Grand Rapids MI, United States (2004 – present)

La Dispute, formed in 2004, is five close friends from Grand Rapids, Michigan with a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted.
Their style combines elements of and in a very experimental way to something that can hardly be put into a single genre.

Untitled 7” (2008)

    I can't believe people choose "Rooms of the House" over "Somewhere At The Bottom..." or "Vancouver". "Wildlife" is still pretty damn good but Rooms of the House still remains a slow grower and a slight disappointment to me.

    If you want it to be it can be. I like to call bands like La Dispute, Defeater and Touche Amore angsty-manchildcore. Its a genre to me

    On an unrelated note is sadcore even a legitimate genre? It seems made up.

    You think Jordan ever experimented with his sexuality? I mean if girls were the source of my depression and song writing I might.

    Also listened to Chiodos again in years, I thought I hated them because they were popular. Turns out I stopped listening to them because of the horrible screaming vocals.

    My oldest account got banned for joking around with the guys at the Between the Buried and Me shoutbox. They said I was trolling despite not making fun of the members or the band itself. I had 16k The Dear Hunter plays I want back ;_;

    I got banned but I convinced them to un-ban me using my absurd amount of charisma.
