Join Radults host Brenton as he has a chat with the very rad Jordan Dreyer, vocalist of Michigan post-hardcore superstars La Dispute, ahead of their 15 date Australian tour in September.
Over the past decade La Dispute has been responsible for some of the most uncompromising, experimental music and have carved a reputation as one of post-hardcore’s most singular voices. As the literal voice of La Dispute, and the man behind the bands unique and in-depth lyrical approach, Jordan plays a massive part in the soundscape, identity and performance of La Dispute.
A man responsible for penning lyrics that are inked into thousands of bodies worldwide, Jordan is refreshingly aware of the responsibility that being in a position of such visibility comes with and he and the rest of La Dispute work tirelessly with charitable organisations and show organizers to ensure that La Dispute shows are a safe environment, that also offer an opportunity to give back to the community that have given so much to them.
An absolute Radult, Jordan spends 20 mins of a rare day off discussing the bands rise, his personal artistic evolution, his writing style, the bands ethics, the importance of all ages shows, the creation of the bands new record Panorama, the inspiration behind their extended Australian tour and of course, his tips for being a Radult. It's an inspiring, albeit at times, spiderweb affected, chat with one of the most instantly recognizable voices in modern music.
