La Dispute Give Away Discography For Free

In the spirit of Christmas, La Dispute are giving their entire discography away for free via Bandcamp for today only (December 25th).

Any money donated will be given to 826michigan, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students aged 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and teachers who inspire their students to write.

The band released the following statement:

"Folks, first and foremost, a heartfelt happy holidays to you and to yours. I sincerely hope you’re all doing something enjoyable with family and/or friends and/or a significant other, or just maybe enjoying a relaxing evening alone with popcorn or a similar snack. Whatever.

Whatever it is you’re doing, whether it be alone or with company, I hope it’s treating you well. I, for one, just watched Home Alone with my family, or a portion of my family (some siblings have families of their own now), and I’m feeling pretty great. Anyway. To the point!

In the spirit of the holiday (I’m not 100% sure what that means exactly, but it’s a nice excuse), we and our friends at No Sleep have once again decided to gift any and all interested parties with our entire discography from Vancouver to Wildlife on a free/donation basis starting at midnight EST time tonight until midnight EST tomorrow. That’s 24 hours of free/donation-based downloads of every piece of recorded and released material from our however-many-years of recording and releasing material.

Of course, if you are at all able (we know not everybody will be) we kindly request any possible donation you can afford in exchange but we do not require a minimum. If you’re broke and you want the songs, by all means go for it. If you’ve never heard our band and you’re curious but don’t want to give your hard-cashed legal tender to a band you don’t know, by all means go for it. If you like our band but feel that art is no ones property and should be exchanged freely over the internet for no fee than absolutely go for it. The option is there. However, if you like our band and want to download but don’t want your money in the hands of us 5 greasy-handed nerds than, well, you’re in luck, because all the money donated by those downloading in the 24 hours tomorrow will be donated by us to an organization here in our home state called 826 Michigan that is doing fantastic and inspiring things for people who deserve fantastic and inspiring things. By which I mean the children. Here goes, from the website:

826michigan is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students aged 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. 826 opened."
