Ruston Kelly – “Screaming Infidelities” (Feat. Chris Carrabba) (Dashboard Confessional Cover)
Ruston Kelly is releasing a compilation of covers called Dirt Emo Vol. 1 next month. It’ll include his previously released covers of Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” and the Carter Family’s “Weeping Willow,” as well as covers of songs by Blink-182, My Chemical Romance, Saves The Day, and Wheatus. “I don’t play country, this stuff is dirt emo,” Ruston remarked in a press release. It’s like crying in a barn or angsting in your room with a banjo.”
Today, Kelly — who put out his debut album, Dying Star, last year — is sharing his cover of Dashboard Confessional’s iconic “Screaming Infidelities,” and he got the project’s own Chris Carrabba to sing with him on the track. Carraba previously joined Kelly as a special guest at his show in Nashville earlier this year.
