Places you have Come to Fear the Most
  Chris Carraba started hi adventure as front-man for indie outfit Further Seem Forever with the concept of Dashboard Confessional rising out of his desire to play all of the songs he was writing, not just the ones that fit with the Further Seems Forever Sound. Since then Chris has devoted all of his time to his music and been on tour with acts such as Face To Face, New Found Glory, and the New Amsterdams just to name a few.

Deluxtone Rockets Green Room Blues Tooth & Nail
  Green Room Blues is The Deluxtone Rockets' second album, continuing the rumblin', fevered, black leather-clad, early rockin' twang of their swankabilly debut, but adds a grittier, tougher grasp of real life to the follow-up. This obsession with real, raw, honky-tonkin' American music has inspired great songs like "Judgment Day," "Darkest Night," "Wolftown Blues," and an unexpected but liberating cover of The Cure's "Lovesong."
