Featured Album: The Shade of Poison Trees

This is so far, the latest album of the band, Dashboard Confessional. The Shade of Poison Trees is heralded as a return to form, so to speak, departing from the “emo” style that Chris Carrabba pioneered, breaking away from the electric, full band sound of their previous two albums (Dusk and Summer and A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar) and returning to the acoustic sound that he was previously known for. The album comes a little over a year after the release of Dusk and Summer.

"These Bones" was Dashboard Confessional's second single off the album and was inspired by Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series of books.

I’ve been an avid fan of Dashboard Confessional since I first heard “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most”… Chris Carrabba has been crafting his lyrics in brandmarked poetry. The Shade of Poison Trees is a great album with pure acoustics in its entirety. Favorites among the list are: Where There’s Gold, These Bones, Fever Dreams, and Matters of Blood and Connection.

Fever Dreams. Chris Carrabba - so contagious. hehe ;p
