Last June, Chris Carrabba did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he revealed that a new DC album was in the works. Earlier this May he spoke to them again about this new record and how it’s coming along:

“I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter but I’m really excited to be doing it because I don’t think it’s ever felt this much like the beginning again…No one’s paying attention,” he told the publication. “No one’s looking over my shoulder to see how the songs are going or when the record’s coming out. There are no notes from anybody. I’m just quietly toiling away like I did on my first album [2000’s The Swiss Army Romance].”

Vintage Dashboard?! It certainly seems like that’s what we’ll be getting, especially if this release is anything to go by.
2009’s After The Ending left a lot to be desired and many fans could see why this would be the end of their favorite emo band.
All these years later, Dashboard Confessional release a song titled, “May”, and give us hope for a re-energized DC movement and in turn an emo rock revival.
