“I first heard the demos that would become the American Dreamers EP and was blown away by the range of talent in this band. Within one band, it’s rare to find two exceptional singers as well as a musical and songwriting force that I am personally envious of,”-Ken Lewis-Multi-Grammy Winner

Biography

Thirteen Yards to Victory (13 YTV) is Anthony DiPerri (20, Vocals, Keys), Vinny Prezioso (20, Guitar, Vocals), Thomas Iannello (21, Guitar, Vocals), Ryan Passariello (18, Drums) and Dave Rossi (22, Bass) of Saugus, Mass., and was formed in late 2005. During its brief time on the music scene, the band has performed during the Boston date of the internationally acclaimed Vans Warped Tour in 2007, has covered 29 states via three independent national tours and has recorded under the auspices of acclaimed drummer Kenny Aronoff (Melissa Etheridge, John Fogerty and Smashing Pumpkins).

Most recently, 13 YTV approached music industry powerhouse Ken Lewis (Usher, Kanye West, Fall Out Boy, Mariah Carey, Jay-Z) to produce and mix their latest EP, American Dreamers. Once the major-label, multi-Platinum producer, multiple-Grammy Award winning mix engineer and musician heard the initial tracks and the intent of the EP, he immediately signed on to the project.

“I first heard the demos that would become the American Dreamers EP and was blown away by the range of talent in this band. Within one band, it’s rare to find two exceptional singers as well as a musical and songwriting force that I am personally envious of,” said Lewis. “If I had this much realized talent at 20 years old, I'd be famous right now. Hopefully I can play a role in making Thirteen Yards to Victory a household name as well as an instantly recognizable sound escaping from your radio speakers. They've got all the raw talent and passion for music, and every time I push them in the studio, they rise above the occasion and deliver.”

13 YTV band members Vinny Prezioso and Dave Rossi are currently in pre-production for a new, internet-based, interactive talk show to be aired on the CBS Digital Radio Network, AOL Radio and Yahoo Radio. Their co-host is nationally acclaimed comedian Chuck Mignanelli. FOX national-local television and WTKK 96.9 FM radio personality Joe Ligotti, The Guy from Boston, is a contributor.

Through the massive popularity of its MySpace Music page, 13 YTV has amassed thousands of fans spanning the globe. The phenomenal Internet buzz created has caught the interest of indie and major labels alike.

Lyrics

American Dreamers (Dreamers Mix)

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

If I told you it’s real,

This chance to feel alive,

Would you run? Would you follow me?

Into the night.

I know a place on the edge of town,

We can sit and watch the planes
touch down.

Let’s face it, don’t waste,

Take this chance and make it count
Can you feel it?

And do you feel alive?

I can feel your heart beat with mine.

All these dreams that never left,

Hold on to them and don’t forget,

If you never try then you’ll never know,

Tonight it’s just you and I.

Take a chance,

And breathe it in

Take a chance,

Will you let me in?

Do you trust me?

Don’t you trust me?

Tonight it’s just you and I.

On and on we sing this song,

We’re looking for hope to carry on.

With every breath and step,

The stars in the sky are all that we have left.

Can you feel it?

And do you feel alive?

I can feel your heart beat with mine.

Your Secret’s Safe (With Me)

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

I’ll be patient, yeah I’ll be waiting.

Your heart’s vacant, stop hesitating.

To fulfill your need for guilty things.

With one more night of misleadings.

And I can’t say that its been so easy.

I only hope that you believe me.

I’ll take my chances on honesty.

I’ll be here waiting here, waiting honestly.

I’ve never seen someone let go so easily.

I swear, I swear, your secret’s safe with me.

I won’t let me, let you, let go.

I don’t want to, no I don’t want to.

You’re all I want and you’re all I need.

You’re all I see and you’re all I dream.

And I’ve been hanging on words you’re saying.

Trapped in games that you’ve been playing.

I’ll take my chances on honesty.

I’ll be here waiting here, waiting honestly.

I’ve never seen someone let go so easily.

I swear, I swear, your secret’s safe with me.

Tonight

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

I want to sing for someone,

But someone ain’t coming and no, I’m not running,

Because I never held back and you know,

I never did,

And you want it right now like you know I can’t give.

Tonight, tonight, it’s on tonight.

You know tonight, that you can’t fight.

They’re just songs, don’t flatter yourself.

Just words on paper and nothing else.

Because I never cared much, wasn’t hard to let go.

Just another wall post quoting lines you don’t know.

Don’t you remember how we,

Don’t you remember how we sing,

This song tonight,

You’re coming, you’re coming home.

Remember how we,

Remember how we sing,

This song tonight,

You’re coming, you’re coming home.

I want to sing for someone,

But someone ain’t coming and no I’m not running,

Because I never held back and you know I never did,

And you want it right now like you know I can’t give tonight.

Passing By

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

You’ve got me wide awake.

Thinking of yesterday.

Slow down, Slow down,

I want to dream,

Slow down, Slow down,

Of you and me.

I feel the burning in my lungs,

And the consequence of everything,

I have ever done.

When I say, I miss you more than you,

Could ever miss me,

You know I mean it.

When I say, I need you more than you,

Could ever need me,

You know I mean it.

Because this is my last effort,

Do I get her or forget her all together?

Slow down, Slow down,

I want to dream,

Slow down, Slow down,

Of you and me.

I feel the burning in my lungs,

And the consequence of everything,

I have ever done.

When I say, I miss you more than you,

Could ever miss me,

You know I mean it.

When I say, I need you more than you,

Could ever need me,

You know I mean it.

I miss you, I need you, more than you, could ever,

I miss you, I need you, I mean it, I mean it

Moving On

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

A girl, a dream, a nightmare.

I hope I don’t forget you.

A day, a week, a month, a year.

Another night to get through.

I’m selling you short,

Has it been this long?

This is passing by, This is moving on.

You’ve got me hooked, I’m one year strong.

This is passing by, This is moving on.

Let me in, let me know,

I can’t do this on my own.

Let it out, Let it show,

I need you here, I need you here.

Let me in, let me know,

By your side, You’re not alone.

Let it out, Let it show,

I need you here, I need you here.

I wonder when we’ll be under,

The same sky again to feel the thunder.

3,000 miles doesn’t seem so far,

I’m sure I can see it.

I’m selling you short,

Has it been this long?

This is passing by, This is moving on.

You’ve got me hooked, I’m one year strong.

This is passing by, This is moving on.

Crash…and Burn

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

Sit and watch as we pass you by.

We’re crushing your dreams, crushing your scene.

And you don’t need to try.

Because the look in your eyes, it says it all.

Jealousy won’t get you far.

It’s the drive you lack, that held you back.

So tell them how we can cut it no,

We can’t cut, we can’t cut it.

Oh, we’ve got nothing, nothing left to prove.

We’ve got nothing to lose.

It’s all been said before.

Keep repeating, keep repeating.

It’s time you crash and burn.

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

It’s all been said before.

I can’t take it, I can’t take it.

It’s time you crash and burn.

You’re so tough behind your screen.

And you’re talking, talking like we don’t see.

Yeah what’s up we’re the latest trend.

And we’ll keep singing until the end.

Just don’t forget your six words.

“We do it for the money.”

So tell them all how we can cut it no,

We can’t cut, we can’t cut it.

We’ve got nothing, nothing left to prove.

We’ve got nothing to lose.

Its all been said before.

Keep repeating, keep repeating.

Its time you crash and burn.

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

Its all been said before.

I can’t take it, I can’t take it.

Its time you crash and burn.

We’ll keep on shining until the end.

Weeks Away

Written By: Thirteen Yards To Victory

This distance I’m creating,

Could destroy us in the end.

Over countless miles,

I can’t get you out of my head.

Weeks away from home are nothing,

Compared to a day,

Without you.

Too many nights I’m thinking,

Of what I’ve left behind.

They say distance will make you stronger,

But I feel weaker with every, every.

Weeks away from home are nothing,

Compared to a day,

Without you.

I left my heart,

On the side of the road.

Distance will be,

My struggle with hope

Why is this all on me?

I know where my heart is.

Where’s yours?
