10 Years Embrace the Aggressive and Ethereal Nature of ‘Ghosts’
With an album titled (how to live) As Ghosts, 10 Years definitely pique our interest and conjure up a visual. Now fans can get a little more context to that intriguing title as the group just unleashed an audio clip of the title track "Ghosts" from the disc.
After starting off with forceful guitars, the song pulls back into a more ethereal sound with Jesse Hasek's hypnotic and more melodic vocal, befitting of the title "Ghosts." But while the verses are more subdued, 10 Years pick up the pace in the chorus. "Stop trying to show / How to save our souls / It takes time to know / How to Live as Ghosts," belts Hasek over a more aggressive wall of guitars, later adding, "You're running through the motions of the emotionless." All in all, it's a song that finds that perfect blend between heavy aggression and more subdued moments.
Meanwhile, the mostly static photo that they've chosen to accompany the audio player of the song features a floating women's silhouette with forested tree tops projected on her body.
"Ghosts" follows on the heels of their current radio hit, "Novacaine," which has steadily climbed the charts in recent months. The video for the track debuted here at Loudwire earlier this year. Both songs are featured on the (how to live) As Ghosts album, which is on target for an Oct. 27 street date via Mascot. You can pre-order the album via Amazon and iTunes or through their PledgeMusic pre-order. The group is currently in the midst of a tour and you can find all of their dates here.
