Reveals Surprise EP
Covered + Taped via Spotify

Feat.  Songs by Justin Bieber, The 1975, Julien Baker, Sorority Noise

As a thank you to their fans for one of their fastest selling tours, DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL’s Chris Carrabba covered some of his favorite songs for a surprise EP appropriately titled Covered + Taped. The EP includes songs by The 1975 (“Sex”), Julien Baker (“Sprained Ankle”), Justin Bieber (“Love Yourself”), and Sorority Noise (“Using”). “I love covering great songs by great artists,” Carrabba explains. “These are some songs I feel very connected to right now. Enough so that I felt I had a way of making them my own in some small way.” The EP is available now for streaming on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/7f4MwHTkFBfEzefEtSNsPR

The group has added three shows in Nashville, a show in Santa Ana, along with an additional show in Chicago. Shows have been selling out as soon as they go on sale and tickets are becoming more scarce by the day. Surprise shows will be announced spontaneously throughout the tour for those who may not have been able to attend or for those who wish to go twice. Every song in the catalog has a chance to be played along with the possibility of new unreleased tracks such a “Heart.Beat.Here,” which contains the group’s classic sound that fans from around the world have grown to love since the band’s birth.

After the release of his debut album 2000’s Swiss Army Romance, Dashboard Confessional, the solo moniker for Chris Carrabba gained the loyalty of fans through his honest heartfelt lyrics. The following year, Carrabba entered the studio to record The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut. As a result of the sudden success of his second solo effort, Dashboard Confessional exploded and was everywhere from MTV to VH1 to MTV2 to magazine covers (SPIN, Alternative Press, Guitar World Acoustic). Fans even copied Carrabba’s style down to his haircut.

By 2002 three other musicians had joined the band and Carrabba was asked to perform on MTV Unplugged and the subsequent live release marked the first time that many of the songs were recorded with a full band. Later that year, the band’s first breakout single “Screaming Infidelities” off of The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most won the MTV2 Award at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. Their third studio album A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart and was certified gold by RIAA. The band went on to release three more albums (Dusk and Summer, The Shade of Poison Trees, Alter the Ending) over the next six years. To date, Dashboard Confessional has three RIAA certified gold-selling albums (Swiss Army Romance, The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most, A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar) and has had numerous songs featured on TV (Cougar Town, One Tree Hill, Scrubs, All My Children, Laguna Beach, NCIS, Cold Case, Clone High) and in movies (Shrek 2, Spider-Man 2, Made of Honor, Sydney White).

Dashboard Confessional is Chris Carrabba (vocals, guitar), Scott Schoenbeck (bass), Armon Jay (guitar, keys), Ben Homola (drums).
