As a thank you to their fans for one of their fastest selling tours, Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba covered some of his favorite songs for a surprise EP appropriately titled "Covered + Taped". The EP includes songs by The 1975 ("Sex"), Julien Baker ("Sprained Ankle"), Justin Bieber ("Love Yourself"), and Sorority Noise ("Using"). "I love covering great songs by great artists," Carrabba explains. "These are some songs I feel very connected to right now. Enough so that I felt I had a way of making them my own in some small way." The EP is available now for streaming on Spotify.
The group has added three shows in Nashville, a show in Santa Ana, along with an additional show in Chicago. Shows have been selling out as soon as they go on sale and tickets are becoming more scarce by the day. Surprise shows will be announced spontaneously throughout the tour for those who may not have been able to attend or for those who wish to go twice. Every song in the catalog has a chance to be played along with the possibility of new unreleased tracks such a "Heart.Beat.Here," which contains the group's classic sound that fans from around the world have grown to love since the band's birth.
