Switchfoot Tour Bits

Northwest Florida Daily News posted a new story talking to Jon Foreman about Switchfoot and when they come to town March 31, 2008

“I don’t want to preach with words. The thing that speaks the loudest are your actions. On stage, I try to let the music speak for itself.”

The band’s current album is “Oh, Gravity” from 2006, and concertgoers can expect to hear “quite a bit of (it) because we love it and it’s near and dear to our hearts,” Foreman says.

Don’t count out older favorites, such as “Meant to Live” and “Dare You to Move,” or some new material. The band is working on a new album that Foreman hopes will be out this fall.

“You don’t want to press these things. You want to let them come in their time,” he says. How much new material they play is up to his brother.

“Tim’s in charge of that. It depends on what kind of mood he’s in,” Foreman says.

Although the band’s name is derived from a surfing term, they’ll be leaving their boards at home. Foreman noted that “Florida isn’t known for great waves,” but that isn’t the main reason.

“We carry so many guitars that it’s space-prohibitive,” he says, “until maybe someone invents inflatable surfboards.”

Whoa, so Tim's in charge of the new stuff? haha. Read the rest here


Here's some videos from the San Antonio show last night:
