Boston based trio Dispatch, one of North America’s greatest independent guitar bands, play KOKO 5 days before the release of their new LP ‘Circles Around The Sun’.
“We’ve been called the biggest band nobody’s ever heard of,” says Brad Corrigan, one of Dispatch’s three singers and multi-instrumentalists. "People either know everything about us or they know nothing. There never seems to be any middle ground."
How Corrigan, Chad Stokes, and Pete Francis met in college, formed a band, and — with no radio airplay, major label support, or significant press coverage — became one of the biggest draws on the live music scene.
Though Dispatch hadn’t released a full-length album since 2000, and even officially called it quits in 2004, their music continued to capture the hearts and minds of new generations of rock fans through pure word-of-mouth.
A 2004 farewell show at the Hatch Shell in Boston drew 110,000 people, including fans from Europe, South America, and Australia. Not one, but three 2007 shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden sold out immediately.
Their first LP in twelve years – and the band’s first ever European release – ‘Circles Around The Sun’ is the kind of all-American rock and roll statement of intent that Dispatch are famed for, and one which delivers the gutsy storytelling and radiant harmonies which will now endear them to a brand new audience.
