Dispatch has unveiled the official music video for their single and title track from their forthcoming album, Circles Around The Sun. The video, which premeired last week on Vevo.com, was directed by Eric Heimbold and is dedicated to Larry Perry, a young disabled man who (legend has it) was sent unwillingly into space by NASA in the ‘60s. The video features footage of the band and Larry during various point of his life from childhood to adult as well as archived footage from NASA.
“Circles Around The Sun is the legend of our friend Larry Perry, who passed away this past year," guitarist-vocalist Chad Urmston told Rolling Stone. Whether the legend of Perry’s voyage into space is actually true is still debated amongst conspiracy theorists and his story has been told in How’s Your News, an American television series and feature film that aired on MTV and captivated audiences. The video is a tribute to Larry. To find out more about Larry Perry, click HERE.

Nettwerk Records has signed Dispatch to a label deal for Europe, and will release their upcoming album Circles Around The Sun in mid-August. This is the band's first studio album in 12 years, and first ever label-supported release in the Europen territory.
Earlier this year, Dispatch made their way over to Europe for the fist time in their careers. Despite having never released an album or toured there previously, Dispatch sold out the majority of their tour dates, and were forced to move their London show to a bigger venue due to popular demand. The sold-out show in Cologne, Germany was streamed live by German music television show Rockpalast and can still be viewed HERE.
