The 20th Anniversary edition of 'Bang Bang' is now available over at dispatchmerch.com. We made a super limited quantity this time around, which includes a bootleg 7" containing original missing songs and a special 7" square flexi.
We're teaming up with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence on the acoustic tour (which starts Sunday) to raise awareness about the 93 daily gun deaths in America and how we can prevent them.
Want to talk to other Dispatch fans about gun violence prevention? Ready to learn more about this issue and what we can do about it?
We're looking for four volunteers at each show to help their fellow fans to take action and help us cut gun deaths in half by 2025. Sign up here. Volunteers will receive free tickets and after show meet and greet passes.
Heading up to Vermont for Thanksgiving weekend? Dispatch will be playing a free all ages show at Killington Resort on Saturday November 25th as part of the Audi FIS World Cup weekend. More info here.
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

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.
Thanks to Matt Katsolis, Wade Yamaguchi, Jesse Schluntz and Nic McLean of Interpret Studios, Russell Brownley, Arthur Bradford, Jonathan Olinger, Jeycob Carlson, Light Gives Heat, The Find, Project Airtime, Modify Content, The Salvage Project, Love, Light & Melody, and How’s Your News? for all the support and see the rest of you out there soon.
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.
