Launch Radio Networks reports: 10 YEARS has revealed on its MySpace page that the band will not tour anymore for the rest of the year, opting instead to begin working on its next album. Singer Jesse Hasek told Launch that the band has been toying with song ideas during its last few months on the road, but now has to focus on piecing them together. "It's very difficult to go through a whole song structure when all your gear is packed up in the trailer, and honestly, after you play five out of seven days, sometimes you just want to sit," he said. "So, yeah, we need to definitely get in a room and hash it out. We work well together when we have a confined area with no distractions. That's when we really, really work hard."

Guitarist Matt Wantland posted on MySpace that the band was about to begin the writing process for its next CD, adding, "We have grown and changed in so many ways in (these) past 18 months, everything you have taught us, shown us, admitted to us, asked of us, has been building inside of us, and is about to be released through strings and drums and words."

Wantland also thanked the group's fans for sticking with the band and buying "over 400,000 copies" of its debut disc, "The Autumn Effect".

10 YEARS finished up its 18 months on the road with a slot on this past summer's Family Values tour, alongside KORN, DEFTONES and others.

"The Autumn Effect" featured the singles "Wasteland", "Through The Iris" and "Waking Up".

They should just stop all together. They really suck. To quote an individual when they were on tour with the great Sevendust. "They should call them 9 months because their just a bunch of pregnant b****es.

Allele are an okay band. It has I think just one guy from Cold, but they're not the greatest band. 32 Leaves I think are pretty good though. With 10 Years the only song that I really listen to at all is "Wasteland." But I will admit that the singer has a good singing voice but their songs just don't stick to me.
