Having a nice trail of quality songs from their previous albums, Dashboard Confessional easily slipped to the Top 20 position on Billboard Hot 200 chart. The band that deliver their music in certain easiness sold 48,000 copies of 'The Shade of Poison Trees' in the first week of its release, a showdown from their previous two releases, but an applaud for an indie band. For one thing, the band is all but commercial when it comes to releasing the album. "When we made the record, we didn't want to think in terms of keeping all the pop fans we gained over the summer interested," manager Rich Egan said. In fact, before 'The Shade of Poison Trees' was dropped in stores, frontman Chris Carrabba has even announced a sixth album that already has more than 30 pieces waiting to be cut. Consistency and integrity are probably the right words to describe the band.
