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)

Here, Hear II (2008, released as a 7”)

    They do indeed close with The Last Lost Continent on this tour, in case you were wondering. (2) Saw them live last night in NYC and they killed it. Great stage presence.

    I'm actually hoping for a Ronnie Radke guest vocals on their new album.

    I remember when I was all true punk and got mad that the Menzingers signed for Epitaph and refused to listen to them despite them being my favorite band at the time. I used to suck
