"A Long Way" I've come a long way and I don't need you fucking it up for me I've come a long way I don't need you fucking it up for me There's a light - burning out - in the night - so much darkness consuming you - and i can't be dragged down with you I've come a long way and i don't need you fucking it up for me There's a world - that keeps revolving - out in space it's people come and go - so what you come to know, is there's no time to waste I've come a long way and i don't need you fucking it up for me

about

THE SECOND FULL-LENGTH RELEASE FROM DAN VAPID FORMERLY OF SCREECHING WEASEL, RIVERDALES AND THE METHADONES!

After recording and releasing a self-tilted release in 2012, starting their own label (Torture Chamber Records), touring the East Coast, Midwest and Canada, releasing split 7 inch’s with Masked Intruder and the Jetty Boys, and finding a new bass player (Rick Uncapher - Noise By Numbers/Textbook), Dan Vapid and The Cheats entered Atlas Studio to record their follow-up LP with Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Less Than Jake).

The twelve-song result is a record that could easily stand up to anything in Vapid’s back catalog. From the opening blast of “I’m A Contrarian” to the epic ballad “A Long Way”, the record combines Vapid’s love of classic power-pop and punk in a way that is a lost art in today’s musical landscape. And with the sparkling production of Matt Allison, “Two” is destined to be a fan favorite and a record that you definitely don't want to miss.

Band: Dan Vapid and The Cheats
Album Title: Two
