About La Dispute

HERE, HEAR 1 - 4

Over the course of the last twelve years, we’ve written and released music for a catalog distinct but connected to our primary one: 13 “companion” songs, in various forms and approaches, that we call “Here, Hear.” The idea is to pull the curtain back on the songwriting process, and to further showcase and explore the individual voices, styles, and influences that come together to make the more traditional La Dispute songs.

Now, with touring on hold and home sheltering necessary in the middle of a public health crisis—and with your support—we’re going back to it, and further than before. To not just pull the curtain back on the process, but to tear it off entirely, making new “Here, Hear” music on this page, together, and with you.

HERE, HEAR 2020

In the coming months, we'll be writing new songs, each starting with a creative prompt from one of the instrumentalists in the band, to enter in that parallel catalog. Along the way, we’ll post updates of the process—demo clips, podcast conversations, Q&A sessions, lyric drafts, supplemental visual art, etc.—with exclusive content and early access for those who can afford to contribute as patrons to this page, all culminating in the release of new "Here, Hear" material (NOTE: everyone who contributes will have access to the same rewards at the same time, no matter the pledge level, the tiers acting as a sliding pay scale). By contributing, you are helping us stay active and afloat while the industry shifts, giving us the opportunity to continue creating music and art for you and for us, until the day we can again write and play music together.

PODCAST

Every two weeks throughout the writing process we’ll post new episodes of a podcast centered around the creation of each new “Here, Hear” song. Featuring two or more members, each entry will follow a PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE structure that traces the song’s evolution from conception to creation, connecting it along the way to both previous songs and writing experiences, and to future ones. Available wherever you stream podcasts (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Overcast, Castbox, etc.).

PATREON

The music industry (like many others) is in a period of significant tumult and uncertainty. By subscribing to this Patreon page, you’ll get early and exclusive access to its perks and rewards, and will help us weather the financial storm brought on by the indefinite postponement of live music in the process. Subscription includes:
  • Early access to new episodes of the ongoing podcast
  • Further behind-the-scenes insight including lyric drafts, demos, and supplemental art
  • Interactivity through polls and Q&A sessions
  • Discounts and exclusive access on merch
IMPORTANT: ALL rewards are available to ALL patrons, regardless of contribution level. Think of it like sliding scale pay that will help us continue creating, and pick a tier you can afford.
