There has never been mistaking Sinéad O'Connor for anybody else. A voice born to break as many hearts as windows, as tender as it is lethal. The face, simultaneously that of ocean-wide-eyed angel and shaven-headed warrior queen. And the spirit, courageous in its conviction, undaunted by controversy and fortified with endless reserves of resilience.

"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, and arguably the biggest independent rock band in history, is a remarkable story. In March 2012, Dispatch embarks on its first-ever European tour, performing at theatres in London, Paris, Berlin, and Zurich, before appearing at the Bonnaroo Festival in June, followed by the August release of the band's first full-length studio album in 12 years, Circles Around the Sun. Not wanting to let down those fervent souls, Dispatch decided to record new music, which led to last year's Dispatch EP and now Circles Around The Sun. "We all write so we knew there was material out there," Stokes says. "If we were going to do a tour, we wanted to play new songs." Another motivator was knowing that they were giving back to the fans who had given so much to them. "It's a dream to know that your music is actually a part of people's experiences and becomes tied to special moments in their life," Corrigan says. "That makes it all worth it. Also, it all just feels fun again. We're so fired up to be great friends and to travel the world and see places we've never been before. I mean, come on. It doesn't get much better than that."
* DISPATCH will be offering live audio downloads of every show on the North American leg of the Circles Around The Sun Tour within 48 hours of the show ending.
