10 Years - Violent Allies Colored Vinyl LP
10 Years Violent Allies Colored Vinyl LP
Growth is a process that never stops. Rather, it ramps up as time passes. 10 Years accelerate this cycle on their ninth full-length album, Violent Allies. In 2019 the gold-certified Knoxville, TN alternative hard rock trio spent five weeks with Grammy Award-winning producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Halestorm, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace), and what resulted was a record that shows the band's progress as a unit as they embrace heightened vulnerability, elevated song craft, and sonic adventurousness.
"We don't ever try to recreate what we've done in the past," explains vocalist Jesse Hasek. "We knew we had to challenge ourselves to see what we had in us. We let ourselves enjoy the process, be vulnerable, and talk about those emotions. We were able to harness that love of creating from a wiser and more developed perspective."
This advanced outlook is displayed on first single "The Shift." "While in the studio last fall, we were looking at the state of the world as we wrote ‘The Shift'," Jesse reveals. "As a society, we're so distracted that we're not united. When the pandemic happened we realized we're all in this together." "Lyrically, it's about the polarization of society and the human impact on the earth itself," adds guitarist Brian Vodinh.
