Head over to Noisey to check out Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional's take on some of the "emo revival" bands.
This song made my hair stand straight up (I am aware that it grows that way anyhow). "The Scope of All of This Rebuilding" is a harmony and eventually gang vocal masterpiece of power, which in moments drops down to just one singer and becomes compelling in a new way. I had a visceral reaction to this song. It's undeniable. I remember when I heard Saves the Day’s Can’t Slow Down, and I was like, well, I'm going to start this over and I'm going to listen again and again. It's that feeling.

Chris Carrabba wrote this year's American Idol coronation song.
“It’s just too good to be true,” Carrabba tells Billboard. “He found a way to make it instantly his own song. What more can you want as a songwriter? That is what you do. You write these songs with your heart invested in it and as an expression of who you are and hope to be. It just speaks volumes to his talent.

Julie Beck, writing for The Atlantic, about Dashboard Confessional:
In my high school bubble, it was cool, or at least unobjectionable, for Dashboard to be my favorite band. When I got to college, it became quickly apparent that this was something to hide. Emo was narcissistic, whiny, embarrassing. To be referenced ironically or, preferably, not at all. Emotion wasn’t cool. You know what was cool? Pretention.

We all know Taylor Swift and Hayley Williams are the best, there's no hiding that. They both have a mutual friend Abigail, who is a huge Dashboard Confessional fan, who just so happened to turn 25. What did the two do for her birthday? Just invite Chris Carrabba to play at her intimate party. You can watch the videos to witness how awesome it is.

It looks like Benjamin Homola will be drumming for Dashboard Confessional.

Chris Carrabba is bringing back Dashboard Confessional.
As we slowly bring dc back I find myself listening to 'hell on the throat' and realize how much of those lyrics what dc began to feel like. After time away I couldn't be more excited about today's show and dc's future, whatever that may be.
