Made up of Adam Bones on guitar/vocals and Rikki Styxx on drums/backing vocals, the duo’s DIY pursuits were funded the old-fashioned way: hard work, playing local gigs and selling handmade custom merch. After releasing their four EPs digitally, the band spearheaded a very successful PledgeMusic campaign to release the full-length on CD, so impressing Man Della Records in the process that the label stepped up to release Volume on 12-inch clear vinyl.
Since then, The Two Tens have signed with Man Della, and released their second album, On Repeat, on 8/18/17. For On Repeat they tracked 3 songs in Minneapolis with producer John Fields (Dollyrots, Andrew WK, Pink), including “Keeping Hope Alive,” the lead-off single released on 2/10/17. The LP was finished in Los Angeles with the Volume team of producer Bruce Duff and engineer Paul Roessler, with Fields mixing.
Currently, The Two Tens are set to release a split EP with punk rock legends, the Queers, on ProRawk Records (USA) & SBAM (Europe). The 4-song split comes out on 9/18/20 and includes 2 brand new recordings from each band.
