Dusk & Summer
After nearly two years worth of writing and recording Dashboard Confessional is set to release Dusk and Summer, the band's fourth studio album for Vagrant Records. Produced by Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Linkin Park) and recorded in Los Angeles and New York, Dusk and Summer contains some of the finest songs of the band's career. In addition to Gilmore, Dashboard Confessional also enlisted the production skills of famed U2 collaborator Daniel Lanois, whose signature sound Ã¢Â€Â“ both viscerally powerful and intricately beautiful Ã¢Â€Â“ can be heard throughout the album. This is the first studio album that Dashboard Confessional has released since 2003's million-selling A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar.
Originally conceived as a way for Carrabba to write acoustic based songs outside of his band Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional Ã¢Â€Â“ singer/guitarist Carrabba, guitarist John Lefler, bassist Scott Schoenbeck and drummer Mike Marsh Ã¢Â€Â“ has since become a modern rock institution.
For Dusk and Summer Carrabba chose to reconnect with Gilmore, a producer he last worked with on "Vindicated," his contribution to the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. In the time leading up to the new album's recording, Dashboard Confessional recorded an MTV2 Album Covers session with R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe and was asked to open a series of concerts for the legendary rock band U2. Working so closely with those who have influenced his work inspired Carrabba to ask Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz to perform a guest vocal on the track "So Long, So Long."
Dusk and Summer's first single "Don't Wait" will arrive at commercial radio later this month with a full-scale North American tour to follow shortly after the album's June 27 release date.
