Though they formed nearly a decade after alternative metal dominated the music charts, the Tennessee-based band 10 Years continues to fuse heavy metal with grunge.
They will take the stage at Buffalo Run’s Peoria Showplace tonight — doors open at 7 p.m.
Band members include: Jesse Hasek (lead vocals), Matt Wantland (guitar) and Brian Vodinh (guitar), among others. They have released seven albums, including 2017’s “(How to Live) As Ghosts.”
The song “Wasteland,” from the 2005 album “The Autumn Effect,” spent 12-plus months on the rock charts, even reaching No. 1. Other popular songs include “Dead in the Water,” “Shoot It Out,” “Fix Me” and, most recently, “Novacaine.”
“Six albums and a hundred songs in, I wondered if I’ve already written my best stuff,” Hasek said of “Novacaine” on the band’s official website. “But at some point, you start to get real adult problems. Life has such a numbing to it. You see people go from such optimism in their 20s to having life just beat them down later. I think we all kind of get desensitized and numb to life on some level. That’s what this song is about.”
The band has toured with the likes of Disturbed, Korn, Breaking Benjamin and Sevendust.
Tickets are $25.
