Fiction Family back on the road! Switchfoot to "dream up" their new website

Well folks, in the time we have been "away" (on my part, due to illness), Fiction Family has been back on the road playing shows that will lead up to their prime slot at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, which takes place tomorrow.

We have a fan-blog report about the show last night at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC. Here's an excerpt:

I really love the Fiction Family album, and they’re even better live. The venue is small, which lent itself to a more informal mood and allowed Jon Foreman to talk to individual people in the crowd–not me, but some people were lucky. The music was INCREDIBLE, of course. And Fiction Family covered Jon Foreman’s “Resurrect Me,” which they have recorded, but Jon also sang two other of his solo songs–”Behind Your Eyes” and “Your Love is Strong,” which is my favorite song from the seasonal EPs. Admittedly, there were tears in my eyes. So wonderful.

Read the rest HERE. :)


Well, since Jon Foreman has been out with his other band, the rest of Switchfoot have been having some fun back here at home. They've been tweeting it up on the Twitter of their many doings and goings-ons. Going-ons? Goings-on? help. hehe

Looks like the boys are having fun. And by all accounts from Mr. Andy Barron, it looks like the new Switchfoot record's artwork is being finalized. We are definitely getting amped up, and it might not be long until we start hearing material from "Hello Hurricane." Plus, the possibility of a new website is definitely something that gets us all stoked as well.

Switchfoot, we can't wait! :D

Peace out everyone. Have a great weekend.
