- 10 Years have unleashed a new video for the song "Burnout" which serves as a not-so-veiled reference to their split with guitarist Ryan "Tater" Johnson. The clip finds the band playing inside a lighted circle, while someone watches on from outside upset by the exclusion. Brian Vodinh tells Billboard, "It's talking about someone who was in the circle for a long time, then is all of a sudden out of the circle. It's not really meant to be ugly; Because we had just gotten out of that situation it was something that was just on our minds and very much a part of the early writing sessions of this album, so it naturally made its way into the songwriting a bit. And I think the video is an honest depiction of the song and why we wrote it." Watch the video here.
