Summer Stops 2019

The thermometer has barely cracked 32° for the past few days, but we're already thinking about summer. With the warmer months in mind, we're proud to announce the Dispatch Summer Stops, a series of summer shows in iconic outdoor venues.

Dispatch will be hitting up Red Rocks in Colorado on Sunday, June 9th, Wolf Trap Pavilion in Virginia on Saturday, June 29th and Thompson's Point in Maine Saturday, July 20th, and bringing out different openers for each show; The Record Company at Red Rocks, Anderson East at Wolf Trap and Moon Taxi at Thompson's Point. Tickets and more info are available in the Tour tab.

Tickets for Red Rocks and Thomspon’s Point are on sale now.

Wolf Trap is a series show that has a member presale starting February 15th at 10AM local with the Dispatch Fan Presale starting February 20th at 10AM local with code: WIMPY

In true Dispatch fashion, each day will begin with a service project. It'll be your chance to hang with the band while making a difference in your community. If you're road tripping out to a show, it'll also be a great opportunity to meet some fellow Dispatch fans. Learn more about the projects here and find out how you and your friends can help.

Is anyone going to do all three Summer Stops? Drop us a line at info@dispatchmusic.com once you have your tickets and we'll put something special together for you and your concert companions.

Fall 2018 Acoustic Tour

Our summer tour is almost over, but we're going back out on the road this fall for a few completely acoustic shows with our friend Raye Zaragoza, who joined us this summer, with stops in Madison and Milwaukee, WI, WeishFest in Chicago, and Detroit. These are our first acoustic stops in these places and we're so excited to bring back last winter's show style for those of you that haven't gotten to see it yet. Grab tickets early now with presale code: LOCATION13. See you out there!

New Song "Letter to Lady J"

"Letter to Lady J" was written in the name of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, and all the other innocent people killed by overly violent law enforcement.

The song starts off with the idea of a friend writing a letter to Lady Justice, asking her to please come out from her isolation and out into the streets where she is so badly needed.

Not only are people dying, but there is largely no accountability for this lethal action taken by the police. It makes us wonder, how far have we really come since the days of Dr. King’s marches when there is still racial profiling of this magnitude that results in the death of an innocent man or woman. It keeps happening. We've got to stand up, nonviolently come together, take pride in our differences, revel in our connection to each other, and fight for civil rights, for love, and justice for all.

"Dear Congress, (17)"


In the wake of the Parkland shooting, and the Students Stand Up and Never Again movements, we've released "Dear Congress, (17)." The song was born on our last tour, and it was written to raise awareness of these tragedies and urge reform. Text DISPATCH to 877-877 to demand lasting change from Congress.

Written from the perspective of someone who just buried their loved one, "Dear Congress, (17)" is the personal side of observing Washington throw empty condolences to grieving families while accepting NRA campaign money.

How is it possible our "elected" protect the gun lobby more than the human lives they represent? How many more people have to die? How many more kids’ lives have to be erased before we pay attention and make simple common sense changes to how we buy and use guns in our country?

Available today on Apple Music, Spotify, and other music services, all proceeds from the song will be donated to our friends at Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing gun violence in America.

Here are a few more ways to make a big difference...

Donate to Parkland Survivors and Families on Go Fund Me - Go Fund Me has compiled a listing to easily donate to many of the victims for health care costs, as well as the families and loved ones of those lost.

Contact Your Rep Through Brady - You can reach out through the link provided to create a letter to your Congress members and ask them to expand background checks to all gun sales, ban assault weapons and large capacity magazines, and support state-level extreme risk laws.

Contact Your Rep Directly - All Congress members have contact information publicly available, and twitter handles are easy to come by. We encourage you to reach out directly or tweet at them, beyond the Brady Campaign form letter.

March for our Lives Sign Up - Sign up to receive more information as marches across the country, planned for March 24th, get organized over the coming weeks. Another tab on the site for "Sister Marches" will take you to a listing of Facebook events to RSVP and talk with other people in your community planning and looking to attend your local march.

Tickets are on sale now.

Joining us on different legs of the tour is Raye Zaragoza and Scatter Their Own.

Much like last summer, we’ll be hitting up a bunch of new cities on this tour. We’ll be playing some new songs that we haven’t tried live, as well as some songs that we recorded, but didn’t go on America, Location 12. We played some of them in Europe in 2016 and they'll be making their way back into the fold. Bringing back some old tunes too that haven’t seen the light in a while.

There will be a handful of special tour dates on this one...

Colorado Weekend - The weekend of June 15th-17th will be a special Dispatch Colorado Weekend, with two concerts. One in Vail on the 16th and one at Red Rocks the 17th.

Rebelution & Stephen Marley - on July 14th we'll be performing a unique show in Bangor, ME at Darling's Waterfront Pavillion with Rebelution and Stephen Marley.

Two Night Stands - There will be a few back-to-back shows this summer featuring different sets. First will be two shows in NYC's legendary Central Park at SummerStage on July 18th and 19th and two nights in Boston at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion to close out the tour.

Thanks always for making the drives and effort to come see us, and any live music for that matter.

See you out there!
