Dispatch has started their U.S. run of shows. The tour kicked off in Seattle this past Friday and it will wrap up on October 12th in Atlanta, GA. The band is touring in support of their first album in over a decade, Circles Around The Sun, which was released on August 21st via the band's own Bomber Records and debuted at Number 24 on the Billboard 200 Album's chart (their highest chart entry in the 16-year career).
Along the way the band will make two television appearances, including performances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (9/26) and VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live (10/5).
In addition, the band has made their 2002 tour documentary Under The Radar available to its fans to view on their YouTube channel. The documentary will be unveiled in segments over the next few weeks and will soon to available to watch in full.
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 will participate in a variety of activities through out the 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. Special service events have been planned for September 29th in Denver, October 3rd in Chicago, October 5th in Metro NYC, and October 6th in Boston.
