Tennessee alt-metallers 10 Years have released a stream of Ghosts, taken from their upcoming (How To Live) As Ghosts album, the follow-up to 2015’s From Birth To Burial. The album will be released on October 27.

“As the title track of the album, Ghosts is a track that needles a familiar thread for the band,” says guitarist/drummer Brian Vodinh. “It’s essentially a song about growth and progression with one of the lyrics stating, ‘it takes dying to know how to live as ghosts.’ Much like how humans personally progress, the band has also evolved and is refreshed and reinvigorated and pushing forward almost like ghosts of the former incarnation of the band.”

The new record was produced by Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with the likes of Korn, Mastodon, Black Star Riders, Ghost and Alice In Chains. The album also sees the return of guitarist and drummer Brian Vodinh and guitarist Matt Wantland.

“It’s funny,” says Hasek. “I named our last record From Birth To Burial because I thought it was our final record. It just didn’t feel like 10 Years without Brian and Matt – and having them back is really a reunion of the core writing team. This new record actually feels like a real rebirth for the band!”

10 Years released a stream of Novocaine in August, and are currently on tour in the US (dates below).
