An Intimate Acoustic Tour

We’re embarking on our first acoustic tour starting November 26th in Vancouver. We’ve heard requests for an acoustic tour over the years so we're returning to our roots and visiting some of the best small venues across the country, most of which we’ve never played before. We’ll also be playing two sets each night which means that we’ll get to revisit so many songs, old and new. Full info on each on the tour dates page.

We’re ending the tour in Boston with three unique shows at The Paradise to celebrate Calling All Crows' 10th anniversary and their continued work for women's rights through service and activism. There will an intimate pre-show reception with conversation and music before each show and a service project that Sunday. More on that soon.

Tickets don't go on sale to the general public until Friday, but you can get yours on Wednesday at 10AM venue local time with the presale code: LOCATION12

"Only The Wild Ones" Official Music Video

Yowsa! A summer tour we just couldn't wait for didn't wait for us either...

Such amazing bandmates + crew, opening acts, on stage collabs, and so many first time stops for us along the way. It was great to meet so many fans who traveled in far and wide. Another positive, hopeful, and inspiring time to see so many come together. It continues to blow us away!

To keep the love coming, we'd like to present to you the official music video for "OTWO," inspired by our time on and off the road. From our friends at Camp Jabberwocky in Martha's Vineyard to the beautiful Ileana of Managua, Nicaragua — it is so vital to remember there's always more that unites us than divides.

America, Location 12 Is Out Today

It's finally here - America, Location 12! It's our first album in five years and we're so stoked to share it with you. Play it LOUD in your Camaro or get your headphones on and hit the basement.

We started working on it nearly two years ago. We had about 30+ songs and whittled it down to the 11 that made the record. It’s been a really great journey, and so we’re excited to finally release the birds.

Thanks so much for anticipating the new album with us over the past few months and for spinning the new tunes as we’ve released them. It's a special thing to be in a band for 20 years and have fans that have been us every step of the way. It means more to us than you could ever know. We're so psyched to journey forward with you.

The album is available now wherever music is sold, streamed or downloaded.

"Curse and Crush" Relix Session

The video team at Relix dropped by Chad's house a few weeks ago to film a new song called "Curse and Crush" which will be on America, Location 12.

A Message From Pete

To our beloved DISPATCH fans:

Pete here. It is a genuine honor and pleasure to be part of the DISPATCH family - alongside Chad and Brad - and to feel your love and support from all the years. There is nothing quite like it.

Last year, I was unable to join the European Tour. And I am realizing now that its likely I will not be able to join Chad and Brad on the road again this year.

Like others you may know, I battle depression. In order to get better, this problem requires my complete focus and every bit of energy I can spare.

Making the decision to take a leave-of-absence from the band has been hard. Yet, the extraordinary compassion, love and patience I feel from our close DISPATCH family… from Chad, Brad, Steve, Dalton, Sybil, and from my wife Katie, has now given me the strength to move ahead and the ability to come to this decision.

In sharing my decision with you publicly for the first time, I feel a much needed sense of relief that will allow me to focus all of my energy on my healing. My entire family continues to offer their unconditional love and support as well.

It is a tricky process to try to live and cope with any mental illness. The suffering and pain can sometimes be intense – and can come and go without warning. Yet the warmth from friends, family and fans has helped me to endure, to persevere – and mostly, to continue to have hope.

So I will be taking some time off from the band now to try some new approaches and learn how to better manage my illness. I am grateful that I can share this personal piece of myself and what I am experiencing with all of you. My hope is that I will also get to share with you some of my successes as I travel what may be a rocky and sometimes uncertain path toward well-being.

While I can’t tour with Chad and Brad right now, the good news is that I was able to work with them to record our latest album! I am SO proud of our work and can’t wait for all of you to hear it.

THANK YOU again for all the LOVE you have already sent my way. It has truly been an awesome journey so far and I will continue every day to look forward to seeing you before too much longer.

Your friend,
