This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast begins with a talk about Blink-182 exhaustion and yet our need to talk about Tom DeLonge's new song. I am not a fan. Thomas likes it. We discuss if we're grading Tom on a curve, the overall impact of not having Jerry Finn as a guiding force in the Blink world, and the plausibility of the whole Blink-183 rumors. From there we talk about how underrated Dashboard Confessional seems to be and the band's return, a bunch of albums got announced this week and we touch on a few, and then we finish up the episode answering a question about being self-employed and needing to be self-motivated. Thomas and I share stories about striking the balance...

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.

Last week, I got the chance to chat with Chris Carrabba (of Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever fame) about his new band, Twin Forks. During the interview, Carrabba opened up about his long-held aspiration to pursue folk music, the slow and steady formation of the new band, an upcoming tour with Augustana, his current feelings about his other musical projects, his opinions on the modern mainstream folk resurgence, and his friendship with Butch Walker. Check out the interview here and the review of the new Twin Forks album here.

Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.

PropertyOfZack recently sat down with Chris Carrabba (Further Seems Forever & Dashboard Confessional) and discussed how the upcoming FSF record came to be, the future of FSF, and more.
From The InterviewI donít really know how to answer that. Iím not really sure. We have dates planned around the record release, and weíre planning a lengthier tour as well. Iím aware that Iím the only guy who can say yes to anyway we want to do it. I canít be the one to answer that. I think itís likely that weíll do a lot of touring on this record since they havenít toured in years, and they love it. I could see us touring a lot on this record, but I donít know.

From the InterviewI thought [Dashboard] was just going to be this one-month tour. That would be it, and I never really went home from it. It had its own thing. I resisted it for a minute, but I realized that it was what I was looking for.
