‘Minus the Machine’ tour kicks off June 27 in New Orleans

Knoxville, Tenn.-based hard rock quartet 10 Years have announced they will release their latest full-length, “Minus the Machine,” on July 17 via their own label, Palehorse Records, in partnership with Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group. The set is the first on the band’s new label, and singer Jesse Hasek says that by releasing the album independently, the guys were able to stretch their creative wings in the studio.

“We wanted to create an album that has no boundaries,” Hasek said in an official statement. “When you feel like you’re being told to go through motions and jump through hoops, it takes the heart out of it. It’s better to do what comes naturally and then figure out the after-effect.”

10 Years have also announced the “Minus the Machine” tour in support of the new album, which will set off on June 27 in New Orleans. Fair to Midland and Kyng will open for four-week tour, which wraps up July 22 in Sauget, Ill. Find a full list of tour dates, below.

Following a lengthy trek in support of the group’s last disc, “Feeding the Wolves,” the guys hit the studio, and they’re more than ready to get back on tour and hang with the fans. “We live and die by the loyalty of the club audiences. Our fans are loyal. They travel with us, and they want us to be loyal to ourselves,” Hasek said. “What we tried to do on this album is really give them what they want because they’ve been so good to us through the ups and downs of our career.” (Photo via Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group.)
