Chris Carrabba recently confirmed that he’s in the process of writing new material for Dashboard Confessional.

Recording in his home studio, Carrabba clarifies: “No one’s paying attention. 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].”

Carrabba notes the new Dashboard music stays true to the group’s original sound – popularized in the pop-punk and emo genres – and teases the lyrical content of Dashboard’s music has always been about honesty. “Something I’ve always written about is the challenging and joys of navigating your way through life.”
