MAY 29, 2013 – LOS ANGELES, CA – Dispatch kicks off Circles Around The Summer Tour 2013 tonight at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Special guest Allen Stone will support the Nashville and Birmingham dates and Guster will join the band for their shows in Boston, Chicago, and Berkeley. Dispatch will also appear at several festivals this summer, see below for a complete list of dates.

Dispatch is set to release a new double live album, Ain’t No Trip To Cleveland Volume 1, on June 4th. The album will feature their favorite takes from touring throughout 2011 and 2012. You can preview the release over at Grooveshark where it is NOW STREAMING. Rolling Stone also recently premiered the first single, “Get Ready Boy” LIVE. You can check it out HEREVolume 1 is the follow up to Circles Around The Sun, which was released last August via their own Bomber Records and was their first studio album in more than a decade. Produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, Jonsi, The National), Circles Around The Sun is an eclectic rock and roll rock that delivers on the gutsy storytelling, compelling songwriting, and radiant harmonies that earned the band its diehard fanbase.

Since the very beginning, Dispatch has been a band that has stood up and rallied its fans behind causes that challenge the status quo. In continuing the tradition of integrating a message with their music, the band have been participating in a variety of activities through out their tour to support their Amplifying Education campaign, which mobilizes the Dispatch community to take small actions to address America’s education crisis and make a difference in the lives of children across the country. Eight lucky Dispatch fans had the opportunity to spend one week traveling and volunteering with Dispatch on the Fall 2012 Circles Around The Sun Tour as part of the Amplifying Education Alternative Break Tour. The filmmakers at Take Part documented their entire trip and created a web video series entitled Dispatch: Turning The Tide. To watch the webisodes, click HERE. In keeping with tradition, $1.00 from every ticket sold on the Circles Around The Summer Tour will be donated to the Amplifying Education initiative.

ABOUT DISPATCH: Dispatch is Chad Stokes, Brad Corrigan, and Pete Francis.  After forming in New England in 1996 and through intense word of mouth and fan loyalty, Dispatch went on to become one of the biggest draws on the live music scene, and arguably one of the biggest independent rock bands in History.  The band released their debut album in 1996, an acoustic-driven folk-pop affair called Silent Steeples, on their own Bomber Records followed by 1998’s reggae-flavored Bang Bang. In 1999 the band released their third album Four Day Trials. After a brief hiatus during which various members pursued solo endeavors, in 2004 the group organized a free show in Boston on the Esplanade, anticipating perhaps 20,000 people would turn up. The concert became the largest show in independent music event history (documented in the feature film The Last Dispatch). In 2011 the trio decided to record new music, which led to last year’s Dispatch EP and now Circles Around The Sun.
