Friends of the Foot Launches! Up In Arms Tour Rages on!


amigos,

We are extremely grateful for the community of friends that we've met along the way through these songs. Many of you have played a vital role in inspiring us to do what we do. We've always looked for ways to connect beyond just the songs and the shows. This is why we began putting out a free video podcast (now 32 episodes and counting!), the daily foot photo journal, the switchfeed news feed on our homepage, the live studio camera, and our all-new message-board community. For us, music has always been about communication, and keeping the dialogue going long after the guitars have stopped ringing. In addition to all of this, many of you have been requesting, for lack of a better term, a fan club of sorts (maybe a "fam" club?), and after much planning and brainstorming, we are extremely excited to bring to you "Friends of the Foot."

What this IS:
A way for us to provide something extra for those that want it -- a way to say hi at the shows without having to wait outside the venue; a way to see what happens on tour and in the studio on a larger scale, with updates on an almost-daily basis; access to rare out-takes, and other downloads that a casual listener may not appreciate. This is simply a way to do more, without taking anything away from what we already do.

What this IS NOT:
an elite club or clique. This is not about who has and has not. This is not about who is a real fan and who isn't. This is not a dividing line in the middle of our great community. This is simply a way for us to provide a higher level of content and dialogue for those who want it.

We are extremely grateful for everyone that listens to these songs, everyone who sings along, and everyone who believes that these tunes could be part of a story much larger than ourselves. Whether you are a friend of the foot, or simply a friend, we are honored to have you as part of our family.

Sincerely,

jon, tim, chad, jerome, and drew
