Dashboard Confessional are an American alternative rock band who have been making music as a band since 2000. The band consists of singer, guitarist and chief songwriter Chris Carrabba, who has been joined by various musicians over the years. After some name changes and member recruitment, Dashboard Confessional came into the public eye thanks to publicity from MTV2 and MTV Unplugged. They managed to beat artists like Norah Jones, The Strokes and The Hives to win the MTV2 award at the VMAs in 2002 for their single, “Screaming Infidelities”.
The following year, Dashboard Confessional’s album, “A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar” was released, and it reached number 2 on the Billboard Chart. It was their most popular release, and the singles “Hands Down”, “Rapid Hope Loss” and “As Lovers Go” came from it. In 2004 they recorded the track “Vindicated” for the movie Spider-Man 2, which played over the end credits. The song ended up being very popular with music fans, and meant that the band’s next album sold well too. Further albums of new material were released until 2010, when Chris Carrabba’s first Dashboard Confessional album was re-released as a special edition vinyl. It featured artwork, lyrics and exclusive merchandise. Carrabba toured solo in order to promote it; playing the entire album in full at each show.
Dashboard Confessional showcase their music in a rather unique way, giving each of their tracks a personality and aesthetic of their own. It’s an art form, and their music is full of interesting samples, beats and widespread genres. From psychedelic to power pop, there isn’t much that Dashboard Confessional wouldn’t try to bring to their audience; and whatever it may be, it’s always by their own rules
