--------------------------------------

Marriage, birth, death, departure; for Dispatch, the only constant these past few years has been change. Add to that an exceedingly tense political climate, long-overdue reckonings on racial justice and gender equality, and a runaway global pandemic, and you’ve got an idea of what’s been fueling Chadwick Stokes’ and Brad Corrigan’s writing lately.

“It’s a scary time,” says Corrigan, “but it’s also a super inspiring time. I think people are realizing now more than ever how important it is to be fully present and engaged with what’s happening, how much we all belong to and rely on each other.”

It’s that spirit of collective awakening, of embracing change in all its pain and beauty that defines ‘Break Our Fall,’ Dispatch’s extraordinary new 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. Heady as that all may sound, the music is pure Dispatch, blending infectious roots rock with hints of reggae, folk, and blues, and the production is similarly lean and energetic, leaving plenty of space for some of the group’s most pointed, political lyrics to date. The result is a timely and essential album from a band still breaking new ground two-and-a-half decades into its storied career, an ode to resilience and survival that manages to find hope and joy on even the darkest of days.
