10 Years have premiered a new video for their song “The Shift.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Violent Allies,“ which will be released on September 18. The group said the following:
“We have all been missing the stage so much, and ‘The Shift‘ is one of those songs that was built for the energy of the live show. Since we can’t be out on the road right now, we wanted to visually escape back to the days of touring, and bring that energy to the video.”
10 Years have premiered a visualizer for their new song “The Unknown.” This track is from the band’s new album “Violent Allies,” which will be released on September 18.
Jesse Hasek said the following about the song:
“We’re in a wide-open world we’ve created, but we have to step back and look at where we are and adapt. We’re all in the unknown right now.”
He also added the following about the album:
“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.”
Brian Vodinh continued:
“We were hard on ourselves. It was more intense than during records past, but it was worth it. The outcome was exactly what we wanted it to be. Time spent in the studio or simply collaborating on our vision was a catalyst in reaching creative clarity like we’ve never had before. It reminded all three of us that this bond created over the last two decades is best served when individual voices becomes collective vision. It was fun, because we were back to being brothers. No matter how frustrated we might get, once we looked out at it, the energy was unexplainable. Our mission was to really connect with the songs, break them down, and build them back up.”
“The younger versions of us would’ve been going to Hollywood every night and partying. It was different. We actually came up with a lot of ideas, melody tweaks, and had really good brainstorming sessions in the car on the PCH. The whole vibe contributed to what the record is. All we cared about was writing and recording the best songs we possibly could. We felt like we had something to prove, especially to our A&R guy and the president of North America for Mascot Ron Burman.”
“We came back to this quote, ‘There’s a strange power in the joining of unlike things’. There is something incredibly special about how we create. ‘Violent Allies‘ is the perfect way to summarize it. We go through hell facing all challenges head-on, but the final product is worth it. Simultaneously, 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 though.”

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 will be releasing a new single titled “The Shift” on Friday (May 15). The track is expected to appear on their upcoming album. In other news, the band have also shared a quarantine cover of Deftones‘ “Digital Bath“:
