Dashboard Confessional – Heart.Beat.Here
The last new song we heard from Dashboard Confessional actually came this past May – just Chris Carrabba and his guitar treating us to “May”. What followed was a summer co-headlining tour with Taking Back Sunday, and now, as we close out the year, it’s time to repeat that pattern. Coinciding with the announcement of an intimate club tour kicking off this January, we have another new song to enjoy, “Heart.Beat.Here”.
I have spent the last year and a half in the studio and we’re very close to finishing a new album… I’m very excited about these new songs and the album that we’re making. However, in a very real sense I feel like I can’t make a record without my fans being part of the process. There’s no substitute for the kind of immediate feedback that I get from the crowd when I play new songs. While I love the summer amphitheater experience and playing the old favorites to festival crowds, the place where I have always felt the purest connection with my audience has been in the clubs that I came up in. The venues where I could walk among the crowd and get to know them, the places where we erased the division between the band and the fans. And don’t worry, while I am so excited to share with you some of what to expect from Dashboard Confessional in the year to come, we will absolutely still play the favorites… I hope we all discover some new favorites along the way. – Chris Carrabba
