Feeding the Wolves is the fifth studio album by the American alternative metal band 10 Years, and their third major label release. The album debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 chart, with 19,000 units sold.

Background[edit]

The album was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge. The band has mentioned this will be their heaviest material to date and "very similar to some of their early songs." The 10-track album was the Tennessee band's first since founding guitarist Matt Wantland left the group in 2009.

Throughout the first half of 2010, the band went back and forth between putting on live shows and working on the album in the studio. During this time, they debuted a few new songs live, including "Dead in the Water", "Now is the Time", and the new album's first single ""Shoot It Out" ".

On June 12, 2010, ""Shoot It Out" " was played on Sirius/XM Radio. The track was released to radio in late June, and was made available to download on iTunes July 6. The band later announced that Feeding The Wolves would be released on August 31, 2010.

The bonus track "Silhouette of a Life" was also included on their 2004 album Killing All That Holds You.

There is a video for the single ""Shoot It Out" " that can be viewed on YouTube.

In June 2011 a video was shot for their single Fix Me and was released in later 2011.
