10 Years Goes Indie, Sort Of

Knoxville modern-rock headliners 10 Years are making a switch for their next album, due out on July 17. After three albums on major label Universal, the band will release Minus the Machine on its own Palehorse Records, a subsidiary of Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group.

"We wanted to create an album that has no boundaries," 10 Years frontman Jesse Hasek says in a press release, explaining the title of the new disc. "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 will wrap up its tour in support of the 2010 album Feed the Wolves in May, and then head back on the road to promote Minus the Machine. They will headline a hometown performance at the Valarium on July 6.
