Southern Illinois Takes Its Metal TEN STORY High
Ten Story Delivers Ten Fold
Southern Illinois is home to modern metal machine, Ten Story. The quintet was formed a decade ago by guitarist Kyle Morse and drummer Brad Dutton. Joining in the fray are vocalist Jake Miller, guitarist Josh Chapman and newest member, bassist Luke Fager.
Ten Story seeks to meld together modern rock and metal elements with driving rhythms, memorable melodies, massive vocal harmonies, and powerful riffs.
Speaking to the band’s success is the fact that Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery is working with Ten Story as it writes and records its new album Ten Stories High due out in early 2013. Rumor has it they are also working with Klank frontman Daren Diolosa.
Ten Story has been fortunate enough to share the stage with national bands like; Warrant, Firehouse, The Dreaming” (featuring Christopher Hall of Stabbing Westward), Jim Florentine of “That Metal Show”, Naked Beggars (featuring Cinderella’s Eric Brittingham and Jeff LaBar), Leaving Eden, and Modern Day Zero. Their commitment and drive has taken them to stages in Chicago and St Louis, and has led to new visions for themselves, their crew, and their fans.
To round out August, Ten Story lit up the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds, and Metalholic Radio’s own Dia G. was on hand to torture, er, interview the guys. You can watch the full video below.
