10 Years Premiere New Song, “Baptized in Fire”

Alt rockers 10 Years will release their sixth album, Minus the Machine, on August 7. In anticipation, the band is premiering a new song, “Baptized in Fire,” right here right now. The song is available as a bonus track on the deluxe iTunes version of Minus the Machine.

“We decided to release this song to show fans how much a song can change during the writing process,” vocalist Jesse Hasek says. “‘Baptized in Fire’ turned into what is now known as [Minus the Machine track] ‘Tightrope.'”

Check the song out below, along with the video for the album’s lead single, “Backlash,” and let us know what you think in the comments.

    10 Years consistently blend pounding rock with compelling lyrics.  All delivered with a complete artistry.  If I was only given two words to describe 10 Years, I would use ‘brutal poetry’.  One week before the new album!

    One Week before the world hears what I call “Poetry In Motion” from 10 Years. They definitely deliver music that turns you inside out, &  just when you think its safe to catch your breath, 10 Years hits you again.

    Man that opening line is killer. If this only a b-side, I can’t imagine how good the rest is going to be. I just wish it was about 2 minutes longer…
