Ten Second Epic is a five-piece rock band from Edmonton, Alberta. The band formed in 2002 and still consists of original line-up Andrew Usenik (vocals), Daniel Carriere (guitar), Craig Spelliscy (guitar), Sandy MacKinnon (bass guitar) and Patrick Birtles (drums). The band has released two full-length albums, Count Yourself In and Hometown. The band released their 3rd full-length record, Better Off, on September 20th, 2011.

Early years: ''2002-2006''

The band started in 2002 as a casual project for 5 high school friends, practicing in basement of drummer Patrick Birtles parents' house. After playing a handful of local shows in Edmonton at various all-ages venues, the band recorded the 'Your Famous Last Words' EP with friend and current Shout Out Out Out Out member Nik Kozub. The EP was a 5 song disc pressed by the band members and sold at shows. The band began playing shows across Western Canada and eventually committed their next release to local Edmonton independent record label 'Farway Records'.

The band soon after returned to the studio to record the One More for the Road EP with friend Real Cardinal. For the release of the EP in 2004, the band played a free show at the Edmonton Events Center which ended up filling the venue to capacity at 1600 people, leaving hundreds more outside. The show caught the eye of the Edmonton media and sparked several featured on the band including being voted the "Best Band in Edmonton" by SEE Magazine. Soon after the release, Farway Records closed their doors and the band re-released the EP independently.
