It's been ten years since Chris Carrabba unleashed his sensitive brand of emo-pop with The Swiss Army Romance, his debut as Dashboard Confessional, back when he performed by himself, armed only with an acoustic guitar. To celebrate that record's 10th anniversary, Carrabba will hit the road for a 17-date solo tour and release a limited-edition pressing of the album. The intimate trek of theaters and clubs kicks off with two nights in Carrabba's home state of Florida and wraps up with two nights Chicago. Tickets are available now -- check out dates below.
Carrabba staged an acoustic tour with his full band last year -- read SPIN's review.
The Swiss Army reissue will be a vinyl-only release, limited to just 1,000 numbered copies. The newly-remastered version will be issued on five 7-inch records, bundled with new artwork, previously unseen photos, tour laminates, and guitar picks. The reissue will be available on November 16, and fans can preorder it here.
