DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL SHARES “BURNING HEART” – LISTEN
ALL THE TRUTH THAT I CAN TELL
ARRIVES VIA HIDDEN NOTE RECORDS/AWALON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25
Dashboard Confessional has shared “Burning Heart,” the glorious new single from their eagerly anticipated new album, All The Truth That I Can Tell. The song was written in a green room in Manchester, England in the winter of 2018 and then performed onstage an hour later.
“In the song, there’s this sense of, Okay, here we go! Are you ready? Because it’s starting!” says Carrabba. “This was the first one I wrote for the new album and it’s the one outlier of the bunch. That night, I wrote a song that I was so certain of. Not that it was just good, but that it was powerful in some way, too. The conceit of this song reflects the fact that I’m holding in a lot. I have a lot to say to the person I love in this moment. The idea in this setting is that I’m here to fight for this. I wanted a song that took a look at a hard conversation with a sense of although things aren’t right now, they may be able to be set right if it’s needed badly enough, wanted badly enough. In this setting, the conceit of the song is between two people in a relationship — well, you only hear one side. That’s the bigger part of the conceit: what if you only heard the one side of the conversation?”
The first all-new Dashboard Confessional LP in four years, All The Truth That I Can Tell arrives via Hidden Note Records/AWAL on Friday, February 25, 2022; pre-orders/pre-saves are available now.

PRE-ORDER ALL THE TRUTH THAT I CAN TELL
All The Truth That I Can Tell was unveiled last year with the inspiring first single, “Here’s To Moving On,” joined by a “deeply personal” official music video streaming now following an exclusive premiere via Consequence’s “Origins,” which wrote, “Dashboard Confessional’s latest single ‘Here’s to Moving On’ is an exercise in deep, personal honesty. Yet despite the track – and in fact, much of the album it comes from, the forthcoming All the Truth That I Can Tell – being penned months before Chris Carrabba’s near-fatal 2020 motorcycle accident, its meaning shifted in the wake of that frightening trauma.”
|Written and recorded in the months before COVID, Dashboard Confessional’s ninth studio album, All The Truth That I Can Tell is both a remarkable renewal and fortunate step forward for Chris Carrabba. Having ascended great heights over the past twenty years, Carrabba found himself at a distinct crossroads as the last decade came to an end. Running on fumes, unsure if he’d ever release another album, he waited. The songs eventually came, and though the project might’ve easily come to a screeching halt following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in the summer of 2020, All The Truth That I Can Tell stands among Carrabba’s finest, both an achievement of vision and a vital burst of artistic clarity. Produced by James Paul Wisner – who previously helmed Dashboard Confessional’s now-classic first two studio albums, The Swiss Army Romance and The Places You Have Come to Fear – the new album is a strikingly potent musical look at Dashboard Confessional through a rediscovered keyhole. |
“Honesty was at the heart of the writing process, at the heart of the recording process, and at the heart of this collection of songs,” Carrabba says. “I had the rare opportunity to be unflinchingly honest. But I think I would have thought in the early days that that would be commonplace. Now, I realize it’s some kind of cycle within your life and there’s great personal reward in accepting that.”
