10 Years, ‘Novacaine’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Need something to break up the monotony of your day? 10 Years are ready to serve up the exclusive premiere of their video for "Novacaine" right here at Loudwire.
The clip centers on a young man sitting behind the computer in an endless row of cubicles suddenly transported into a repetitive world, waking up and living out the same day with some of the passersby tipping him off that something is not quite right.
Singer Jesse Hasek tells us of the song and video, "The song 'Novacaine' was inspired by how the repetition of life can numb you no matter how high or low the peaks and valleys are if you keep going through life doing the same thing over and over. The video is like the movie Groundhog Day or the Day After Tomorrow about someone living their life on a loop. The main character seems to have it all materialistically speaking (fancy car, a nice urban loft, and a well-paying job), but he finds himself stuck in a dream living the same day over and over where the same strangers keep telling him 'your dead as dead can be.' If we never get out of our comfort zone or pop our safety bubble, then we're not living life to its full potential."
10 Years have undergone a lineup change since their last album, welcoming back some familiar faces in the process. Singer Jesse Hasek, drummer Kyle Mayer and bassist (moving over from guitar) Chad Huff are now joined by returning guitarist Matt Wantland and guitarist/drummer Brian Vodinh.
"Novacaine" is the lead single off 10 Years' (how to live) As Ghosts album. You can pre-order the disc via the band's PledgeMusic campaign ahead of the Oct. 27 street date via Mascot Records.
10 Years will return to the road this fall to support the album, kicking things off Oct. 13 in Knoxville, Tenn., and wrapping up Dec. 17 in Chicago. Along the way, they'll share stages with RED, Otherwise and Chevelle. See all of their scheduled dates listed below.
