Dispatch are hitting the road this summer, with 33 concerts across the U.S. scheduled to start on June 16 and run well into late September. The upcoming tour was announced on Wednesday afternoon, and will see the easygoing rock band playing in both indoor and outdoor venues including Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, New York’s Central Park SummerStage, Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, and closing out with some hometown shows at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston where the band originally spent their early years back in the late 1990s.

The upcoming tour will certainly help promote their sixth and latest studio album, America, Location 12. The 11-track LP was released last summer, and was initially followed by a tour alongside fellow New England jangle-rock outfit, Guster. This time around, Dispatch will be joined on select dates throughout the tour by Nahko & Medicine for the People, Raye Zaragoza, Scatter Their Own and Stephen Marley with Rebelution. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming run will begin pre-sale starting Feb. 26, and can be purchased by clicking here.

“As spring fades to warmer weather, rally your friends and plan your road trips!” the band shared on their Facebook to go with Wednesday’s announcement. “Thanks always for making the drives and effort to come see us, and any live music for that matter. See you out there!”

The band also revealed in the announcement that the back-to-back shows in New York, Austin and Boston will each feature different setlists each night, giving fans a perfect excuse to stay an extra night before heading onto the next city. It’s never too late to start planning a summer road trip!
