SEVENDUST, 10 YEARS To Team Up For 'HardDrive Live' Tour

August 6, 2010

According to The Pulse of Radio, SEVENDUST and 10 YEARS will lead the lineup of the second annual HardDrive Live tour, with SINCE OCTOBER and ANEW REVOLUTION also appearing on the bill. Dates and venues will be unveiled on Monday, August 16. Last year's inaugural tour, sponsored by the nationally syndicated rock radio program "HardDrive", featured All THAT REMAINS, LACUNA COIL and others. Info on tickets, VIP packages, meet-and-greet passes and other details for this year are yet to be unveiled.

SEVENDUST and 10 YEARS have shared some wild times on the road in years past, but 10 YEARS singer Jesse Hasek told The Pulse of Radio his band is a little more mellow on tour these days. "In our experience and our age — we're getting a little bit older — you realize that this is a business and you can't jeopardize the performance by partying too much," he said. "For me, being the vocalist, I've really found the line. I can't do that stuff every night and expect to get up there and perform to the, my capabilities and everything."

"Cold Day Memory", the new album from SEVENDUST, sold around 27,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 12 on the Billboard 200 chart.

SEVENDUST's previous album, "Chapter VII: Hope and Sorrow", opened with 25,000 units back in April 2008 to land at position No. 19.

"Cold Day Memory" was released on April 20 on the band's own 7Bros. Records, through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group. The CD — produced by Grammy Award winner Johnny K (DISTURBED, STAIND, 3 DOORS DOWN, PLAIN WHITE T'S) — is the group's first new album with its original lineup back together with guitarist Clint Lowery's return after his departure in 2003

10 YEARS will release its new album, "Feeding The Wolves", on August 31, but the first single, "Shoot It Out", is already on the radio now. The title of the record is actually taken from a line in the song, which Hasek says is about the pressures the band has faced in the music business. "It's a very aggressive song and it's a little bit of angst towards just how they don't leave you alone to be the musicians you are," he tells The Pulse of Radio. "You hear it with a lot of bands, the whole 'jaded' scenario, but it's true, because we're a bunch of musicians that were writing music all on our own with no outside sources affecting us. And then you get, it turns into a profession and you get pulled in all sorts of directions. And we just said, 'Enough's enough, we're just gonna do what we want.'"

The band recently promised that "Feeding The Wolves" will be "the heaviest album they've made in nearly a decade."

SINCE OCTOBER recently released its sophomore effort, "Life, Scars, Apologies", which features the single "The Way You Move".
