Guitarist Matt Wantland said, “I’m genuinely excited to get back to Europe; we haven’t been able to make the journey since around 2008. So much of my favorite music and culture was born, and lives, in that part of the world. I want to share in that energy, and I want them to share it back with us. Travel and new experiences are what help you grow as a human being, as a person, and as a band I don’t think there’s a better opportunity than this to grow personally and professionally and to push us to a new level. We’ve always felt Europe is a place we should be spending more of our time.”
The first single from the album, ‘Novacaine,’ has received over 4.8 million plays on Spotify, with the combined streams for the album exceeding 10.5 million streams. The video has been viewed over 1.3 million times and was playlisted at Scuzz and Kerrang TV as well as the song being playlisted at Planet Rock and Kerrang Radio. With the release of this video, and over half a million streams to date, ‘Burnout’ follows in its footsteps to being on it’s way to becoming a global hit.
10 Years returned in October 2017 with the new studio album (how to live) AS GHOSTS, and welcomed back former members Brian Vodinh (guitar / drums) and Matt Wantland (guitar) alongside Chad Huff (bass), Kyle Mayer (drums) and Jesse Hasek (vocals). The band’s eighth studio album was produced by the Grammy Award winning Nick Raskulinecz (Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Deftones, KoRn, Mastodon).
