10 Years have premiered a new song titled “The Shift.” You can find a lyric video for that below:
Jesse Hasek commented:
“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.”
Brian Vodinh added:
“Lyrically, it’s about the polarization of society and the human impact on the earth itself. We were thinking about how humans can be a virus to the earth. It reflects the state of divisiveness in the world. Everything is so political. Everyone is angry at each other. We’re better when we come together.”
“After all of this time, 10 YEARS is a brotherhood. I’ve spent the better half of my life accomplishing what I never thought was possible with these guys. It’s been an unexplainable, crazy, and awesome journey since Brian first asked me to join the band on his 19th birthday. We’ve beat the odds and continue to live life.
It bothers me when people don’t try to push themselves to enjoy what life has to offer. Life is beautiful, if you really go for it and try. It can show you beauty — and that’s what this band has shown me.”

10 Years have premiered a new video for their song “Burnout.” This track is from the band’s latest album “(How To Live) As Ghosts.”
The clip references the group’s split with Ryan “Tater” Johnson, and Brian Vodinh told Billboard the following about it:
“It’s talking about someone who was in the circle for a long time, then is all of a sudden out of the circle. It’s not really meant to be ugly; Because we had just gotten out of that situation it was something that was just on our minds and very much a part of the early writing sessions of this album, so it naturally made its way into the songwriting a bit. And I think the video is an honest depiction of the song and why we wrote it.”
