Introducing: Twin Forks

It's amazing how some things just fall into place. In the fall of 2012, Chris Carrabba (of Dashboard Confessional) was scheduled to appear at San Francisco's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival on the heels of completing a new covers LP and solo tour.

The festival gave Chris the opportunity he was looking for and through that, Twin Forks was born.

"Onstage at HSB, I realized, I have all this delicate stuff, but I like to party. I like the feeling of release and drive onstage. We only played it as a trio and we weren't called Twin Forks yet, but as soon as we got offstage, we talked about all the ones we should have played that were closer to the ones we play now. It was instantly evident." - C. Carrabba

Chris, along with band members, Suzie Zeldin (mandolin), Jonathan Clark (bass) and Ben Homola (drums), continued to work together to hone a sound that is built on their mutual love of Folk and Country music. The result is their debut album, Twin Forks, scheduled for release on February 25, via Dine Alone Records.

The band went on a brief tour last year and even gave fans a free Tour EP that you can listen/download below. A personal favorite of mine is Hard Times, which may sound like a complete transformation, but still maintains the emotion and simplicity of his earlier work.

Preorders are currently available on iTunes and through Dine Alone Records. Vinyl geeks should act quick as they are offering an extremely limited pressing of 300 on clear vinyl.
