In the aftermath of the new "Hello Hurricane" tracklisting we got from Switchfoot yesterday, we have a few items to report on.

First, Woodsawya from the official message boards created one of the best Switchfoot mash-ups I have ever heard. It's titled "This Is the Sound" in honor of the new song from "Hello Hurricane." NOTE: this is not to be confused with the actual song that is to be released later on.

This Is The Sound (unofficial)

What do you think of that? Pretty cool, huh?


And after the Twitter announcement yesterday, Switchfoot and Andy Barron were busy on there:
