The band came together in the year 1990, when the three members met in college and decided to form a band together. Initially, the name of the band was One Fell Swoop, but they changed the name in the year 1996, and named themselves Dispatch. The band did not sign with any label, and only performed independently. Their fan base kept growing with each gig they performed, and many people began to notice the potential of these talented upcoming stars. They released seven albums without any label, but still managed to attract a large amount of attention and sold off the albums in large numbers. Three of the albums were based on their live concerts, and became extremely popular with the fans, because of their style of performance and great music. Live concerts were their forte and the band was known for improvising on stage, which made the performances all the more real.
In the year 2002, the group announced that they would be breaking up, and gathered together for one last show for their fans. The concert took place on the 31st of July, 2004 at the Hatch Shell. The show came to be called "The Last Dispatch" and was widely believed to be the biggest show in the history of independent music. It was an international event and people from more than twenty different countries came to attend the concert. The rough estimate of the number of people in the audience was 110,000. Later the same year, some portions of their last concert got released on a two-disc set of DVD/CD. The title of the CD was All Points Bulletin.
In the July of the year 2005, the band released a film which was named Last Dispatch. The film documented the last twelve days of the group together and explained how they had managed to become the band that had changed the history of independent music. They released the movie in Boston and a large number of their fans showed up to see their film, which was also attended by Pete, Brad and Chad themselves. Currently, all three members of the group are working independently in the music business with Chad fronting the band called State Radio, and Heimbold and Braddigan both having independent careers.
On the 22nd of December, 2005, a benefit show was organized and took place at the Irving Plaza at New York. The show was named the Relief Project, and it was put together by Braddigon. Various artists gave performances at the show, along with State Radio and Heimbold. Some time later, the trio reunited for a short time, and performed a song as an encore. The song was titled Here We Go. Braddigon later announced that more Relief Projects were to follow, and the concerts would feature all three band members together. Some time later, the band got together for a concert at the Madison Square Park, sending the proceedings of the show to Zimbabwe as relief funds. The band finally announced their reunion on the 11th of July the same year, to the immense excitement of millions of fans all over the world.
