In a recent interview, Dan Vapid and the Cheats frontman Dan Vapid announced the band’s next album “Two” is set to be released on July 30th via his own label Torture Chamber Records. Here’s what he said when asked about the record:
“It’s a follow-up record on our own label called Torture Chamber Records, so we put out our own stuff now. The record will be called Two, and it will have 14 songs on it. Some of them are reminiscent of the first album and some of them aren’t, they’re kind of their own thing. It’s kind of a mix of bands that I have been in in the past, but there’s also some other elements as well. The release date will be July 30, and you should be able to find it on Interpunk and we’ll have a Bandcamp site. It will be available digitally and all that.”
And when asked about The Mopes (which also features pop-punk heavyweights B-Face, John Jughead, and Dan Lumley) reuniting to play this year’s Insubordination Fest, he replied:
“I was on Facebook and there was a little thread about how many times you’d been to Insubordination Fest and I said I’d been to all of them. I believe it was the same thread – it turned into would the Mopes ever consider playing Insubordination Fest again? I said I’d be down if those guys were. I recently was in contact with John Jughead and B-Face just within the last six months. Chris from Insubordination Fest sent me a message asking if I thought this was doable. I said yeah, I think this is doable as long as we could make all the logistics work, I don’t see why not. So I reached out to those guys and they were really into it. That was that. It was pretty straightforward. It’s me, John and B-Face and not the drummer Dan Lumley; he kind of wants to just play metal now, so I got the drummer in my band, Mike Soucy, to play drums. We’re excited to be doing that, it’s going to be a good time.”
We’ll keep you posted as more details on Dan Vapid and the Cheats’ upcoming album surface. The band last released a split 7-inch with Masked Intruder in April through Solidarity Recordings. Prior to that, they released their self-titled debut album in 2012 via Torture Chamber.
