Dashboard Confessional perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’—watch
“In the process of making this record, I decided I was going to talk about some subject matter, directly or indirectly, that I had not allowed myself to do so to do before. Those were rewarding moments. Not without their own challenges. Some of those things I had really at one point thought to myself, ‘I will never speak publicly about this thing or that thing, it’s not territory I’m willing to explore.’ Until I was willing to explore it and I did. All the truth that I can tell is the last song on the record because it was the last song that I wrote for the record. I knew it. I knew it even as I played that progression. The first time I thought, ‘Oh, this is it, this is the last one.’”
Dashboard Confessional also played three additional songs for the show's Off-Air video series, including “Here's To Moving On,” “Screaming Infidelities” and “Vindicated.”
