Universal Republic Band 10 Years Hit Studio To Record New Album
Universal Republic Records' rock band 10 Years is hitting the studio this month to record their third album entitled "Feeding The Wolves." The highly anticipated effort will be helmed by Grammy nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf, Seether) and noted mixing specialist Chris Lord Algae will mix the singles from the album. Chris has been associated with some of the most cutting edge records in music, including songs and albums from superstars The Rolling Stones, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and more. The new album is tentatively scheduled for a late Spring release. 10 Years gained across-the-board traction with their sophomore release, Division, which garnered a host of coveted chart honors in 2008, snagging the #1 spot on iTunes' coveted rock page and the #2 position on the Top Alternative Albums chart. The tight-knit band has kept most of the details about their new album under wraps, though colorful frontman Jesse Hasek has been hailing one of the new songs entitled "Shoot It Out" at recent live shows. Bassist Lewis Cosby gives a bit of insight to the new album: "We are so proud of this music and I think that it's really going to come together with Howard at the helm. It's a completely different vibe from the last album; the tension is gone and we're gelling more than ever. The best description I can give is it's a cross between the 10 Years of our high school days and a new 10 Years that I think will surprise people. Either way, we're back and ready to rock." Universally praised for their grassroots touring regimen, past sold-out treks with Linkin Park, Shinedown and Chevelle, have helped cement 10 Years' reputation as one of rock's most formidable live outfits. Formed in 1999, the group gained notoriety with their independent release Killing All That Holds You, signing on with Universal Records in mid-decade. In 2005, their acclaimed album The Autumn Effect delivered one of 2005-2006's biggest rock radio hits with the mythic single "Wasteland." The iconic song not only set career highs for the band (certified gold along with the album's other hit, "Through The Iris"), it reigned for more than a year on US rock charts achieving the #1 on Billboard's Active Rock and Modern Rock chart and garnering the #4 year-end spot on the Active Rock chart.
