Dashboard Confessional’s anthemic singalongs have tugged and mended many a teenage heart following their 2000 debut “The Swiss Army Romance” and 2003’s “A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar.”
Now 41, Chris Carrabba is staging a casual Dashboard revival of sorts, following the band's brief hiatus and a successful run in the folk category with Twin Forks. Over the summer, Dashboard will join the Taste of Chaos tour with fellow emo era headliners, Taking Back Sunday. Meanwhile Carrabba is making his way through a new Dashboard album, the first since 2009’s “Alter the Ending.”
He calls from Nashville, his new home base, to discuss the band’s future, their upcoming tour and his unyielding and restorative dedication to fitness.
