"Carrabba's ability to drop hugely emotive choruses into three-minute pop songs has become its own form of classic American songwriting."

Alternative Press, August 2006

"It was paradise by the dashboard light for the 2,800 or so fans who caught emo heartthrob Chris Carrabba's show... Carrabba is perhaps the most adept at straddling the line between serious rocker and spokesman for disaffected teens everywhere."

Winnepeg Sun, July 2006

Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba has long been a favourite of Australian audiences. On his last Australian tour, crowds were word perfect as they hung on his every note.

For Dashboard fans, it's been two long years between tours, but the wait is finally over. Dashboard Confessional will return to Australia this September to perform shows with his band in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth!

Since his last Australian sojourn, Carrabba has been busy writing and recording a new album Dusk and Summer (out now through Universal). The release hints at a new direction for Carrabba; who backed by a full band still offers plenty of those sing-along choruses fans have come to know and love.

"I decided I needed to explore that full sonic realm again... I think everything is cyclical. I'll be back to me and a guitar at some point. But people are hopefully embracing what I'm doing now... It's still me; I'm just taking a different avenue to get there."

Dashboard Confessional's shows have a history of selling out in Australia, so fans hoping to see Chris Carrabba should get in quickly when tickets go on sale on FRIDAY 4 AUGUST.
