Knoxville rockers 10 Years has a brand-new song out in ‘I Remember’ released now as a single via Mascot Records.
“’I Remember’ is about looking back at our youth and remembering how it felt like we had our entire lives in front of us.” said guitarist Brian Vodinh. “How we were full of hope and ambition and kind of clueless to how harsh the real world is. It’s about remembering how we used to always look at the bright side and weren’t so beaten up by life.”
The release follows the isolated reveal of ‘The Optimist’ that since being released has been streamed over nine million times. It dropped as the band’s European and UK tour with Three Days Grace in September last year kicked off and was an immediate crowd-favourite, as fans were singing back all of the words, mere days after it had been released. ‘I Remember’ promises to connect in the same vein.
It is only the second new song from the band since their 2020 album Violent Allies. Since the release of that album, they have toured with the likes of Three Days Grace, Seether, Theory Of A Deadman and Crobot as well as multiple headline runs and festivals, including Inkcarceration Festival, Shiprocked and Blue Ridge Rock Festival.
Since forming in 1999, 10 Years – featuring Jesse Hasek (Lead vocals), Brian Vodinh (Guitar, backing vocals), Matt Wantland (Guitar), Chad Grennor (Bass) and Luke Narey (Drums) – has quietly pushed themselves and modern rock towards evolution. Building a formidable catalogue, the group’s gold-selling 2005 breakthrough The Autumn Effect spawned the hit ‘Wasteland’, that went gold, infiltrated the Billboard Hot 100, and clinched #1 at Active Rock Radio and #1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. They landed three Top 30 entries on the Billboard Top 200 with Division (2008), Feeding The Wolves (2010), and Minus The Machine (2012).
Most recently, 2017’s (How To Live) As Ghosts reunion not only smashed into the Top 5 of the US Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, but it also provided the hit ‘Novacaine’. The single ascended to the Top 5 of the Billboard US Mainstream Rock Songs Chart and had over 40 million streams across all platforms. The album has gone on to have over 70 million plays. Along the way, they sold out countless headline shows and toured with everyone from Korn, Deftones, and Stone Sour to Chris Cornell and Linkin Park. The band’s most recent studio album Violent Allies, was recorded with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Halestorm, Papa Roach). The record has amassed over 45 million streams.
