Toronto's National Post interviewed Chad Butler ahead of their show tonight:

Q: Has being independent changed Switchfoot's musical direction at all?
A: We worked for many months without a producer, or even an engineer sometimes. It was just us experimenting in the studio. There's a lot of happy accidents when you don't know what you're doing (laughs). We were trying to find new ways of capturing the live energy we have on stage.
We did bring in Mike Elizondo in the last few months of recording. That was incredible to have someone like that to bring a new synergy. He comes from a completely different background - he came from producing and writing with Dr. Dre and Eminem. And more recently with Rilo Kiley and Fiona Apple. Recording with him was a challenge for us - his approach was really refreshing. Someone who's got such a rhythmic sensibility.
I think it's going to be really surprising when people hear this.

Q: What is the set-list going to look like at the NXNE show?
A: We have been bringing out a couple Legend of Chin [the band's first record] songs in the last year from time to time. I think for us right now the urgency and excitement is to start playing a few of these new songs from Hello Hurricane. We will be debuting some - I think Toronto will be one of the very first show we get to play these new songs at. Now that the record is finished - it'll be fresh for us.
