La Dispute

Grand Rapids, Michigan-based post-hardcore band La Dispute formed in 2004, made up of cousins Jordan Dreyer and Brad Vander Lugt (on vocals and drums, respectively) with friends Kevin Whittemore and Derek Sterenberg on guitars and Adam Kool on bass. The band played locally before releasing debut EP Vancouver in 2006. Shortly after, Sterenberg was replaced by his brother Chad. Adam Vass joined the band in 2007, replacing Kool on bass. Dreyer's lyrics and vocal style lean toward the spoken word style of his written poetry and prose, finding a space between stream-of-consciousness fluidity and imagery of everyday life. Following their debut EP, La Dispute released the albums Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair in 2008 and Wildlife in 2011. Between albums, the band issued a series of 7" releases entitled Hear, Here, which focused on more experimental material. Their third album, Rooms of the House, materialized in 2014. ~ Fred Thomas

How is mewithoutYou not listed as a similar artist? They're far more similar than any listed, or even Thursday, as suggested below.

I remember when you leaned in quick to kiss me and I swear not a single force on earth could stop the trembling of my--hand

I definitely think the similar artists should include "Thursday" because that's pretty much what this band is trying to be

Been listening to La Dispute for a little over a year now. This band holds a very special place in my heart, I'm so glad I found them. Their music has seriously saved me ��

The bio is wrong. Its "Here, Hear" not "Hear, Here"

I held your name inside my heart, but it got buried in my fear.
It tore the wiring of my brain; I did my best to keep it clear.
So, dear, no matter how we part, I hold you sweetly in my head.
And if I do not miss a part of you, a part of me is dead.
If I can't love you as a lover, I will love you as a friend.
And I will lay a bed before you; keep you safe until the end.
Well damn ;-; this song had to come on today at this time..

Sometimes I listen to their music until I can't breathe because of how relevant it is. Especially their song All Our Bruised Bodies and the Whole Heart Shrinks. And the ending to King Park, "Can I still get into heaven if I kill myself?"

She lost her kid, only seven, to cancer.
She answered with faith in her god and carried on,
While he was attacked by his son and was stabbed in his stomach and his back and his arms.
He showed me scars.
82 years old, told me, “I still have my daughter and my wife. And I still have
My life and my son.”

matter what he tries, the cracks are still clearly visible. That sounds like he got his heart broken by someone or something and the memories, or the cracks still haunt him even though he tries so very hard to forget everything.

I think the meaning behind A Broken Jar is very deep. I feel like it's about a man who is struggling to let get of something. The jar representing his heart or past maybe? Anyway, I feel as though the jar is a metaphor for his heart because of something that happened to him earlier on in life. The broken jar is the aftermath of what happened to his heart during that low point in his life. He even described how it can never be repaired even though he's tried so damn hard to fix it, but no

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

This band helped me a lot through a rough time; I was numb and could only find emotion while listening to their songs. The lyrics are beautiful and the instrumental s so beautifully thought out. This isn't just any music, it sounds like poetry the way more music should. Jordan is such a talented poet and the musicians are so gifted.

I saw this band two nights in a row. Pomona and LA. I love this band so much I even have the flower logo tattooed on my arm. Jeremy from Touché Amoré even sang along with Jordan! So much fun! This band saved me in time of need
