Universal Republic Records' rock band 10 YEARS is hitting the studio this month to record its 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" Alge (GREEN DAY, B.B. KING, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, BAD RELIGION) will mix the singles from the album. A late spring release is expected.
10 YEARS has kept most of the details about its 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."
10 YEARS's sophomore effort, "Division", was released in May 2008. The group spent over a year writing and recording the follow-up to its 2005 debut, "The Autumn Effect", scrapping some initial work with one producer and starting over with another.
10 YEARS ultimately recorded the album with producer Rick Parashar, who worked on PEARL JAM's classic 1991 debut, "Ten".
One tune on "Division", titled "Focus", was co-written with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and ARMY OF ANYONE guitarist Dean DeLeo.
The video for the album's first single, "Beautiful" (see below), took a satirical look at what a press release called "the lengths the paparazzi and celebrities go through to notice each other in the current 'Gotcha!' game of celebrity journalism."
