Alternative rock outfit Dashboard Confessional has unveiled plans for a fall tour, beginning Aug. 30 in Pittsburgh and wrapping Oct. 7 in St. Paul, Minn.

The Chris Carrabba-led band will be touring in support of its upcoming Vagrant album, “A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar,” due Aug. 12. The first single, “Hands Down,” is now available for paid download from Apple’s iTunes Music Store.

The new disc was produced by Gil Norton (the Pixies, Foo Fighters) and includes such songs as “Carry This Picture for Luck,” “Rapid Hope Loss,” “Ghost of a Good Thing,” “Several Ways To Die Trying,” and “Morning Calls.”

It’s the follow-up to Dashboard’s last album, “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers tally and has sold more than 400,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

New Epic act Vendetta Red will open most dates. The Seattle group is touring behind its major-label debut, “Between the Never and the Now.”
