Bristol venue SWX is set to host rock group Dashboard Confessional this November.

The American band from Boca Raton in Florida will bring their first UK tour to venues across the country including in London, Portsmouth and Nottingham.

Chris Carrabba headlines the group and plays alongside Scott Schoenbeck, Armon Jay and Chris Kamrada who will perform their alternative, indie and acoustic rock set in Bristol.

The band won the MTV Video Music Award for their song Screaming Infidelities in 2002 and were also nominated for a Teen Choice Award for their record Stolen in 2007.

They released their latest album, Crooked Shadows, in February and one of their most successful songs, Vindicated, featured in the 2004 Spider-Man 2 film.

The event will take place at the Bristol venue on November 8 which starts at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £25, are available at
