Dispatch Dispatch first appeared on the indie music scene back in 1996. The band formed while members How Corrigan, Chad Stokes, and Pete Francis were attending Middlebury College in Vermont and, after achieving modest success, called it quits in 2002. After almost a decade-long hiatus, the New England jam band reunited in 2011 for a national tour and put out their first release in eleven years. Now the band is gearing up for the release of their new album, Circles Around the Sun, in stores this week. The band will be promoting the album on a U.S. tour this fall, including a stop at the Tower Theater on Tuesday, October 9 at 8pm.
