10 Years was initially formed in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1999 with singer Mike Underdown, Drummer Brian Vodinh, Bassist Lewis Cosby, and Guitarists Ryan "Tater" Johnson and Matt Wantland. In 2001 Cosby left the band who soon recruited Andy Parks on bass and independently went into recording Into the Half Moon in the same year, before long recruited current vocalist Jesse Hasek from another local band. In 2002, Parks Decided to leave the band, then former bassist Lewis Cosby returned, to complete the line up that exists today. The band then released their independent album Killing All That Holds You in 2004. 10 Years were then signed to Republic/Universal in 2005 and released their major label debut, The Autumn Effect on August 16, 2005 with the songs "Wasteland" and "Through The Iris" picking up regional radio play. That same summer the band toured with Disturbed and Ill Niño. In the fall of 2005, they toured with Breaking Benjamin and Smile Empty Soul, then followed up with the Masters of Horror tour with Mudvayne and Sevendust. They also opened for Korn and Mudvayne on Korn's See You On The Other Side tour. They recently finished touring with Korn and Deftones on the Family Values Tour, which started in late July 2006.

Mid-2006, the band toured Australia in a lineup which included Hatebreed, Disturbed and Korn

Their first single, "Wasteland" spent over 12 months on the Rock charts, finally reaching #1 at Active Rock in December 2005. In mid February 2006, "Wasteland" reached #1 on both Alternative and Billboard Modern Rock charts. Their first two singles, Through the Iris and Wasteland, have been certified Gold by the RIAA.

Their first music video, "Wasteland", addresses the social problem of human rights as well as addiction around the world. The video received a nomination for Best Direction and Best Art Direction at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards, but failed to win either award.

On March 27, an EP was released on iTunes containing acoustic versions of "Wasteland" and other tracks from their debut album The Autumn Effect.
