For those who may have believed that post-hardcore was dead, may have not been paying attention to a band out of Grand Rapids, Michigan who goes by the name of La Dispute.
This band, consisting of Jordan Dreyer, Brad Vander Lugt, Chad Morgan-Sternberg, Adam Vass, and Corey Stroffolino, has been on the scene since 2004. Despite the ebbs and flows of the genre, La Dispute has been proving to many that it is post-hardcore here to stay.
This point will further be driven home when La Dispute hits the road this spring on a 21-date tour, spanning from the hometown of Grand Rapids to Seattle, Washington, playing in some of the best venues in the nation.
For those who haven’t heard of La Dispute, here’s a little background:
The band formed in 2004, and their debut EP (extended play) came out two years late, Vancouver. That EP set up La Dispute for their debut full-length album, Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair. The album put La Dispute on the map, and in March, the band will release their fifth LP, Panorama, which will be released before the band hit the road.
