Dashboard Confessional are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, and it all started with The Swiss Army Romance at the turn of the century. The acclaimed record was released two decades ago today, harboring one of the best emo songs to ever grace our headphones in “Screaming Infidelities.”
More on Dashboard Confessional
As mentioned, Dashboard are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. Along with a compilation album and tour, they also dropped newly found live footage. Leader Chris Carrabba is revealing to the public a live video of a 2001 performance of “Screaming Infidelities” that he found on a VHS tape in his basement storage.
Dashboard Confessional’s compilation, titled The Best Ones Of The Best Ones, includes songs from all seven full-lengths, the So Impossible and The Drowning EPs as well as their MTV Unplugged performance.
On top of that, Carrabba is offering fans a fun throwback by way of the rediscovered live footage. The clip was filmed in Hartford, Connecticut, shortly after releasing their breakthrough record, The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most.
Carrabba also compiled a Spotify playlist breaking down the last 20 years of emo music. In addition to his own songs, he included Taking Back Sunday, the Get Up Kids, Say Anything, Thursday, Saves The Day, My Chemical Romance and more.
