10 Years Unveil Cover Art For New Album “Minus The Machine” Available July 31

“MINUS THE MACHINE TOUR” KICKS OFF JUNE 27 WITH BRIAN VODINH RETURNING TO DRUMS

With their new album Minus The Machine hitting stores July 31, Knoxville’s 10 Years is excited to reveal the album’s cover art in advance of the tour.

The band will kick off the “Minus the Machine” headlining tour on June 27 in New Orleans, supported by Fair to Midland and KYNG. They’re hitting over 20 cities nationwide including a date in their hometown of Knoxville, and a handful of festivals like Rockfest and Summerjam. They will be touring to support the release of the new album, and they’re excited to play some new songs this time around. This year, the band is playing Rocklahoma, sharing the bill with artists like Rob Zombie, Chevelle, Slash, and Creed.

After a solid and successful two years of Brian Vodinh touring as the band’s guitarist, he is looking forward to returning to the drum kit. Brian announces, “even though I started the band with the intention of playing guitar, for some reason drums have been always been the heartbeat of my thought process for the songwriting. After touring for more than two years with me playing guitar, we collectively decided that it felt like the heartbeat had just changed a little and it was time to pump that old blood back into the veins of 10 Years. I will be returning to the drum kit with a renewed passion and drive and with the release of Minus the Machine, our fans are in for the most emotional and energetic album and live show they have ever seen from us.” This tour is shaping up to be an experience that no 10 Years fan would want to miss.

Minus the Machine will be the band’s fifth studio album, following their successful 2010 release Feeding The Wolves,which broke into the Billboard Top 200 list at #12. Billboard proclaims “10 Years hits a sweet spot between rock and metal” and Outburn declares the band “succeeds at making solid rock songs with subtle unique touches and nuances.”

The band will release their new record on their own Palehorse Records in conjunction with Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group. The album marks the band’s first release on their own label after a long tenure at Universal. 10 Years frontman Jesse Hasek explains the decision to release the album independently, saying “We wanted to create an album that has no boundaries.” He continues, “When you feel like you’re being told to go through motions and jump through hoops, it takes the heart out of it. It’s better to do what comes naturally and then figure out the after-effect.”
