Knoxville, TN Rockers 10 YEARS are set to release their new album “(how to live) As Ghosts” on October 27th via Mascot Records! Now the band has unleashed the video for “Novacaine”, watch it below.
Singer Jesse Hasek about the video:
“The song ‘Novacaine’ was inspired by how the repetition of life can numb you no matter how high or low the peaks and valleys are if you keep going through life doing the same thing over and over. The video is like the movie Groundhog Day or the Day After Tomorrow about someone living their life on a loop. The main character seems to have it all materialistically speaking (fancy car, a nice urban loft, and a well-paying job), but he finds himself stuck in a dream living the same day over and over where the same strangers keep telling him ‘your dead as dead can be.’ If we never get out of our comfort zone or pop our safety bubble, then we’re not living life to its full potential.”
Sometimes when band members reunite, it’s as if no time has passed and nothing has changed. That couldn’t be further from the truth for 10 Years. And, that’s a good thing. When guitarist/drummer Brian Vodinh and guitarist Matt Wantland returned to the Knoxville, Tennessee alt-metal/post-grunge band for their eighth album and
Mascot Records debut, “(how to live) AS GHOSTS”, they burst through their comfort zones to create something new. Something better. Something career-defining.
“It’s funny, I named our last record, [2015’s] From Birth to Burial, because I thought it was our final record because it just didn’t feel like 10 Years without Brian and Matt. But having them back is really a reunion of the core writing team and this new record actually feels like a real rebirth for the band,” says singer Jesse Hasek.
