New Dashboard Confessional Album Set For February Release

Dashboard Confessional fans are buzzing after a new single release and album announcement. All The Truth That I Can Tell will be the ninth studio album for the Chris Carrabba-led outfit and will be available on February 25th.

“Here’s To Moving On” is the lead single from the new project. According to a recent post on social media, Carrabba alludes to the theme prevalent throughout the song, moving on.

In the spring of 2020, Dashboard’s 20th-anniversary tour was cut short by the onset of COVID. Just a few months later Carrabba was in a serious motorcycle crash. His recovery was complicated by the pandemic and ultimately had to relearn to walk and play guitar.

As a long-time rider, this wasn’t Carrabba’s first fall but it was certainly his worst. He’s persevered and put together a new collection of songs for fans and newcomers alike.

Tracklist:

  1. BURNING HEART
  2. EVERYONE ELSE IS JUST NOISE
  3. HERE’S TO MOVING ON
  4. THE BETTER OF ME
  5. SOUTHBOUND AND SINKING
  6. SLEEP IN
  7. ME AND MINE
  8. SUNSHINE STATE
  9. PAIN FREE IN THREE CHORDS
  10. YOUNG
  11. ALL THE TRUTH THAT I CAN TELL

Lyrics:

“Here’s To Moving On”

I feel like I find something new
To remind me of you all the time
A picture a hairband a song
Or this cork from this bottle of wine

The click of the thermostat kicking off
Just when it’s getting too warm
The drop in the pressure the
Smell in the air, when it’s starting to storm

-And I hate
To admit
That it’s true
But I like
That it hurts
When I do

Here’s to fighting less
Here’s to living more
Here’s to feeling alive again
Here’s to picking yourself off the floor

Here’s to waking up
Here’s to sleeping well for once
Here’s to knowing the things
That you wish you could change
Here’s to saying you’re fine when you’re not

Here’s to being right
Here’s to being wrong
Here’s to letting go
Here’s to moving on

I stand in one place and just listen
And let myself feel how it sounds
A little bit hollow, a little bit hopeful
A little bit down

This house isn’t empty, exactly,
-It’s settling down for the night
It’s creaking and cracking
And it seems familiar
But doesn’t feel right

-All that time
That it takes
To let go
How could I
Be the last
One to know

Here’s to fighting less
Here’s to living more
Here’s to feeling alive again
Here’s to picking yourself off the floor

Here’s to waking up
Here’s to sleeping well for once
Here’s to knowing the things
That you wish you could change
Here’s to saying you’re fine when you’re not

Here’s to being right
Here’s to being wrong
Here’s to letting go
Here’s to moving on

I’m getting up slowly
I’m still a bit spent
I’m still a bit tired

I feel a bit better this morning
Than I’ve felt in quite a long time

It’s funny I thought for a bit there
I’d never be able to deal
But I make some coffee
And I take a shower
And I start to heal

-And I hate
To admit
That I can
But I like
How it feels
That I am

So here’s to fighting less
Here’s to living more
Here’s to feeling alive again
Here’s to picking yourself off the floor

Here’s to waking up
Here’s to sleeping well for once
Here’s to knowing the things
That you wish you could change
Here’s to saying you’re fine when you’re not

Here’s to being right
Here’s to being wrong
Here’s to letting go
Here’s to moving on
