On Thursday March 22, 2016 The Two Tens, one of LA’s hottest up and coming bands is heading back to Reno to rock Shea’s Tavern Reno, located at 715 S. Virginia St. The show starts at 9:00 and it’s 21 and up. This is the bands second time playing Shea’s, they did a show there last June and they rocked the house then and surly will do the same this time.
With buzzing guitars, big thumping drums and sheets of skysaw vocals, The Two Tens are inspired by ‘60s garage and ‘70s punk along with all manner of modern buzz ‘n’ fuzz. The duo is ready to bring The Two Tens sound and style to you and your mama.
The band which consist of guitarist/vocalist Adam Bones and drummer extraordinaire Rikki Styxx will be debuting their first full length studio album “Volume” which was released on February 26, 2016. You can now download the new album on iTunes – http://apple.co/1S6x3ii or get a physical CD on Bandcamp – http://bit.ly/1LiGb1K
Shortly after forming, the band quickly wrote 12 songs and recorded them with producer Bruce Duff (Prima Donna, Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs) at Paul Roessler’s (Screamers, 45 Grave) Kitten Robot studio in Los Angeles. Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, Dirtbombs) mixed the recordings in Detroit. The recordings have been released as a series of three-song, download-only EPs. Artwork came from Stephen Blickenstaff, well-known for his iconic cover art for The Cramp’s Bad Music for Bad People.
