This week, we're going back to the early 2000s pop-punk and emo scene for a collection of nostalgic trips down memory lane.
In partnership with Hidden Note Records, Mondo is proud to celebrate the 20th anniversary of DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL with the premiere vinyl releases of the SO IMPOSSIBLE EP and SUMMERS KISS EP, and complete the trilogy (so to speak) with an all new SPIDER-MAN 2 EP, celebrating the 2004 Sam Raimi masterpiece.
That's not all! Keeping with the era, we are also proud to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of NEW FOUND GLORY's self titled album, with an exclusive colorway of the LP.
As always, all new releases go on sale here Wednesdays at Noon CT.
SPIDER-MAN 2 EP 10-Inch Vinyl
Mondo, in partnership with Hidden Note Records, is proud to present the long-awaited trilogy capper to Dashboard Confessional's EP series that started in 2001 with the SO IMPOSSIBLE EP, and 2002's SUMMERS KISS EP, with the all new SPIDER-MAN 2 EP.
It's hard to properly capture how specific and significant the landscape of soundtracks were in 2004. "Music From And Inspired By" albums were all the rage, and none had more of a cultural impact than the soundtrack for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2. Very few of the songs on this album were included in the film itself, but Dashboard Confessional's "Vindicated" swept the world by storm and made him a household name nearly overnight.
We decided to pay tribute to this iconic album by releasing this hit song, in the spirit of a fictional 3rd Dashboard Confessional EP — and also honor to the composer of the film, the legendary Danny Elfman's incredible, sadly unheralded score — by featuring two score suites on the B-Side.
Featuring artwork by the original EP artist Joby Ford, to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band, this limited edition EP is pressed on Clear with White and Red splatter, and limited to 1000 copies, never to be pressed again.

SO IMPOSSIBLE EP 10-Inch Vinyl
Mondo, in partnership with Hidden Note Records, is proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Dashboard Confessional's 2001 EP SO IMPOSSIBLE.
For some, the biggest crossover song from Dashboard Confessional was a track called "Hands Down," which very few know actually debuted on this EP as part of a concept album, tracking the origins of a narrator's new relationship ("For You to Notice") through to their first date and kiss ("Hands Down").

SUMMERS KISS EP 10-Inch Vinyl
Mondo, in partnership with Hidden Note Records, is proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Dashboard Confessional's 2002 EP SUMMERS KISS.
Chris Carrabba's project Dashboard Confessional began as a solo acoustic act, quickly evolving into the band it is today. But for some, that transition from traveling bard to full-fledged rock band was ushered in by this 2002 EP, which features four fully arranged re-workings of songs from his debut album SWISS ARMY ROMANCE. He even makes a statement of intent in the last track by switching to electric for the epic grande finale of the EP.
