0 Years continue what has been a highly industrious 2015 for the group with the release of their next single, the title track off their new album, 'From Birth To Burial', which impacts radio on Tuesday, August 11th. The band is currently headlining the "When The Sky Cracks Open" Tour with Nonpoint, Awaken The Empire, and The Family Ruin in tow.
Following that 10 Years will spend much of the Fall playing direct support to Breaking Benjamin, whose new album topped the Billboard 200 charts earlier this Summer. The band is also slated to play a handful of festival dates, including Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY and the Shiprocked Cruise out of Miami and through Costa Maya, Mexico.
From Birth To Burial, the second full-length platter issued through the band’s own Palehorse imprint, is the most diverse, dark and unabashedly heavy offering from the post-grunge songsmiths. 10 Years blessed the world with Top 5 radio anthems like “Shoot It Out,” “Beautiful” and their breakthrough single, the Alt-Rock #1 “Wasteland.” From Birth To Burial represents the sum total of over a decade of experience, channeled through exceptionally authentic rock music as timeless as it is loud.
“This album is about a decade long journey and all of the emotions that come along with it,” explains frontman Jesse Hasek. “It’s easy to become jaded. But then there’s the question: When will you will stand up and fight? Are you still alive or is it all over? Do you focus on the positive? From Birth To Burial is a rollercoaster ride through all of that.”

Los Angeles based Extreme Metal band Urilia has announced the pre-order of their debut EP "The Adversarial Light" which will be released onAugust 11th.
Check Out Urilia's "I Am Nephilim" (Official Lyric Video) From "The Adversarial Light" EP Below:
The goal of this EP was to create a sound that combines a blend of European-style Metal with American Metal, ranging from Symphonic Black Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Groove Metal, and all other forms of Extreme Metal. This fusion of hard-hitting brutality will annihilate viewers with fast speed picking riffs and heavy breakdowns, mixed with eerie symphonic/apocalyptic orchestrated keyboards. Produced, mixed, and mastered by Mick Kenney, the mastermind behind Anaal Nathrakh, who also worked with artists such as Bleeding Through, Motionless in White, The Witch Was Right, Suffer Well, and much more. This album is perfect for fans of all sub-genres of Metal.
The overall message behind this EP is to educate our fans on dark spirituality, and how to utilize Left Hand Path energy to cultivate the inner strength and wisdom that is too often lost within a modern society that undervalues authenticity and personal power, and serves to keep us bound by pervasive and limiting cultural norms, narrow-mindedness, and corruption. The Adversarial Light is also based on one of the many books written by Occult writer/leader of the 'Order of Phosphorus', Michael W. Ford, based on the Luciferian Path.
We hope everyone enjoys this EP, and that the power in the message inspires our fans to continue growing and breaking free. - Kristof Bathory (Urilia)
