10 Years have released a new single called "The Shift". It's our first taste of their upcoming new album.
According to Blabbermouth, the band recorded the new record with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson. He previously worked with the guys on their 2010 release "Feeding The Wolves".
Vocalist Jesse Hasek had this to say about the evolution of the band's sound and message as they move forward:
"We don't ever try to recreate what we've done in the past. 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.
"While in the studio last fall, we were looking at the state of the world as we wrote 'The Shift'.
"As a society, we're so distracted that we're not united. When the pandemic happened, it became so important to finally see the positivity of humanity. We've realized we're all in this together. You can pick a side, but we're sitting in the same realm."
A release date for the album is uncertain. The band says that touring plans normally inform an album release date. With live music on hold at the moment, release plans for the album are on hold as well. For now, check out the official lyric video for "The Shift" below.
