La Dispute Interviewed for Blurt Blog

 

 

The Grand Rapids, MI-based punk
band gets on the couch for blogger John B. Moore.

 

Hustle over to John B. Moore’s latest “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up” blog charting punk pulchritude (and just plain ‘tude) – this month he interviews La
Dispute about their latest album Wildlife and the challenges of growing up within a milieu often celebrated for it’s
eternal teenager-dom.

 

Explains vocalist Jordan
Dreyer, “We
were at a different point in our lives; three years older and being confronted
by a different set of questions and challenges. In a way I think the older you
get the more complex things become, and the record is indicative of that…. Essentially,
we had all these stories and we needed a vessel to house them. The
book/annotations idea gave us that and gave us the thematic diversity to
accomplish all the things we wanted to musically, which was quite a bit. Three
years time didn’t just give us new experiences and stories; it gave us a whole
new understanding of who we are as individual musicians and as a group.”
