Dashboard Confessional with Beach Slang, Kississippi
Propelled by Chris Carrabba’s intimate and emotionally raw lyrics, sweeping acoustics, and his charismatic presence, Dashboard Confessional stands as one of the biggest alternative bands of the 2000s. Critically acclaimed and embraced by a legion of fans, Dashboard’s brand of alternative rock swept through a generation who embraced their albums and sold out arenas (their last full band tour culminated in selling out NYC’s Madison Square Garden!). “One is reminded of Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks, only stripped down to the bare essentials,” praised PopMatters about their debut The Swiss Army Romance, setting the tone for the band’s massive impact on both their fans and the media alike, including SPIN, Alternative Press, MTV, among many others.
Their breakthrough second album 2002’s The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most included the trademark single “Screaming Infidelities”, yielding their first gold certified album and peaking at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200. Later that same year, the single won the MTV2 Award at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. Their third album A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar gave them their first Top Ten Modern Rock single “Hands Down” and reached #2 on the Top 200. To date, Dashboard Confessional has a platinum album with their live release MTV Unplugged, 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).
