Last week, I got the chance to chat with Chris Carrabba (of Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever fame) about his new band, Twin Forks. During the interview, Carrabba opened up about his long-held aspiration to pursue folk music, the slow and steady formation of the new band, an upcoming tour with Augustana, his current feelings about his other musical projects, his opinions on the modern mainstream folk resurgence, and his friendship with Butch Walker. Check out the interview here and the review of the new Twin Forks album here.
Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.
Chris Carrabba has started a new group called Twin Falls. The band consists of himself on vocals and guitar, Suzie Zeldin (The Narrative) on mandolin and vocals, bassist Jonathan Clark and drummer Ben Homola (Bad Books). You can read more details about the group over at AltPress.

At New Found Glory and Dashboard Confessional's acoustic show in Salt Lake City, I asked Chad when or if the NFG/DC split is coming out. He said that the 7" split will be for sale on the last couple shows of this tour.
During the past few months while Butch Walker was recording his new solo album, he also produced the new Dashboard Confessional and Never Shout Never records, as well as 5 tracks on Weezer's new album (he also co-wrote the current single from the album "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To").
The high-res artwork for Dashboard Confessional's Alter the Ending can be seen in the AP.net Gallery. Additionally, we've uploaded some new promo shots, which you can see at the corresponding links below.
