The wait for new music from Dashboard Confessional is over. ‘Crooked Shadows’, the first Dashboard Confessional album in eight years, is due out on February 9, 2018 under Fueled By Ramen.

Its first single, the empowering track “We Fight”, has been released along with the album announcement. Listen:

Speaking about the track, Chris Carrabba had this to say:

“When I wrote ‘We Fight’ I thought it was just about the music scene that I came up in — a place where people who’d never quite fit in anywhere felt they actually belonged. When we began playing the song live on our summer tour, I realized that ‘We Fight’ held a much broader meaning. It’s a song for people who, in spite of their differences, can find common ground in their convictions and foster those into something bigger than themselves. That, to me is something worth fighting for.”

‘Crooked Shadows’ follow’s 2009’s ‘Alter The Ending’. Check out its album art and the official track listing for ‘Crooked Shadows’ below:
