Dashboard Confessional has unveiled the "deeply personal" official music video for their inspiring new single, “Here’s To Moving On.” The touching new video is out now following its exclusive premiereearlier today via Consequence’s “Origins," which said, "Dashboard Confessional’s latest single 'Here’s to Moving On' is an exercise in deep, personal honesty. Yet despite the track — and in fact, much of the album it comes from, the forthcoming All the Truth That I Can Tell — being penned months before Chris Carrabba’s near-fatal 2020 motorcycle accident, its meaning shifted in the wake of that frightening trauma."

“It’s been one hell of a year for us all (and then some),” says DC founder, frontman, and songwriter Chris Carrabba. “I hope this song can be a small reminder that no matter what challenges life might throw at us today, it’s always worth fighting for a better tomorrow. I feel so very fortunate to be able to share this with you. To the incredible team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making that possible." “Here’s To Moving On” is available now. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “vintage Dashboard,” the soulfully optimistic track heralds the eagerly awaited arrival of the first all-new Dashboard Confessional LP in four years, All The Truth That I Can Tell, due via Hidden Note Records/AWAL on Friday, February 25, 2022; pre-orders/pre-saves are available now.

Written and recorded in the months before COVID, Dashboard Confessional’s ninth studio album, All The Truth That I Can Tell is both a remarkable renewal and fortunate step forward for Chris Carrabba. Having ascended great heights over the past twenty years, Carrabba found himself at a distinct crossroads as the last decade came to an end. Running on fumes, unsure if he’d ever release another album, he waited. The songs eventually came, and though the project might’ve easily come to a screeching halt following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in the summer of 2020, All The Truth That I Can Tell stands among Carrabba’s finest, both an achievement of vision and a vital burst of artistic clarity. Produced by James Paul Wisner – who previously helmed Dashboard Confessional’s now-classic first two studio albums, The Swiss Army Romance and The Places You Have Come to Fear – the new album is a strikingly potent musical look at Dashboard Confessional through a rediscovered keyhole.
“Honesty was at the heart of the writing process, at the heart of the recording process and at the heart of this collection of songs,” Carrabba says. “I had the rare opportunity to be unflinchingly honest. But I think I would have thought in the early days that that would be commonplace. Now, I realize it’s some kind of cycle within your life and there’s great personal reward in accepting that.”
Dashboard Confessional will celebrate All The Truth That I Can Tell with a wide-ranging tour schedule, to be unveiled soon. For updates, please visit dashboardconfessional.com.
