10 Years, ‘From Birth to Burial’ – Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere + Contest
10 Years are ready to go deeper into their From Birth to Burial album by unleashing the title track, and they've teamed with Loudwire to give you this exclusive first look at the lyric video for the song.
A listen to the track reveals one of the more unique sounding songs in the band's catalog, opening with what sounds like backward masked guitars. Painting a dark and haunting atmosphere, the song builds from its moody start, with tribal percussion and frontman Jesse Hasek's intensifying vocals raising the stakes, with the point really hitting home with the chorus, "We're dying in stereo / From birth to burial."
Of the song, Hasek says, "The title track 'From Birth To Burial' is one of our favorite songs to play live. We got an immediate reaction from the crowd when we start playing it on tour even before the album released." The track is slated to impact radio on Aug. 11.
As for the entire disc, Hasek adds, “This album is about a decade long journey and all of the emotions that come along with it. It’s easy to become jaded. But then there’s the question: When will you will stand up and fight? Are you still alive or is it all over? Do you focus on the positive? From Birth To Burial is a roller-coaster ride through all of that.”
Earlier this year, 10 Years debuted the lead single "Miscellanea" right here at Loudwire. The song spent a good portion of the spring and early summer on the Active Rock charts, and now they're moving on to "From Birth to Burial." The group is currently in the midst of a North American tour supporting the album that, first joining Nonpoint, Awaken the Empire and the Family Ruin, then serving as direct support on dates with Breaking Benjamin. That will be followed by more October dates in Australia and an appearance early next year on the ShipRocked Cruise. To see all of their dates, go here.
Along with unleashing the new lyric video, 10 Years are teaming up with Loudwire to offer a one-of-a-kind drumhead, painted by frontman Jesse Hasek.
