Pre-sale tickets will be available starting Tuesday, December 5th at 11 a.m. ET, with an additional AT&T pre-sale launching the same day at 10 a.m. local time. Spotify, Ticketmaster, Live Nation and Citi Bank will begin additional pre-sales on Wednesday, December 6th, with all remaining tickets available to the general public on Friday, December 8th at 10 a.m. local time.

Last month, Dashboard Confessional announced the long-awaited Crooked Shadows – their first LP since 2009’s After the Ending – due out February 9thThey also released the album’s lead track, “We Fight,” and detailed the song’s inspirational themes, which evolved with the shifting political landscape under President Trump.

“I thought for sure it was just about how I found a place in the world, which was worth fighting for, which was the music scene that I come from,” singer-songwriter Chris Carrabba told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. “I wasn’t cool in school. I didn’t fit in. I found this music scene and it fostered this community and it fostered the people in it. … But then the political climate has changed in such a way that, almost days after writing that song, America started to feel really regressive somehow. And all these great strides we made during the last administration had been threatened to be undone and I realized that people have beliefs worth protecting, worth standing up for and I found a residence in that.”
