(PCM) Dispatch has recently released their new double live album “Ain’t No Trip To Cleveland: Vol. 1” . The album features their favorite takes from touring throughout 2011 and 2012. Dispatch recently finished up their Circles Around The Summer Tour 2013 as well as appearances at several major music festivals around the country such as Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, Firefly, and most recently Electric Forest.
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 throughout 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.
We had the amazing opportunity to catch up with Dispatch for an absolutely hilarious interview at the recent Firefly Festival in Dover, DE to talk about the creation of the band’s new live album, their plans for a dating website, glowing in jars, and of course a little Pearl Jam singing thrown in for good measure! Chad, Brad, and Pete were some of the nicest guys and such an incredibly fun interview, so please take some time to check it out below:
