Hard-Fi: Brit-rock anthem makers
A decade and a half on from their emergence with anthemic hits such as "Cash Machine" and "Living for the Weekend", Staines-based rockers Hard-Fi are one of the bands fans would love to see reunite. Famed for their gritty social commentaries and hugely engaging gigs, they rocked crowds at events such as V Festival and T in the Park and headlined shows at huge venues - including Wembley Arena - for 10 years before disbanding in 2014.
Keep your eyes peeled for the latest Hard-Fi news - and, fingers crossed, any reunion info - at StubHub UK.
Hard-Fi: fans craving a reunion
Although now considered among British rock's elite acts, Surrey boys Hard-Fi had to wait for their big break. Frontman Richard Archer endured a notably tough time - after the failure of his previous band Contempo and the death of his father, he moved back to his hometown of Staines, broke and disheartened. However, after recruiting a new band and recording a fresh batch of songs, he caught the attention of music manager Warren Clarke.
Although dissuaded by his industry pals from working with the band, the mogul's faith in the group was rewarded when Hard-Fi's debut album Stars of CCTV - recorded for £300 in a disused taxi office - became a sleeper hit in 2005. After being re-recorded, the record finally hit number one in 2006 on the way to 1.2 million sales, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, and two Brit Awards (Best British Group and Best British Rock Act). 2007 follow-up Once Upon a Time in the West also topped the charts, earning praise for its gritty lyrics and anthemic punk attitude, while third album Killer Sounds, which features the singles "Good for Nothing", "Fire in the House" and "Bring It On", debuted at number nine on the UK Albums Chart.
A greatest hits compilation album called Hard-Fi: Best of 2004 – 2014 followed, before the band went their seperate ways after a one-off, sell out gig at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London in 2014. Although officially disbanded, you can never say never, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest news and info and buy Hard-Fi tickets at StubHub UK when they next become available.
