Chris Carrabba's next album as Dashboard Confessional will revisit the acoustic approach of the act's early releases. Due Oct. 2 via Vagrant, "The Shade of Poison Trees" was recorded during a 10-day stretch with producer Don Gilmore.

The track list has yet to be announced, but it will include the song "Thick as Thieves," which can be sampled on Dashboard Confessional's MySpace.com site. "The Shade of Poison Trees" comes quickly on the heels of last June's "Dusk and Summer," which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200.

Expect to hear a host of new songs on Carrabba's solo tour this fall, which, as previously reported, begins Sept. 14 in Rochester, Mich., and runs through Nov. 14 in New York.

Dashboard has one full band show on tap beforehand on Sept. 8 in Lehi, Utah.
