10 Years and Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group have announced the release of “Deconstructed” on March 4. The album will present 19 alternate takes of the band’s most popular songs from their 20-year career.
The complete track listing of “Deconstructed” features “Halos,” “Lucky You,” “Say Goodbye,” “The Unknown,” “I Wish,” “Waking Up,” “Patiently,” “Seasons To Cycles,” “Survivors,” “Running In Place,” “Knives,” “Soma,” “Fix Me,” “Fault Line,” “11AM (Daydreamer),” “Planets I,” “Dying Youth,” “One More Day,” and “Wasteland.”
Guitarist Brian Vodinh shares, ‘The idea for “Deconstructed” started out as just an acoustic performance. Myself and Matt with acoustic guitars, and nothing beyond that in terms of instrumentation. Then, as I was working on adapting some of the songs to an acoustic environment, I started getting these thoughts, like, ‘What if this was played on a piano instead?!’ Then once we opened the door to further instrumentation things spiralled out of control quickly, and it became one of the most challenging, yet most gratifying projects we have taken on. “Deconstructed” allows the listener to discover this list of songs all over again, in a new way.’ Singer Jesse Hasek adds, ‘The “Deconstructed” versions of these songs really hit me in an emotional way. It felt different to sing over the orchestrations that Brian and Matt had created for these. It felt really intimate, and like they had really carved a path for where my voice was to sit on those arrangements. I hope people can listen to these versions and find the spirit in them that we were trying to convey.’
