The One Hundred
Having extensively played and toured together as members of electro/metalcore band 'COLLAPSE THE CONTROL', Jacob Field, Tim Hider and Phil Kneller knew a little something about being a band. More importantly, they knew when something was wrong. It was summer 2012 – The band had just destroyed the Red Bull stage at Hevy Fest. What should have been a joyous occasion was somewhat sombre. The band was over and the guys knew it. It was time for a change. A new breed. A new generation.
THE ONE HUNDRED arose from the ashes. With a line-up change sorted (new addition Joe Balchin on drums) the writing process began - the band soon realised their new dynamic was something special. Mixing an eclectic combination of crushing guitars and infectious electronica, the band have a unique home-grown approach to song writing which incorporates elements of metal, hip hop, rock and dance. Throw in Jacobs distinctively English rap-come-singing and you've got a band who will have you singing along, punching the air and screaming for more. They are the real deal. They are the new generation.
