EP Review: The Wedding 7”

Title:  The Wedding 7” (Solidarity Recordings, BandCamp [Solidarity], Amazon, iTunes, Interpunk)
Artists:  Masked Intruder (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, BandCamp, Last.fm, Fat Wreck Chords); Dan Vapid and The Cheats (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, BandCamp, Last.fm)

What do you get when two of the best pop punk / power pop bands in the world get together and put out a split seven inch EP in honor of a mutual friend’s upcoming wedding?  Absolute brilliance, that’s what.  On this split EP, Masked Intruder and Dan Vapid and The Cheat have each written a song for Solidarity Recordings’ Randy’s July wedding.  Both songs are the typically fantastic mix of pop punk and power pop that you would expect from these two bands.  In fact, this EP is a must for fans of these bands and the pop punk and power pop genres in general.  Yes it is that damn good!
