Dashboard Confessional Announces Fall Tour 2024

Today, Dashboard Confessional, announced their Fall Tour 2024 featuring special guests BOYS LIKE GIRLS and Taylor Acorn. Produced by Live Nation, the 28-city tour kicks off on September 10 at Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, NJ making stops across the U.S. in New York, Los Angeles, Houston and more before wrapping up in Irving, TX at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory on October 27.

Initially founded as an acoustic solo project by singer-songwriter/guitarist Chris Carrabba, Dashboard Confessional stands tall at the vanguard of an entire musical scene, adored for its groundbreaking sound and respected for its unwavering candor. Dashboard Confessional made an immediate impact with 2000’s The Swiss Army Romance, earning the Florida-based Carrabba applause and a passionate fan following for his intimate and intensely heartfelt songcraft. Carrabba expanded Dashboard Confessional into a full-fledged band with the following year’s RIAA Gold-certified The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most. The album proved a national breakthrough, fueled by seemingly nonstop touring as well as the now-classic hit single, “Screaming Infidelities,” the companion video for which received the influential MTV2 Award at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. Dashboard Confessional was suddenly a sensation, with high profile late night TV appearances and a string of increasingly bigger headline tours. 2002’s MTV Unplugged 2.0 furthered the band’s rising popularity, garnering them their first RIAA Platinum certification and first #1 album on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” and “Top Independent Albums” charts. Dashboard Confessional ascended even higher with 2003’s A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar. The album – which made a top 3 debut on the overall Billboard 200 – saw Carrabba developing his singular sound with more expansive arrangements that earned praise from such outlets as Rolling Stone, which hailed it as “easily the toughest, most assured music Carrabba’s ever made, summing up the vulnerable charisma that has made him a cult idol for fans who crave the kind of emotional realness that has totally disappeared from the mainstream-rock assembly line.”

With the wind at his back, Carrabba drove Dashboard Confessional through a series of chart-topping and critically acclaimed studio albums, soundtrack contributions, festival appearances, and sold-out headline tours. The band’s legacy was explored on a number of deluxe editions, re-recordings, and career-spanning greatest hits collection, 2020’s The Best Ones of The Best Ones. But after two extraordinary decades, Dashboard Confessional almost came to a screeching halt following Carrabba’s near-fatal motorcycle accident in the terrible summer of 2020, leaving him unsure of his band’s future. Thankfully, Dashboard Confessional’s ninth studio album, 2022’s All The Truth That I Can Tell, proved among their finest yet, both as cathartic achievement of Carrabba’s vision and a vital burst of artistic clarity. The band celebrated with multiple tours (including a hugely successful co-headline runs with Jimmy Eat World, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, and Counting Crows), global live streaming events, and top-billed performances at such festivals as Las Vegas, NV’s first-ever When We Were Young. The summer of 2024 now sees Carrabba and Dashboard Confessional continuing their unstoppable calling with a fresh round of ceaseless roadwork, with upcoming highlights including the eagerly awaited “Once More with Feeling(s) The Dashboard Confessional Emo Superjam” at Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo and a number of headline festival performances culminating in a triumphant return to When We Were Young for a full-album performance of 2006’s beloved fourth studio album, Dusk and Summer.
