10 Years en Mascot Records zullen samen het nieuwe studio-album Violent Allies op 18 september uitbrengen. Eerder dit jaar kwam de band met nieuw werk na 2,5 jaar en dit werd meteen goed opgepakt. We hebben het dan over de twee nieuwe singles The Shift en The Unknown. Op het nieuwe album probeert het trio uit Knoxville zich weer verder te ontwikkelen.

“Growth transpires over a lifetime. The process never stops. Rather, it ramps up as time passes.'”  

“We don’t ever try to recreate what we’ve done in the past,” zegt zanger Jesse Hasek . “We knew we had to challenge ourselves to see what we had in us. If it’s not stressful, you’re not challenging yourself to grow. From the beginning, music has always been therapy and an outlet. We let ourselves enjoy the process, be vulnerable, and talk about those emotions. We got back to why we love music with the maturity of where we’re at in our lives. We were able to harness that love of creating from a wiser and more developed perspective.”

“We were hard on ourselves,” geeft Brian Vodinh (gitaar, bas, zang en drums) toe “It was more intense than during records past, but it was worth it. The outcome was exactly what we wanted it to be.”
