UPDATE: SWITCHFOOT Announces New Music, Feature Film, and Unique Tour – SWITCHFOOT! New Album, Fading West, to Be Released This Fall; New Film to Serve as Opening Act on Fall Tour

Posted: June 25, 2013 in Uncategorized

Grammy-award winning rock band Switchfoot announced the release of their 9th studio album as well as the details behind their new feature film, both titled Fading West. The new album will be released this fall on Atlantic Records/Word, while the 80-minute film will serve as the opening act on the band’s storyteller-style fall tour beginning September 20th in St. Louis, MO. The 43-city tour will also make stops in major markets including Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles and Seattle. A full tour routing is detailed below. Westtakes the classic Switchfoot style and infuses a vast array of cultural influences collected during their 2012 World Tour that can be heard within the rhythms and sonic tapestry of the new record. This collection of songs is bigger and more powerful than anything the band has released to date. Rooted in the same hopeful message and quick turn of phrase that fans have come to love is a renewed expression of change, hope and discovering your place in the world. While not a direct soundtrack, tracks from the new album can be heard throughout the film. Directed by Matt Katsolis and filmed during Switchfoot’s 2012 World Tour, the film charts the creation of the San Diego-based fivesome’s upcoming ninth album in its earliest and most unpredictable stages. Part rock documentary, part surf film, and part travelogue, Fading Westoffers rare glimpses of the longtime surfers on their boards and in the waves, captures the frenetic energy of their live shows, and in the end portrays a journey both epic and intimate.

The 9th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert returns to North County San Diego July 12-13, 2013. The festivities kick off July 12 with the Switchfoot Bro-Am Auction Night Soiree at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, followed by the daylong event at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on July 13, featuring a variety of activities including a charity surf contest, a nerf surf jousting exposition between surf contest heats, The Rob Machado Bro Junior, and a live concert with Switchfoot on the beach along with special guests Gentleman Hall, Pacific Air, 78 Violet, and Gungor. The evening will round out with the annual Belly Up Tavern After-Party hosted by Switchfoot and featuring performances by Fiction Family, Alekesam, and Makua Rothman. New this year, the Bro-Am is working with Action Sports Productions to add a live Web cast, which will stream the surf contest/concert at Moonlight Beach, allowing supporters from around the US and world to tune in and catch the Bro-Am a ction live. Information about the Web cast will be posted on the Bro-Am Web site: http://www.switchfoot.com/bro-am.
