Dispatch's 2011 concert tour, the first in a decade, is very big news indeed. "Our fans have stuck with us so far," acknowledges Corrigan. "And we feel a desire to give them some new music. They've given us life, and we want to give them some life back. We just want to be as authentic as possible. We're just so revved and fired-up to see what it will be like to stand together onstage again."
Social responsibility has always been a major component of the Dispatch culture and this summer's tour is no exception. This summer the band will roll out their Amplifying Education campaign, which will focus on educational issues here in the United States. Not only will fifty cents from each ticket sold go to benefit education in each local market, but the band is planning additional programs to spotlight education in every market they visit.
