Having put out their album, (How To Live) As Ghosts just under twelve months ago, Tennesse rockers 10 Years are back in the UK for a short UK tour and off the back of a successful appearance at Download Festival earlier this year and a Canadian run with Shinedown. Given the past few months for the band, it all makes this run a little more intimate for the Canadians but, as we found out at the Factory in Manchester, there is nothing like being in the kind of venue where you can see the sweat dripping off the band.

Don’t get us wrong, we love big massive over-the-top arena shows but, at the end of the day, if you love your rock music, you’ll surely agree that checking out a band in a venue like this is absolutely the best thing ever. 10 Years make sure they deliver as well, airing a good few tracks from the aforementioned (How To Live) As Ghosts disc, tracks like opener “Halos”, “Burnout” and “Novacaine”, are greeted like familiar favourites while their rendition of “Heart Shaped Box” by Nirvana is a nice touch. The rockers end the set with “Through The Iris” from 2004’s Killing All That Holds You and “Miscellanea” from their seventh album 2015’s From Birth To Burial.
UK fans have waited a fair length of time for these US rockers to return for a full UK tour and, unsurprisingly, off the back of some extensive US touring, the band were on form and certainly gave these fans value for money.
