Launch Radio Networks reports: 10 YEARS drummer Brian Vodinh has posted an update at the band's MySpace page about the progress of their second album. He indicated that the group has written 30 to 40 songs and is looking for a new producer after the initial production team didn't work out. As for the new material, Vodinh wrote, "We have punk rock songs that will make your neck cramp from trying to do that real quick punk head-bang type thing, to happy sounding poppy love songs that will make you wanna dance around in a field of really big flowers...I really feel pretty confident in saying that we have run the gamut of musical genres with all the material we have written."

Vodinh also indicated that the band has had "knock-down drag-out fights" with its management, in addition to dealing with a record label that is "just simply confusing," all of which has contributed to "building tension within the band."

He added that while "this has truly become the most difficult and confusing time in all of our lives," he promised that the results will be "the strongest 10 YEARS you will ever see" and "the best record we can possibly make."

The band was at one point slated to begin recording in February.

The next 10 YEARS outing will follow up 2005's "The Autumn Effect", which featured the singles "Wasteland", "Through The Iris" and "Waking Up".

10 Years is a really good band. I wonder the same thing bassmaster! wonders. Does anybody else listen to anything besides metal? Unless it's metal, and usually only black or death metal, people will post saying how much the band sucks. And even with death or black metal, some people will say how much that certain band sucks for whatever reason. If you don't care about a band, don't say stupid sh** on the comments for no reason. Just keep listening to that same Behemoth album over and over, afraid to listen to anything else.

I'll think you'll find they do, but if the people here are anything like me anything that falls short of metal is shunned, where as something like Ambient music or Jazz is enjoyable because they're not bastardizing metal in the proccess unlike countless "metal" bands that come out today. Bottom line this is a metal site named is metal underground - Can you blame people for coming here and slandering non-metal bands?

And so... Now Playing: Neptune Towers - "First Communion. Mode- Direct"

bassmaster!-- yes, i do listen to many other genres of music besides metal. and though metal may be my favorite, i do not limit myself to just metal. there's great music in almost every genre, you just have to know where to look. i always keep an open mind and i at least give every band one listen before i rip on them.

with that said, ive never liked Ten Years. ive seen them live once and was utterly unimpressed. they're too generic and seem to be another label spawn: manufactured and boring.

Actually the Autumn Effect is a great album, but I liked it because it WAS NOT happy pop sh!t. So this is quite upsetting in my book. Another band with good potential washing away in the money stream....

10 years is shxt, and so is any one who likes them. I will kick the fvcking face off of any 10 years fan because they like getting forcefully butt-raped. 10 Years is gay. They should all just commit mass suicide because nobody one the face of the Earth wants to hear 10 years except for 10 years. It's garbage. It doesn't even matter that this is a metal website. sh** is sh** no matter how you dress it up. Bad music is bad music. 10 years is bad music. just because i hate 10 years doesn't mean that I listen to ONLY metal. I would like to say that I only listen to GOOD MUSIC, and I'm sorry, 10 Years fans, but these guys certainly DO NOT fall into that category.

Fvck you, fvck 10 years, and if anyone else wants to talk sh**, then you admit that you defend one of the worst and unimaginative bands ever. I mean just as bad as Breaking Benjamin or Chevelle or Three Days Grace. Just anther cookie cutter suburban rock band. These guys had nothing to b**** about growing up, so they make up the most ridiculous sh**. At least bands like Korn are being HONEST. Even MCR is better than 10 Years.

And they DO NOT have potential, they DO NOT have great albums, and actually, I don't really like BEHEMOTH.

So quit looking for excuses as to why your MTV friendly band is on a metal site. They post it because they know we'll tear it to shreds, and that goes for anyone who defends it.

I think you answered your own question, there, d1ckface.

If you need reminders of my feelings, all you have to do is scroll up and read the part where I typed "I will kick the fvcking face off of any 10 years fan because they like getting forcefully butt-raped."

Also the part where I typed "Fvck you, fvck 10 years, and if anyone else wants to talk sh**, then you admit that you defend one of the worst and unimaginative bands ever." That part, too.

So, as you see, I don't want to kick your face "in" as you put it, but rather "off" so as to render you unattractive and unable to breed so you can't create children that might grow up to like lame-ass, radio-tailored fag-rock.

Hey, you asked, and now you're gonna try to talk down on me for stickin' to my guns? At least I didn't punk out and say "Oh, Mr. Theories, you are the exception, as 10 Years MUST be a great band because you, the king of METAL, enjoys them!"

You're obviously not THAT metal if you support this garbage. This sh1t barely passes as music.

You're the one that came on here asking if my rule applied to you, too, so quit coming on here looking like some martyr trying to build a fvcking fan club.

You're a twat and you listen to trash.

Good music is good music whether it be black metal (Behemoth) or rock (10 Years). With that said however, 10 Years isn't very good. I've seen them as openers twice and they were boring throughout the majority of their set.

Ten Years may not be Tool in the creative department, but seriously MCR? Who's having gender issues now? If ANY rock band is the definition of commercial it's MCR.

lol, im talking down to you, because you continuously want to sound like a 14 year old because of a band you dont like. I cant stand korn, slipknot, the deftones, I cant stand 99% of hardcore music, theres alot of bands in each genre I like and dislike. I still enjoy Bush, Im pissing myself on the Rage re-unoin, and I own every Alice in Chains Cd ever made. Does that make me less metal, I think not. But at least I spend more of my time giving back to my music, and its fans then trashing every1 who doesnt agree on everyband.

Yeah, because changing your s/n and talking more sh** makes you more metal.

Okay, so what you do is get all pissy with post #1 with holysh** about HIS dislike for your boyfriend's band. Actually, you can cry to post #2 as well. Terminator doesn't seem to like 10 Years, either. Hmm...that means that you're gonna b**** and cry to ME about how nobody likes your band. It's like 12 year old girls arguing over who's better Backstreet Boys or Nsync. They're both sh**, and no matter how much you argue with me, it's not going to make me respect 10 years any more. And I honestly think you're retarded for liking them. And Bush? Since Bush has ever existed, the only people that ever liked them were too young to buy REAL music.

I understand why you're arguing with me, because music is intensely personal, and everyone connects to their influences in a different way, but what you're doing here is pointless. It's like trying to talk someone into liking 36 Crazyfists. It's useless, and you're only making yourself look more retatded. It's like a kid with down syndrome explaining why he REALLY, REALLY, likes Sesame Street.

10 Years sucks now and forever, and even though MCR does, too, they still f***ing OWN 10 Years. Don't hate 'em just because the lead singer wears makeup and dresses funny. David Bowie did that and changed music forever. At least MCR knows what rhythm and melody are.
