Dispatch hit a major career milestone when they played an outdoor concert in Boston in 2004 that drew more than 110,000 people and were dubbed by Rolling Stone as the hosts of the largest independent music event ever. Three years later, the band continued to impress fans and critics alike with three consecutive shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in ties to their philanthropic work in Zimbabwe, becoming the first independent band to sell out the historic venue. In 2011, the band officially reunited to release new material, including a six-song EP and their first full-length studio album since 2000, “Circles Around the Sun.” They have since embarked on multiple sold out arena tours across the globe and have released their most ambitious musical effort to date “America, Location 12” (2017).
Marking a “noticeably new direction for the band’s sound” (Paste), the album has introduced a “reinvigorated, triumphant” (Boston Globe) Dispatch to a whole new audience of receptive fans. The breakout single “Only the Wild Ones” marked Dispatch’s first ever Top 10 hit at AAA radio, and has already been streamed more than eight million times on Spotify. Their newfound radio success continues with the current single “Painted Yellow Lines.’ Their newest album is expected to launch this fall.
