10 Years release brand new song

10 Years announce brand new song "The Optimist"
On tour in the UK & Europe with Three Days Grace now!

Knoxville, Tennessee alt-rockers 10 Years are thrilled to reveal the video for their brand-new song, "The Optimist," today as they begin their UK and European tour with Three Days Grace in Cardiff, Wales. "The Optimist" is released via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group. Watch the video ⬇️

Cardiff is the first of a 21-date tour with Canadian rockers Three Days Grace, which will see them play shows in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Luxembourg, Belgium, and The Netherlands.

The new song is a three-minute hook-fest of crunching riffs and earworm chorus with the 10 Years DNA running through it. The video shows their life on the road, from euphoric club shows and enormous festival stages to the band hanging around on off days, to give you a behind-the-curtain view to life on the road.

Talking about the track, Brian Vodinh says. "The Optimist riff first began as an improvised jam in-between songs at a live show. Sometimes the band would randomly improvise on stage, and the song's main riff happened by a happy accident one night, and then we decided to turn that little moment into a proper song. The lyrics are about how life can beat you down, but you must keep searching for ways to push on and not let it make you too cynical. It's about the fight to keep a good perspective on things."

The tour will be the first time the band have played in Europe since 2018, and it gives fans the chance to hear songs from their most recent studio album, 2020s Violent Allies, live for the first time.

Talking about the upcoming tour, Vodinh says, "Three Days Grace has always been a band that we have admired. Being able to not only share the stage with them but to have the opportunity to play in front of the amazing, music-hungry fans of Europe again is a dream come true for us. The fans in Europe are so passionate, and they dig deeper than the surface with our music which is always something we have loved about them."
