In February of 2002, a group of guys from Richmond, Virginia had an idea to start a project encompassing various sounds, working from diverse influences. Originally called WHENEVER YOU’RE READY and then THE EMERGENCY, this five-piece band worked to blend the likeable aspects of youth crew hardcore, emotional rock n’ roll, and metal, all the while annexing a distinctive melodic twist to the mix. After realizing they needed to change their name one final time, the band took on the police code for “emergency” and became TEN 33. As a band, TEN 33 hold dear the notion that their collective thoughts and ideas are essential to producing relevant, heartfelt, and meaningful music and lyrics, with each member contributing to the process of writing. Since their first show in early August of 2002 this group ethic has helped excel the band along their path. The band entered the studio soon after making their public debut, recording their five song demo, Panic In The Streets. Since then, TEN 33 has played shows regularly, toured the East Coast several times, recorded yet another demo, Walk The Plank, and constantly built a devoted fanbase throughout the U.S. In March of 2004, TEN 33 entered local studio Full Lumbar Support to record their debut full length, Emergency! Emergency! With Ian Whalen (LAMB OF GOD, BATS & MICE) at the helm, the band’s Blood & Ink Records debut definitely upped the band’s already incredible sound.

On the heels of both fan and critical acclaim for Emergency! Emergency!, TEN 33 again began working on a full length, entering the studio in April 2005 to begin work on the release. This time recording at Planet Red Studios (WINTER SOLSTICE, DOWN TO NOTHING, SCARLET, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) in Richmond, VA, TEN 33‘s sophomore effort, entitled Nightmare On Grace Street, marks a new level for the band. All those lucky enough to have heard the album already have had nothing but glowing comments and, by all accounts, this is TEN 33‘s best material to date. With a heavy Summer 2005 tour schedule planned, as well as making an appearance at Cornerstone 2005 in Illinois, TEN 33 are armed with an incredible album and ready to show both new and old fans alike that this band can’t be ignored.
