Presented by Universal Republic Records
Biography: 10 Years
Knoxville, TN's 10 Years formed in 2002 around vocalist Jesse Hasek, drummer Brian Vodinh, guitarists Matt Wantland and Tater, and bassist Lewis Cosby. The band released the Killing All That Holds You EP themselves a year later, and started to develop a local following for its Tool- and Deftones-influenced alt-metal. Killing All That Holds You was eventually expanded with four additional studio tracks and some live acoustic material. 10 Years signed with Republic/Universal, and in August 2005 their major-label debut appeared. Autumn Effect was produced by Josh Abraham (Staind, Static-X), and led to a 10 Years tour with Disturbed that ran through the fall. The album made some impact thanks to the single "Wasteland," setting up their next album, 2008's Division, which peaked at 12 on the Billboard charts with the first single, "Beautiful," reaching number six on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
