La Dispute Give Fans Pay-What-You-Can Option For Complete Discography

The holidays are the best time to give back to the community and once again, La Dispute will be doing the same.

Earlier in the day, the band revealed they would once again be giving fans the chance to “pay-what-they-can” for the band’s complete discography, as well as a couple of unreleased tracks, on their Bandcamp.

Any and all donations given to the band through this will be donated directly to The Wellhouse, an organization that helps combat homelessness in Grand Rapids, MI.

Read the letter directly from the band to their fans advising them about this great opportunity to give back to those who are less fortunate than the rest of us.

“OK, let’s try this again.

Greetings!

It’s hard to believe that yet another year is coming to a close. It’s been a whirlwind– releasing our 3rd full-length album, Rooms of the House, touring for nearly 4 months straight, and taking multiple short bursts around the world to play various events and festivals with new friends and old. In recent months, we’ve been fortunate to be able to spend time with our families and loved ones, making plans for the future and working towards new things.

In keeping with tradition, we wanted to do something special this holiday season that would be our way of saying thank you to all those who have supported us and stayed with us throughout the years. All this, whatever this is, has become more than any of us could have possibly imagined. It’s overwhelming, really. Baffling even, at times. Ultimately, it’s an honor to be a part of it and we’re so grateful to be able to share it with all of you.

Well enough chit-chat, let’s get to the goodies. As we have done in the past, on December 25 we are opening up our Bandcamp page to pay-what-you-can downloads with the stipulation that all donations will be given to an organization of which we are locally connected to. This year, we have again chosen to support the Wellhouse in Grand Rapids, MI. It is especially pertinent this time of year to consider those who will not have the privilege of shelter and warm food, good company and gifts, while so many of us freely travel to our homes. Wellhouse Grand Rapids has been combating the effects of homelessness by creating spaces and providing opportunities for people to step out of their current situations. You can find more information about the work they are doing at their website (I’ll post below) which we encourage you to check out.

As far as the music goes, you’ll find that there are a few new things up for your downloading consumption, including two previously unreleased BBC sessions, one from earlier this year and another from back in 2011 when we visited Maida Vale with Touche Amore.

A note about downloads: if you are planning to download several albums or songs, please consider combining your donations into one lump sum on one of your downloads, instead of multiple small donations. This will help minimize fees and maximize the money that will be able to be donated.

Thank you for being you.
