[Artist Spotlight] - Dashboard Confessional
2019.08.05 16:48 Im-a-molecule [Artist Spotlight] - Dashboard Confessional
emo indie Similar Artists Singesongwriter Christopher Carrabba became the poster boy for a generation of emo fans in the early 2000s, having left behind his former band (the post-hardcore Christian outfit Further Seems Forever) to concentrate on vulnerable, introspective solo musings. Armed with an acoustic guitar and soul-baring song lyrics, he christened his new project Dashboard Confessional -- named after a lyric in "The Sharp Hint of New Tears" -- and began releasing material in 2000. By 2001's The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most, Dashboard Confessional had evolved into a full-fledged band, but Carrabba nevertheless remained the focal point of both the group and the rejuvenated emo genre.
Dashboard Confessional took root in Boca Raton, Florida, Carrabba's home since the age of 16. The singer had previously fronted the Vacant Andys and the Agency before joining the ranks of Further Seems Forever, but the desire to pursue something simpler led him to create Dashboard Confessional as a side project. Carrabba molded simple acoustics with passionate, personal wordplay on his 2000 debut, Swiss Army Romance, and a devout audience began to gather around the naked honesty of his lyrics. Further Seems Forever entered the studio that September to record their inaugural full-length, but Carrabba's plans to mount a solo career had already taken precedence over his current band. Nevertheless, he and his bandmates finished the album before amicably parting ways, with Further Seems Forever later recruiting former Affinity frontman Jason Gleason to replace their departed vocalist.
By late 2000, Carrabba was free to devote his undivided time to Dashboard Confessional. The Drowning EP was released in early 2001, with the full-length album The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most following soon after. The latter release featured a full band on several tracks -- a vast departure from Carrabba's previously unaccompanied material -- and the heart-rending single "Screaming Infidelities" found an immediate home on modern rock radio. Dashboard Confessional toured for several months, and Carrabba rounded out the year by collaborating with former Sunny Day Real Estate guitarist Dan Hoerner on the So Impossible EP, which was released in mid-December.
Dashboard Confessional issued Summers Kiss, a companion piece to the So Impossible EP, in April 2002. Later that year, Carrabba recorded an installment for the MTV Unplugged series, accompanied by a devoted studio audience that sang along to every word. The show was released as MTV Unplugged 2.0 and served as his breakthrough performance, eventually going platinum. Now a staple on both radio and MTV, Carrabba returned in 2003 with a permanent lineup -- including bassist Scott Schoenbeck, guitarist/pianist Johnny Lefler, and drummer Mike Marsh -- and a new album, A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar. The record topped the Billboard charts and spawned another hit single, "Hands Down," which peaked at number eight. However, it was the band's contribution of the song "Vindicated" to 2004's Spider-Man 2 soundtrack that truly resonated with a wide audience, with the song rising to number two.
Carrabba collaborated with producers Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel) and Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Pearl Jam) on the band's intimate 2006 release Dusk and Summer. Released in June, the album entered the Billboard charts at number two and was supported by nationwide tour dates alongside Ben Lee, Say Anything, and Brand New. Dashboard Confessional then returned to the studio with Gilmore, recording the band's fifth album, The Shade of Poison Trees, in March 2007. The album was released the following October, with its acoustic-heavy sound marking a return to the band's introspective roots. Chris Carrabba explored both sides of his personality -- the acoustic, campfire-worthy songwriter and the full-band frontman -- with 2009's Alter the Ending, which featured songs from both camps and even included a second disc comprised of stripped-down performances of the track list. After touring in support of the effort, Carrabba released a remastered version of the band's debut, The Swiss Army Romance, embarking on a solo tour to celebrate the album's tenth anniversary.
After an extended hiatus, Carrabba resurrected Dashboard Confessional for 2017's Covered and Taped EP, which featured covers of songs by the 1975, Justin Bieber, and others. Early in 2018, Carrabba returned with Crooked Shadows, his first collection of original material in eight years.
Performing, The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most
The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most was released on March 20, 2001. Following this, the band went on tour until late May. For the last half of May, they toured with The Weakerthans. Another tour in June and early July followed, before joining the Vagrant America Tour, which continued into September. The group added Sunny Day Real Estate guitarist Dan Hoerner to their line-up, and closed the year with a six-week long headlining tour from late October to early December. A music video was filmed for "Screaming Infidelities" in early January 2002 with directors Maureen Egan and Matthew Barry. The track was remixed by Andy Wallace and released as a single on January 15. The song's music video debuted later in the month and was in heavy rotation at MTV and MTV2. Following this, the album was given retail exposure with listening booths at various big chain stores.
In addition, the release received heavy airplay support from 89X, KFSD and WVEP. In March and April, they went a tour of the US with support from The Anniversary, Ben Kweller and Seafood. By June, John Lefler joined the band as an additional guitarist. In July and August, the group supported Weezer on their headlining US arena tour. Following this, the band went on the Vagrant America arena tour, alongside other Vagrant Records bands. A music video for "Saints and Sailors" premiered on MTV2 on August 22. The clip was one shot at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, California. At the end of the month, the group appeared at the Reading and Leeds Festivals. In October and November, the group went on a headlining US tour with support from Piebald and Rhett Miller.
The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most sold 2,500 copies in its first week, over 40,000 copies by August, and 65,000 by the end of the year. By mid-2002, it surpassed the 200,000 mark, and was close to the 400,000 mark by early 2003. As of August 2003, sales stood at 426,000 copies. The album has been certified Gold by the RIAA, meaning it sold over 500,000 copies in the United States.
The album, according to Rock Sound, gave Dashboard Confessional "a ton of worldwide exposure." This resulted in Carrabba becoming "the poster boy for the emo resurgence of the early 2000s" and the album "defin[ing] an entire movement."

GOODNIGHT That's all for tonight, we will be back in the morning with more transfer talk.
CELTIC GO AGAIN FOR MCGINN Sky sources understand Celtic have made a third bid for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn believed to be in the region of £2million.
Celtic failed with bids of £1.5 million and £1.75 million in the past two weeks for the Scotland international.
McGinn, who has just one year left on his deal at Easter Road, is also attracting attention from clubs in England.
CITY DENY PJANIC LINKS Manchester City have denied that they are in for Juventus playmaker Miralem Pjanic.
It has been reported that City were preparing an £89m bid for the 28-year-old.
CLARKE 'WORKING HARD' Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke says he is finding the transfer market frustrating.
Clarke has only managed to bring in one player so far - Bournemouth forward Mikael Ndjoli on a six-month loan deal.
He said: "We're speaking all the time to agents, trying to gauge the market, find out who is available on loan and who is available for nothing, as that is the market we're working in.
"We're working the market hard, although nothing is really falling for us at the moment - but we'll keep looking."
MARTIAL STARTS FOR UTD Liverpool and Manchester United are both in pre-season action tonight.
Liverpool are playing Borussia Dortmund, with summer signings Fabinho and Naby Keita involved in the squad.
And Manchester United are facing San Jose, with Anthony Martial starting.
BREAKING NEWS Sky sources understand Huddersfield forward Tom Ince has had a medical at Stoke after the clubs agreed a £10m fee.
It’s hoped the move will be finalised in the next 24-48 hours.
GAYLE BID REJECTED Newcastle have turned down a loan offer from West Brom for Dwight Gayle, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.
Apparently the bid was "swiftly snubbed" by Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez, who is said to be keen to keep hold of the striker.
WATCH: TRANSFER CENTRE With plenty of transfer stories developing at the moment, here's a wrap of where we stand from the Transfer Centre on Sky Sports News...
WHARTON REJOINS LINCOLN Defender Scott Wharton has re-signed for Lincoln on a season-long loan from Blackburn Rovers.
The 20-year-old, who signed a new three-year contract with Blackburn on Wednesday, spent the second half of 2017/18 with the Imps.
KANE NOT CONCERNED Tottenham might be the only Premier League top-six side yet to sign anyone in the summer window, but striker Harry Kane does not seem too concerned.
When asked about Spurs' activity in the transfer window, Kane told Sky Sports: "That's up to the gaffer and the chairman, and I am sure they will get who they want and get rid of who they want.
"From our point of view we've just got to focus - we've got a great squad, we're growing and getting better each year, and it's important for us going into the new stadium just to keep progressing."
NAPOLI KEEN ON DARMIAN Napoli's president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed Manchester United's Matteo Darmian is one of a number of full-back options they are considering moving for...
ALISSON TO DEBUT IN DUBLIN Jurgen Klopp expects Alisson to make his Liverpool debut against Napoli in Dublin on August 4.
Alisson joined Liverpool from Roma in a £67m deal last week but has been given extended leave after the World Cup.
"He is desperate to play. He could have joined us here in America but it made absolutely no sense," Reds boss Klopp is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph.
"He had a long year and, as Brazil’s No 1, it was quite an intense year, so I sent him on holiday again. There will still be two games to play and West Ham is only the first game of the season, not the last one.
"I would say he plays in Dublin [against Napoli]."
NORWICH ON THE LOOKOUT Norwich manager Daniel Farke has suggested the club might sign a new goalkeeper this summer.
Manchester City loanee Angus Gunn was Norwich's first choice last season, but Remi Matthews and Michael McGovern are currently competing for the No 1 spot.
"It is quite obvious we don’t fall asleep in the market because we have lost a goalkeeper, but it is also a situation that doesn’t concern me," Farke told the Eastern Daily Press.
"There have been some good games but also some mistakes. I am pleased with their attitude, they are both working hard. I trust them both and I would have no problem if one of them would be between the posts when the real stuff starts.
"I trust my keepers but without any pressure we can watch the market. Let’s see how it develops."
MCCLEAN HAS 'REAL QUALITY' Stoke boss Gary Rowett has been talking to the club website about the addition of James McClean...
"James is a player I've admired for a long time. He has real quality with his left foot and he's an old fashioned winger in so much that he retains width and gives teams balance.
"I've spoken to lads who have played with him before, the likes of Darren Fletcher, and they have all said that he's a great guy to have around the dressing room and he's really, really popular with his team-mates."
STOKE SIGN MCCLEAN Stoke City have completed the signing of James McClean on a four-year deal from West Brom.
The Potters have paid an initial £5million for the 29-year-old, although the fee could rise to £6million with add-ons.
REINA JOINS AC MILAN AC Milan have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who was a free agent after leaving Napoli.
JIMENEZ, PATRICIO DEBUTS Summer signings Raul Jimenez and Rui Patricio both made their debuts for Wolves today in a pre-season friendly against Bochum.

It is reported that Iwobi has agreed terms on an improved contract until 2022.
BREAKING NEWS Watford's Richarlison is set to have a medical with Everton in the next 24 hours.
Richarlison returned home early from Watford’s pre-season training camp in Austria and we are told the clubs are finalising a deal and the structure of payments.
The deal could be worth in the region of £50m, which would mean a huge profit for Watford as they signed him for £13m last summer when Marco Silva was manager.
FARROW JOINS READING Women's Super League side Reading have signed Millie Farrow from Bristol City.
The 22-year-old started her career at Chelsea and has represented England at both Under-19 and Under-23 level.
BREAKING NEWS We understand Chelsea are one of three clubs interested in signing Anthony Martial from Manchester United this summer.
It is understood Chelsea have yet to make a formal offer but are keen on signing Martial, along with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
Martial, currently with the Manchester United squad in Los Angeles, has a year remaining on his current contract and we understand he has told Jose Mourinho he wants to leave.
However, sources have told us that United are not interested in selling Martial and Mourinho has suggested he will be part of the squad for their opening game of the season against Leicester.
JACK HAMMER Jack Wilshere pulled on a West Ham shirt for the first time yesterday after joining from Arsenal...
BARCA EYE SENEGAL DEFENDER Barcelona want to sign Senegal defender Moussa Wague, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Wague’s impressive displays at the World Cup caught the eye of Barca, who are working to bring him to the Camp Nou from Belgian outfit KAS Eupen.
The 19-year-old would link up with the LaLiga champions’ reserve side Barca B if he completes a move to the club this summer.
MCCORMACK TO SUNDERLAND? Sunderland want Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack on loan, reports the Mail On Sunday.
The report also suggests the League One side are also interested in Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones.
ROONEY: MLS START WAS TOUGH Wayne Rooney has described his first start for MLS side DC United as a "tough" and "difficult" game.
Rooney's new side, who are bottom of the Eastern Conference, lost 3-1 to Atlanta United on Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
It was a frustrating afternoon for the former Manchester United and Everton striker. His misplaced pass led to Atlanta's opening goal and he later picked up a yellow card for a clash with Chris McCann before being substituted after 66 minutes.
"Today was a difficult game. Atlanta are top of the league and they're a good team," Rooney told the club's website. "We knew it was going to be a difficult game. We knew it was going to be tough.
"We had to hang in there at times and unfortunately we didn't quite do that well enough today. But there are still a few positives and I'm happy about more minutes on the pitch today which will help me. Overall, I'm disappointed with the result on a personal level."
DONE DEAL Striker Korrey Henry has joined Yeovil Town, signing a one-year deal at Huish Park with a club option of extending for a further year.
JUVE CHASE MILINKOVIC-SAVIC Juventus will pick up their pursuit of Sergey Milinkovic-Savic again after being frustrated in their efforts to sign Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot, according to Tuttosport.
The report suggests Manchester United transfer target could leave Lazio for around €100m.
HERRERA BACKS MARTIAL TO RULE THE WORLD Anthony Martial can be "one of the best players in the world", according to Manchester United team-mate Ander Herrera.
Martial had a frustrating second season under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford - scoring nine goals in 18 starts - leading to him being left out of France's World Cup-winning squad and linked with a move away.
Sky Sports News understands Martial is part of United's plans for the forthcoming season, despite his agent telling French media in July that he wants to leave.
Herrera has been impressed by Martial's start to pre-season and has backed him to rediscover his form this term.
"He's very talented," the Spanish midfielder said. "He can be one of the best players in the world and I think he is very focused this season to smash it. When you have players like Anthony, like Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, those kind of players that can change the game."
TOWNSEND INTERESTING WEST BROM West Brom are interested in highly-rated Scunthorpe left-back Conor Townsend, who could also attract an offer from his former club Hull City, according to the Mail On Sunday.
KENT REACTION https://twitter.com/RangersFC/status/1021008305295118336
WITSEL TO BVB? Axel Witsel is interesting Borussia Dortmund, according to Funke Sport.
The Bundesliga club would have to pay €40m to sign the Belgian international from Tianjin Quanjian in China, but the Belgium midfielder would likely have to take a pay cut to make the move.
BREAKING NEWS Rangers have announced the signing of Ryan Kent on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
KLOPP: I LIKE PULISIC Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he is a fan of Christian Pulisic, but concedes a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger is unlikely in this window.
Dortmund, according to reports, rejected a bid from the Merseyside club for Pulisic in 2016, but his father has since branded links with Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham as "hogwash".
Klopp, who is familiar with Pulisic having previously worked with the 19-year-old while at Dortmund, believes he is at the right club to further his career, but refused to rule out linking up with him in the future. When asked about the chances of Liverpool making an approach, Klopp said: "He has a contract at Dortmund, no? That's the first problem. I like Christian, I've known him since he was a kid. He's still not really old, he's a fantastic player, and it's deserved people think highly of him in America.
"In Germany, it's the same. If he wants to play in England or whatever one day then for sure he has the chance to do so but he's at a really good club for his development at this moment. It's really good to be at a club where they know him already. He had not his best season last year but he was still a decisive player but it's important in that age group that there's no rush. He still has 14 or 15 years to play in his career and that's good and he wants to be the best Pulisic he can be. For this, there is still space for development.
"If - at one point - he will join us, I don't know. I like him, it's not that that could be the problem, but we respect contracts still and there's no market I know about at the moment. We did our business and Dortmund are doing theirs. All good."
WOLVES EYE TRAORE Wolves are considering triggering Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore's £18m release clause in order to beat Huddersfield to his signing, according to The Independent on Sunday.
BAYERN CLOSE TO DAVIES DEAL Bayern Munich are closing in on the signing of Canada international Alphonso Davies, reports The Athletic.
Davies, who is on the books at Vancouver Whitecaps, has previously been linked with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Liverpool
However, it appears as though Bayern have won the race to sign the 17-year-old winger, who is set to join the German giants in a $12m deal.
WATCH: KLOPP DEFENDS SPENDING Jurgen Klopp hits back at critics after Liverpool sign goalkeeper Alisson for a world-record £67m.
BOLASIE TO LEICESTER? Leicester City have enquired about Everton winger Yannick Bolasie, reports the Sunday Express.

FOOTBALL WHISPERS Here are the latest transfer rumours from our friends at Football Whispers...
ROSS RULES OUT DOCHERTY BID Sunderland manager Jack Ross has ruled out a move for Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty, writes the Daily Record.
WATCH: ‘ZAHA IS IRREPLACEABLE FOR PALACE’ Jeffrey Schlupp and Joel Ward hope “irreplaceable” team-mate Wilfried Zaha stays at Crystal Palace this summer.
‘GREALISH WON’T GO ON THE CHEAP’ Steve Bruce says Aston Villa should now be able to "name their price" on midfielder Jack Grealish after investment into the club was revealed.
Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris and American businessman Wes Edens are set to take charge at Villa Park after making what is reported to be a "significant investment" in the Sky Bet Championship club. That deal could have a significant effect on Bruce's own future, as well as that of a number of high-profile players including Grealish.
Sky Sports News understands Villa and Tottenham have held talks over a deal for the 22-year-old, whose position as one of Villa's highest earners had made him most vulnerable in a potential cost-cutting position.
Bruce said: "I know for a fact from the owners - new investors - anybody wanting to buy Jack Grealish will not buy him on the cheap. It's only what somebody else is prepared to pay - what he's worth. Until I have the conversation I can't really answer the question. What is he worth? Who knows? [But] If we have to sell them then at least we get the right price for them and can move forward.
"When you're up against it and hanging your dirty washing out in public then the vultures are circling and ready to nick your assets. At least that's not going to be the case - well I know that's not going to be the case - because I've had that conversation already. So if anybody is going to buy one of our players now they are going to have to pay a premium."
MINA MAY HAVE TO LEAVE BARCA Everton target Yerry Mina admits he may have to leave Barcelona this summer.
The Colombia international joined Barca from Palmeiras in January but has been tipped to leave the club less than seven months after arriving at the Camp Nou.
Everton have reportedly contacted the centre-back’s agent and the player has handed the Toffees hope by admitting he will be forced to leave Barca if the LaLiga champions do not want to keep him.
Speaking to Marca Claro Colombia, he said: “I have a contract with Barca and I want to succeed there. For now, proposals for me have come, but at the moment I want to rush through my holiday and then we’ll see. If they don’t want me, I will have to find the best way out, but I remember that my intention is to succeed at Barca because it’s the best team in the world.”
EURO PAPER TALK Get a full round-up of the back pages of this morning’s European newspapers HERE!

KOVACIC WANTS REAL EXIT Mateo Kovacic remains firm in his desire to leave Real Madrid, reports Marca.
Kovacic last month revealed his desire to change clubs this summer, citing a need for regular first-team football. The Croatia midfielder met new Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui on Friday and asked him to let him leave. Lopetegui tried to persuade him to stay but Kovacic remains convinced that the best thing is for him to leave the Bernabeu this summer.
Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United and Liverpool are among the interested clubs who have contacted him and offered him the possibility of greater first-team action.
The 24-year-old wants to begin pre-season at a new club after his summer holiday. Madrid are starting to feel that they will have to facilitate the Croatian’s departure and would seek a fee of at least €50m.
PICKFORD ON CHELSEA RADAR Everton and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will be on Chelsea's radar if they decide to cash in on Thibaut Courtois this summer, writes The Sun On Sunday.
KLOPP DEFENDS LIVERPOOL SPENDING Jurgen Klopp has defended Liverpool's transfer spending after signing goalkeeper Alisson for a world-record £67m.
Two years ago, when Manchester United paid around £90m for Paul Pogba, the Liverpool manager insisted he would quit football if huge transfer fees became the norm.
Speaking before Liverpool's opening International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund in North Carolina on Sunday, Klopp said spending at the top end of the transfer market had moved on.
"I'll do whatever it takes to make Liverpool successful," he said. "I couldn't have imagined since then that the world would change like it has. Two years ago £100m was a crazy number. Since then the world has changed completely.
"First and foremost my responsibility is to make this club as successful as possible. It's not about pushing through my thoughts or saying 'No, I don't want to buy players, I don't want to pay big money' and then in the end Liverpool FC is not successful. We have a really good team, a really good squad and to improve it is expensive. To find better players than we already have, they aren't waiting around the corner."

The La Liga minnows want to sign the 18-year-old playmaker on loan.
HART KEEN FOR PERMANENT MOVE Joe Hart is keen to secure a permanent move away from Manchester City this summer and avoid going on loan for a third consecutive season.
Hart is back at City after loan spells at Torino and West Ham and finds himself third choice behind Ederson and Claudio Bravo. City boss Pep Guardiola has said he wants to "find a solution" for Hart and the 31-year-old goalkeeper is keen to begin a new chapter in his career.
"I need to go somewhere permanent, I think that's obvious," said Hart, who missed out on selection for England's World Cup squad. "I did what I did in the previous two seasons because I needed to play to be involved in the World Cup - and look where that got me.
"I'm experienced, I've played at the highest level for a long time and done a lot of things in the game. I need to be an important player at that club and I think that can only happen with a permanent move.
“Of course, if I don't find a solution which suits both parties, I'm contracted to Manchester City. I need to do what's right for me and my family and that's the decision I'll be making. It's a tough one, but it's a situation which will be resolved."

PUEL: NO OFFERS FOR SCHMEICHEL Claude Puel insists Leicester have not received any offers for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Sky Sports News understands Chelsea are considering a move for the Denmark international, who helped the Foxes to a ninth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
Puel is determined to hold on to the 31-year-old as he plans for his second season in charge at the King Power Stadium.
"I am not troubled about this," said Puel, speaking after his side's 4-1 win over Notts County in pre-season. "Of course Kasper is a very important player for us. He had a very strong World Cup. We need Kasper, with his character, his performance and his consistency."
When asked if Leicester had received any offers for Schmeichel, Puel said: "No. There is no problem with this. There is a lot of speculation at this moment, it is normal."
A NEW GK FOR ARSENAL? Meanwhile, Arsenal are in advanced talks with Borussia Monchengladbach to sign goalkeeper Yann Sommer, according to the Sunday Mirror.
Sommer is also a transfer target for Barcelona, reports Marca.
