Dashboard Confessional is setting out towards a brighter tomorrow with today’s premiere of an inspiring new single. “Here’s To Moving On” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. “Here’s To Moving On” heralds the eagerly awaited arrival of the first all-new Dashboard Confessional LP in four years, All The Truth That I Can Tell, due via Hidden Note Records/AWAL on February 25. The album is available to pre-save and pre-order now. An album trailer premieres today via YouTube.
“I think in this song I find myself understanding what brought me to the mat and what it takes to get up off the mat,” says DC founder, frontman, and songwriter Chris Carrabba. “Sometimes what brought you to the mat are outside forces and sometimes it’s you, yourself. Or it can be all those things. But it does seem the only thing that gets you up off the mat isn’t outside forces – it’s always you.“

PRE-SAVE/PRE-ORDER ALL THE TRUTH THAT I CAN TELL
Written and recorded pre-Covid, Dashboard Confessional’s ninth studio album, All The Truth That I Can Tell is both a remarkable renewal and fortunate step forward for Chris Carrabba. Having ascended great heights over the past 20 years, Carrabba found himself at a distinct crossroads as the last decade came to an end. Running on fumes, unsure if he’d ever release another album, he waited. The songs eventually came, and though the project might’ve easily come to a screeching halt following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in June of 2020, All The Truth That I Can Tell stands among Carrabba’s finest – both an achievement of vision and a vital burst of artistic clarity, a strikingly potent musical look at Dashboard Confessional through a rediscovered keyhole. For the album’s production, Carrabba tapped James Paul Wisner who produced the band’s first two studio albums, The Swiss Army Romance and The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most.
“Honesty was at the heart of the writing process, at the heart of the recording process, and at the heart of this collection of songs,” Carrabba says. “I had the rare opportunity to be unflinchingly honest. But I think I would have thought in the early days that that would be commonplace. Now, I realize it’s some kind of cycle within your life and there’s great personal reward in accepting that.“

All The Truth That I Can Tell
Dashboard Confessional recently headlined a once-in-a-lifetime show at Nashville, TN’s world-famous Ryman Auditorium alongside very special guest Laura Jane Grace. The show was Dashboard Confessional’s long-awaited return to the stage after being forced to cancel remaining dates on last year’s sold-out Celebrating 20 Years of Dashboard Confessional: The #DC20 Tour. The band made its live comeback earlier this year with the Lonely Hearts & Lovers Livestream Event – their first virtual concert in over a year and Carrabba’s first live performance following the motorcycle accident. The event showcased an all-new version of Dashboard Confessional’s live band performing a 19-song set pulled from the band’s extensive catalog, filmed in 4K at Nashville, TN’s Riverside Revival Church.
Despite the various setbacks of 2020, Carrabba kept remarkably active, including Dashboard Confessional’s first-ever career-spanning compilation, The Best Ones Of The Best Ones, The Early Days vinyl reissue series – featuring the premiere pressing of Dashboard Confessional’s RIAA platinum-certified live album, MTV Unplugged 2.0 – as well as a partnership with Mondo to release three EPs – 2001’s So Impossible, 2002’s Summers Kiss, and a newly created Spider-Man 2 – all for the very first time on vinyl. Last year also saw the band release “Screaming Infidelities” b/w “Circles,” an all-new entry to the popular Spotify Singles series recorded at the famed Electric Lady Studios in New York City and streaming here.
In addition, Carrabba also teamed up with Nightowl Canning as a partner, investor, and ambassador for Canvino: Bottle-Quality Wine, In A Can™. Crafted by Gold Medal Winemaker Susy Vasquez and currently available in five varietals, Canvino is now shipping in 36 states, with plans to continue expanding reach into 2021.
