Knoxville, Tennessee alt-rockers 10 Years are thrilled to announce that they will be hitting the road with Three Days Grace for a 21-date tour of UK and Europe in September and October later this year. They will be playing shows in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Luxembourg, Belgium, and The Netherlands. Tickets are available from here.
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 latest studio album, 2020s Violent Allies, live for the first time. Written in the Woodland Hills in Los Angeles, the band spent five weeks recording with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Halestorm, Papa Roach]. Violent Allies has amassed over 30 million streams, with the lead single “The Shift” smashing through the 10m Spotify stream barrier alone. Check out the band’s live energy in the official video for the song here.
Talking about the upcoming tour, Brian Vodinh says, “Three Days Grace has always been a band that we have admired and looked up to, so 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.”
Their wall of sound hooks and their high-octane live shows have seen them build up a phenomenally loyal following in the US. They’ve sold out countless headline shows and toured with giants such as Korn, Deftones, Stone Temple Pilots and Stone Sour to Five Finger Death Punch, A Perfect Circle and Linkin Park.
As well as songs from their latest album, they will be playing the monstrous fan-favourites and hits such as the Gold-certified Billboard Alternative #1 smash anthem “Wasteland,” the Top 5 Billboard US Mainstream Rock Songs Chart hit “Novacaine”, “The Unknown”, and “The Shift” along with countless others from their back-catalogue of multiple Top 30 Billboard albums.
Rock Sound have called their sound “built for stadiums,” Classic Rock hailed their “big, industrial-sounding crunch of guitars”, whilst Metal Hammer called 2017s (how to live) AS GHOSTS “a sheer infectious bombast” with Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and Scuzz also jumping aboard the 10 Years Juggernaut ride.
10 Years have put in the hard miles and are built for life on the road, and Europe will get the chance to experience it for the first time, in a long-time. They’re going to bring the energy, and it will feel massive.
