A week after backing out of opening duties for Beck’s summer tour, Dashboard Confessional have lined up a sixteen-date headlining outing to launch August 30th in Pittsburgh.
The band will be previewing its third studio album, A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar (due August 12th), along the way. The album, produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) follows the band’s 2002 MTV Unplugged album, and is the first studio set since Dashboard’s 2001 breakthrough The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most.
“We’re intent on capturing the energy of a Dashboard live show,” frontman Chris Carraba told Rolling Stone. “The recording process had a cool vibe, and the band has a strong connection with Gil.”
