10 Years — the 5-person alt-metal/post-grunge band from Knoxville, Tennessee known

for their alternative and progressive sound –  are currently in studio with GRAMMY

winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters), recording

the follow up to their 2015 full-length release, ‘From Birth to Burial.’ The as-yet-untitled

studio album is tentatively slated for a summer 2017 release.


“The word that has popped up the most amongst the band, management, and label

regarding the new 10 Years record is ‘important,’” commented guitarist Brian Vodinh.

“This album is coming at a time when we are ready to be a household name, ready to

play to bigger audiences, and ready to concrete ourselves as a real career rock band.

When making a list of potential producers for the album, we really looked hard to find

the producers that made these ‘important’ records for career artists that we like and

respect.  Hands down, Nick Raskulinecz was THAT guy.  He made beautiful and really

crucial records for bands like the Deftones, Alice In Chains, and Korn and we knew that

we had to work with him. He is a Knoxville native, like ourselves, and hell…he and I went

to the same high school and even worked at the same hole in the wall Mexican restaurant

here in town, only 10 years apart.  He’s made life-changing albums for some of the largest

names in rock music and we hope to share in that same experience.  It’s an honor to have

the privilege to work with such a talent and can’t wait to share the music with the world!”


“We’re gonna put the speakers in a figure 4 leg lock,” said Raskulinecz. “Knoxville, Tennessee

in the muther******* house!!”


With their breakthrough single “Wasteland” and Top 10 radio anthems like “Shoot It Out

and “Beautiful,” 10 Years has achieved commercial success without forsaking their values,

bucking trends in favor of their own creative muse. The band has built a dedicated following

through tireless touring, often alongside rock giants like Linkin Park, Disturbed, Breaking


Benjamin, Korn and will be performing in select cities in May/June 2017.
