Dispatch will rock across the continent beginning in Colorado in mid-June.  The critically acclaimed indie band will be joined by Nahko & Medicine For The People, plus Raye Zaragoza and Scatter Their Own on select dates.

Dispatch’s new album, America, Location 12, has been receiving accolades since its release last June.  Relix described the L.P. as “an infinitely enjoyable campfire collection of harmony-laden jewels,” while Pop Dose described the record as “an eclectic and wonderful thing” that “posits its own stories and about what makes the pulse of these United States beat in the first place.”

What’s more, the album’s “Only The Wild Ones” single turned out to be the band’s first-ever Top 10 hit on AAA radio and has been streamed more than 8 million times on Spotify.

The box office gods also loved Dispatch last year.  A browse through the band’s 2017 touring history shows several sold-out theatre and club shows.  Box office results reported to Pollstar showed the band averaging approximately 1,840 tickets sold per gig with an average nightly gross reaching just over $68,000. The upcoming tour will cover a lot of ground as well as months, from the band’s Vail opener June 16 to two nights at Boston’s Blue Hills Bank Pavilion Sept. 20-21.  The plan calls for two nights at New York’s Central Park Summerstage and a twofer at Austin’s Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheatre.  Single stops include Asbury Park, Atlanta, Minneapolis and Philadelphia.

Tickets go on sale March 2.  Be sure to visit Pollstar’s Dispatch page for further updates.
