The Hundred Days

Some young bands search for their sound for years, trying many different things in hopes of finding just the right combination. But for San Francisco-based band The Hundred Days, the four musicians found themselves able to discover and perfect their sound in just one-hundred days and nights by locking themselves in a house until they hit upon the perfect formula. Their debut album, “Really?,” released August 16, 2011, is a collection of critically-acclaimed indie-rock gems that are as catchy as they are clever and sonically arresting. 
”Really?” is the latest project from the production team of Michael Patterson (Beck, Ladytron, She Wants Revenge) and Nic Jodoin (Great Northern). With driving rhythms, soaring guitars, textural keyboards and powerful vocal melodies, The Hundred Days push indie/alt rock in new directions. Drawing from a variety of influences (post punk, alternative, britpop), the band’s familiar, yet intrinsically unique sound has been compared to The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Radiohead as well as contemporary rockers Franz Ferdinand, The Bravery and The Killers. A moody, dynamic indie rock band, The Hundred Days showcase tight musicianship complemented by razor-sharp pop writing capabilities with both sophistication and urgency. Their first single from the album, “Sex U” and accompanying video has attracted an enormous buzz on the Internet, with NME naming it one of the “10 Best Free MP3s”. The video, directed by David Dutton, follows the band on a wild night out on the town where the ladies they meet aren’t exactly what they seem. Press has been clamoring for it after it premiered on Baeble, followed by a featured Video of the Day on AOL Spinner and Consequence of Sound, among other sites. 
The band has toured extensively across the U.S. as well as the UK, and has played major festivals and showcases including SXSW, the CMJ Marathon in NYC, Noise Pop Festival and the BFD Festival at Shoreline Amphitheatre alongside Moby, MGMT and Pennywise, among others.
