Marking twenty years since they first burst onto the scene, Dashboard Confessional are celebrating their first two decades as a band by teaming up with Mondo and Hidden Note Records to release a trilogy of EPs from early in the band's career, each one making its debut on vinyl. Order will open on Wednesday, October 21 at

Included in this trilogy are the So Impossible EP, Summers Kiss EP, and an all-new Spider-Man 2 EP. All three will be released on 10-inch, splatter-colored vinyl, with thematically-tied sleeve designs by original artist Joby Ford, linking them together as a trilogy. Each of these special, color vinyl editions will be limited to 1,000 copies. 

The Spider-Man 2 EP compiles music from Sam Raimi's 2004 superhero film, including "Vindicated" (a breakthrough hit for Dashboard Confessional), with the flipside containing two suites from Danny Elfman's underrated score for the film.

So Impossible, from 2001, was the band's second EP, and is a mini concept album following the narrator's relationship through a first kiss. From 2002, Summer's Kiss features four re-arranged versions of songs from the first album, Swiss Army Romance, which marked Dashboard Confessional's transition from a mostly-solo act by Chris Carrabba to a full band.
