Dashboard Confessional Unveils 20th Anniversary Best-Of and Tour
Chris Carrabba is celebrating 20 years of Dashboard Confessional, both via a newly announced career-spanning compilation and an anniversary tour.

The comp is called The Best Ones of the Best Ones, and it will arrive on January 31. It features various tracks from across the project's long-running career.

A press release explains the record like this:

The album is a thoughtfully curated collection of the band's most beloved songs and features selections from all seven studio albums, the So Impossible and The Drowning EPs, and the band's legendary, Platinum-certified MTV Unplugged performance. From start to finish, The Best Ones of the Best Ones showcases the profound durability of Dashboard Confessional's music over the past two decades.

You can pre-order The Best Ones of the Best Ones as a double-LP, as well as in multiple bundles.

As for Dashboard Confessional's 20th anniversary tour, it will begin early next year just after the release of the compilation. It will find the project performing 2001's The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most and follow-up effort 2003's A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar during select two-night stints in various U.S. cities.

Other dates will find Dashboard Confessional playing a mix of songs from both albums. The Get Up Kids and Piebald will join as support on select dates of the tour.
