Last month Dashboard Confessional revealed that they would be returning with Crooked Shadows, the band’s first new album in over eight years (album art / track listing attached). Set for release February 9th on Fueled By Ramen, Crooked Shadows features the lead track “We Fight,” streaming now on Fueled By Ramen’s Official YouTube channel and at all DSPs. Rolling Stone declared, “The powerful song explores the fighting spirit and strength found within a community,” with UPROXX hailing, “It’s infectious and manages to hit on what the band does best, pulling huge emotional swells from unexpected sources.”
Produced by Chris Carrabba and Jonathan Clark with co-producer Colin Brittain, Crooked Shadows is the result of a near decade-long period of immense self-examination for Carrabba. Crooked Shadows explores Carrabba’s reclamation of the simple yet extraordinary moments in life thatlong stood as the unsung heroes of his songwriting, as he reflects on experiences of his own and those closest to him. The result is a deeply cathartic body of work that traverses the complications and vulnerabilities of relationships while scrutinizing the possibility of self-improvement.
