Dispatch have unveiled the official music video for their single and title track from their forthcoming album, Circles Around The Sun.
The video was directed by Eric Heimbold and is dedicated to Larry Perry, a young disabled man who (legend has it) was sent unwillingly into space by NASA in the '60s. The video features footage of the band and Larry during various point of his life from childhood to adult as well as archived footage from NASA.

"Circles Around The Sun is the legend of our friend Larry Perry, who passed away this past year," guitarist-vocalist Chad Urmston told Rolling Stone.
Whether the legend of Perry's voyage into space is actually true is still debated amongst conspiracy theorists and his story has been told in How's Your News, an American television series and feature film that aired on MTV and captivated audiences. The video is a tribute to Larry. Find out more about Larry Perry in the video below.
