its called "The Shade of Poison Trees" and it comes out October 2nd

"The album marks a return to the signature acoustic sound that Carrabba first developed on early Dashboard Confessional albums like 2000’s The Swiss Army Romance and 2001’s The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most." So if you like DC as much as I do than your in luck

and i think i thinnk its going to be an EP not fullscale album

it sounds like a mix between dusk and a mark
i like what i'm hearing so far though
something tells me he might be more acoustic on this album

It really does sound like a nice mix between the two.

I hope its more acoustic, i like this song...I'll be looking forward to this one

wow... they sure write fast. feels like their last cd just came out.
Oh, I'll break them down, no mercy shown,
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time,
Watching her, these things she said,
The times she cried,
Too frail to wake this time.

I'm glad the new one is coming soon; the sooner D&S can be forgotten the better.

Woah, I hope he goes back to his roots on this one. This just might be good.
I'm a person.

Hmm... well, I guess I like the old Dashboard better because of a number of songs that were just exceptional. But I always felt that apart from the few truly great songs on the old stuff, most of the songs were blaah. The last album, however, was generally decent, but lacked the "great" songs. So I guess I don't care which way they go with the new record.

I like this one, sounds awesome

I love his lyrics, they arent incredibly deep or anything but they're good
Beauty Supreme

Yeah you were right about me

Little Bombs is meh, but I'm sure it'll grow, but I rather like Think As Thieves. Roll on the new album- a day after my birthday

Yeah really. Wow.

Well, if it's less like 'Dusk and Summer' and more like 'A Mark...' etc, I'll pick it up.

^^^ Yeah. I'd really like it if they did more songs like Vindicated

Finally, he went back to what was the thing that got most real fans into him. Even the cover art looks like the older stuff. I had given up on him after A Mark, and then the last one which was awful imo. Who knows, I didn't think it would ever happen but I might buy a new Dashboard cd.

Edit: Man Little Bombs almost brings me back like 3 or 4 years ago. It's strange how much it reminds me of his old stuff, which is an awesome thing.

Loving the 2 clips so far, hopefully the album will be a recreation of the poor quality of an album 'Dusk & Summer'.

Umm, bit torn between the two at the moment. 'Thick as thieves' is decent, but the acoustic guitar is dropped a long way back in the mix whereas 'Little bombs' is exactly what I want back from Chris. It's what I enjoyed about DC from the start and after a couple of relatively underrated (by early fans especially) albums that took his sound in other directions, this track makes a beautiful return to the kind of songs he wrote that I wanted to play. Could prove to be a really good album if he's managed to mix the two styles up consistently like in these two tracks.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I think i'll do some horrendous fighting to get to the front of the Dashboard opening, then some serious fighting to get out even faster to get by the tour buses.
