Dashboard Confessional Say New Music is on the Way
Chris Carrabba says there's definitely a new Dashboard Confessional album coming, even if he hasn't even started writing it yet.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Dashboard frontman said the band's current tour with Third Eye Blind reignited his creative drive. "This tour has led us to say, 'All we want to do is tour.' The next stop comes [new music]," Carrabba told the magazine.
When that record will come -- or even when the band will start working on it -- is still totally up in the air. "I imagine I’ll probably start writing any minute now. For a 12-song record it can be as short as 10 days, or as long as three months, or as long as two years."
Carrabba was even less clear when it came to the direction the band wanted to take with the record. "We will sound like what we sound like," he said. "With every record we like to take a step forward. We just make a step forward. You make a record off what you learn on the last tour."
Earlier this year, Dashboard gave e-mail subscribers access to a previously unreleased demo of a song called “The Burning Fuse" -- the band's first new song in six years. The band's tour with Third Eye Blind wraps up on July 27 in San Francisco. A full list of dates is below.
