America, Location 12 serves as Disptach's first full-length album in five years and their most ambitious offering to date. Produced by John Dragonetti (The Submarines) with additional production by Mike Sawitzke (The Eels) and recorded at Panoramic House, an isolated studio set in the hills of Stinson Beach, CA, the release marks a true return to form for the band. The 11-song set was mastered by Dave Cooley (Animal Collective, Fitz & the Tantrums, M83). Chadwick Stokes explains, "We saw an opportunity to sing songs about issues that were of a real concern to us socially. Everything feels like it's coming to a head. If we can be a band in today's climate that brings these issues up in a non-traditional way, then that's really fulfilling for us."
