Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional sat down with Purevolume to talk about the group’s comeback album.

I’m writing songs that I really believe in; just writing form the gut and just writing the kind of record that wish I made right after A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar. We went away on purpose and while we were away we very quietly began making this record so we could do it without feeling the expectation or responsibility to the fan base. I think that is our biggest responsibility is to make a record that we’re deeply connected to that isn’t written around some idea of an end result. It’s really written around the idea of potency of each song by itself.
