Dispatch 2022 Tour Announcement – US Tour Schedule
Dispatch is currently on their co-headlining tour with O.A.R., plus special guests Robert Randolph Band and G. Love on select dates! The indie-roots jam band will play their next show on August 9th in Indianapolis, IN, with stops in Highland Park, IL, Philadelphia, PA, Virginia Beach, VA, and more before concluding on September 10th in Irving, TX.
Dispatch concerts have been plentiful over the past year, as they set out last fall with Emelise and played the FreshGrass Festival in the spring alongside Sam Bush, Red Baratt, and more. That being said, they haven’t had a chance to play their annual summer trek in years and couldn’t wait to get back on the road with their friends in O.A.R. They’ve had a blast playing the best venues in the country, working through 25 years’ worth of hits that span every genre. We already know that they’re a jam band, and a very good one at that… but are they more indie roots, reggae-rock, ska, or even rap? Even Dispatch doesn’t entirely know, and the versatile artists would like to keep it that way.
The latest Dispatch album, 2021’s Break Our Fall, is as genre-bending as you’d expect, but songs like “May We All,” “All This Time,” and “The Legend of Connie Hawkins” still share a common theme. Recorded amid quarantine, the band had the time to rework the songs to perfection and reflect on the social injustices of the time. Events like the COVID-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter protests, and shaky political climate would soon become a central theme in their new songs, even if they didn’t know before March 2020.
“I’d say all this time, In demoing thirty songs, [we were] starting to feel the theme of the record, like what was the cornerstone, or the anchor be for it,” Dispatch guitarist Brad Corrigan told Hollywood Life. “All this time, it was this really thick narrative of all the different social injustices that we are used to now, sadly,” he continued,” But, now that we’re dads, thinking about those injustices — what are we going to give ourselves to so that the world is hopefully a better place for our kids to carry forward?”
Even though nearly a quarter-century as a band, several hiatuses, and multiple philanthropic efforts, Break Our Fall is some of Dispatch’s most powerful work yet. And they can’t wait to share these new songs, plus older hits like “Two Coins,” “The General,” and “Carry You,” at these summer 2022 Dispatch concerts. Get your tickets today!
