit have since blazed a proverbial trail across their hometown and beyond playing one energetic show after another. With credible touring and playing histories to boot (individually they’ve shared stages with behemoth acts like THY ART IS MURDER and ARCHITECTS), the A HUNDRED CROWNS contingent know how to tear shit up in a live capacity, and they’re more determined than ever to make 2018 a year to remember.

With earworm singles The Highs and Amber Rooms already in the bag (videos for both were shot by uber-director Shaun Hodson of Loki Films), A HUNDRED CROWNS are currently wrapping up a whirlwind UK promotional tour. And with a debut EP in the works as well as a high-profile support slot for INVISIONS at hallowed hometown venue Rock City just around the corner, you’d be foolish to deny yourselves such insane levels of aural pleasure.
