Updated: 2013-08-05T18:01:42Z

The founder and lead singer of Dashboard Confessional is coming to the Riot Room with Twin Forks, a four-piece Americana/folk band based in Florida. The date: Oct. 3, a Thursday. Tickets go on sale at noon Friday. Prices: $12.50 to $16.

The band also features former members of the Narrative, Manchester Orchestra and Bad Books. Earlier this year, Carrabba told a writer at a blog called Midcoast Station about the founding of Twin Forks:

“I have been interested in making this kind of music for a long time now. A few years ago I picked up my guitar and started writing and it has grown from there. You see, being part of Dashboard Confessional the fans expected a certain sound from us. I felt like I had to write songs in the style of Dashboard and couldn’t detour from that. Now I can and it means so much to me that people are enjoying and feeling the love and happiness that I am creating with Twin Forks.”
