In a music industry cluttered with talent trying to make it to the top for the sake of fame and a big payday, La Dispute continues to stick with what inspired them to pick up their instruments in the first place: using music as a way to express, challenge, inform, and connect.
The Grand Rapids, MI fivesome got their start in 2004 and have been steadily releasing music for over a decade. Pulling influences from different genres, La Dispute’s music has been described as post-hardcore, progressive rock, screamo, and even jazz and blues. Lyrically they get me almost every time, and while the meaning behind their songs can be a bit hidden, when it clicks, you’ll begin to wonder where this band has been all your life!
La Dispute will be rocking out El Rey Theatre on August 25th with support from Balance and Composure and Souvenirs, and guess who has some tickets to give away?
