Dispatch & O.A.R.

DISPATCH and O.A.R., two of the most successful touring acts in the states, will hit the road together this summer for their first-ever North American Co-Headline Tour, which is scheduled to start in July 2022. While the bands have previously played on the same bill, this tour will mark the first time the two have shared a tour together.

DISPATCH - formed by Chadwick Stokes and Brad Corrigan while in college in Vermont - have forged their own path outside the mainstream music industry as one of the most successful artists in the roots rock scene. Over the course of a slew of acclaimed studio and live albums and countless tours and festivals, the band has gone on to become one of biggest success stories in independent music history, selling out three nights at Madison Square Garden and drawing over 100,000 fans to a massive outdoor show in their adopted hometown of Boston without any traditional radio or major label support. The band recently released their extraordinary 8th studio album, Break Our Fall, to critical acclaim.

O.A.R. is one of music's most consistent & dependable rites of passage for rock fans across the country. The platinum-certified Rockville, MD band has sold out Madison Square Garden multiple times, filled Red Rocks Amphitheater on countless nights, earned platinum and gold plaques across 11-full-length albums, lit up the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration, and built one of the most committed fanbases in the world. The group - Marc Roberge [lead vocals, guitar], Richard On [lead guitar], Chris Culos [drums], Benj Gershman [bass], and Jerry DePizzo [saxophone, guitar] - formed while still in high school and this year they will ring in 25 years together by strengthening their special bond with audiences everywhere.

Throughout their rise, both bands have taken every opportunity to use their success for good, launching charitable organizations to fight poverty and mass incarceration, raising funds and awareness for environmental causes, schools and hospitals on the road, and even traveling as far afield as Nicaragua and Zimbabwe to work with children and communities in need. O.A.R.'s Heard the World Foundation raises money to create education-based opportunities, including music therapy programs in hospitals, scholarships, donating computers to schools and even providing an infrastructure in Flint, MI, to help with the ongoing water crisis. DISPATCH's Chadwick Stokes' Calling All Crows joins bands and fans together in collective activism that has raised more than half a million dollars, while DISPATCH's Brad Corrigan's Love Light + Melody helps amplify the stories of children who live in extreme poverty.

Marriage, birth, death, departure; for Dispatch's Chadwick Stokes and Brad Corrigan, the only constant these past few years has been change. Add to that the divisive political climate, long-overdue reckonings on racial justice and gender equality, and a global pandemic, and you've got an idea of the tensions fueling the band's extraordinary upcoming album.

Marking the band's eighth studio release, the songs on this record speak not only to the band's personal evolution, but to human nature itself, charting a course from denial and resistance to growth and acceptance through deep introspection and empathetic character studies.
Break Our Fall
Album FeatureBreak Our Fall
The music is pure Dispatch, and the five piece continues to grow and push their boundaries, taking surprise turns without ever abandoning the signature sound that's made them one of independent rock's most indelible acts over the last two-and-a-half decades.

The songs on Break Our Fall blend infectious roots rock with hints of reggae, folk, and blues, and the productions similarly lean and energetic, leaving plenty of space for some of the group's most pointed, political lyrics to date. The result is an ode to resilience and survival, a timely and essential album that still manages to find hope and joy on even the darkest of days. - dispatchmusic.com
Since their emergence in 1996, the musicians have tirelessly delivered a signature brand of rock steeped in alternative scope, roots tradition, and pop ambition. Among many highlights, 2008's All Sides yielded the platinum single "Shattered" and bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 a space they continually occupied with King [2011] and The Rockville LP [2014].

Beyond packing arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast, they've given inspiring performances on The Today Show, CONAN, the 2015 Special Olympics Opening Ceremony, the ESPYS, in addition to playing their hit song "Peace" at the coveted Times Square New Year's Eve Celebration on the eve of 2016.
The Mighty
Album FeatureThe Mighty
The Mighty finds O.A.R. touching on the various styles that have long been trademarks of the group's music. Several songs (including "Be Easy" and "Knocking at Your Door") boast reggae rhythms and infectious pop melodies-a stylistic fusion that has been a hallmark of the O.A.R. sound from the start. There's also a decided island vibe to "Oh My," a cheery tune with horns providing a prominent hook. On "Miss You All the Time," "California" and "Free," the group's sound leans more toward folk-pop, as the agreeable melodies and sunny vibes of the songs come wrapped in a nice blend of acoustic and modern synthetic textures topped off with uplifting backing vocals and harmonies. The group's ability to craft appealing ballads continues on the stripped back "All Because of You." - Shepherd Express
