La Dispute

La Dispute Biography

“This century, as has been pointed out many times, is the century of emigration, enforced and voluntary. That is to say a century of partings without end, and a century haunted by the memories of those partings. The sudden anguish of missing what is no longer there is like suddenly coming upon a jar which has fallen and broken into fragments. Alone you collect the pieces, discover how to fit them together and then carefully stick them to one another, one by one. Eventually the jar is reassembled but it is not the same as it was before. It has become both flawed, and more precious. Something comparable happens to the image of a loved place or a loved person when kept in the memory after separation.”
~ John Berger

La Dispute is five close friends from the Upper Midwest with a mutual passion for using music as a means to express, challenge, inform, and connect, but also as a fantastic excuse to have fun, make tons of new friends, and travel anywhere and everywhere that people will have them. Always learning, often touring, sometimes writing (as much as time and circumstance allows), La Dispute has been making music for 3-6 years now (depending on how you look at it) and intends on continuing to do so for as long as they’re all physically and emotionally able to. Also of note, they love their friends and families immensely and are probably too proud about where they come from. Come say hello and they mean that.
