Freeze The Atlantic unites ex-members of Hundred Reasons and Reuben. They released their second, self-titled album through Alcopop! Records in June 2014, which received glowing reviews. The band has toured with the likes of Fighting With Wire, Sucioperro and Max Raptor amongst appearances at 2000 Trees, Truck, Y-Not & Camden Rocks Festivals.

Additionally, the bands showcase a new original track; Freeze The Atlantic’s ‘The Floor is Made of Lava’ and Samoans’ ‘Wrong Cops’.
