- Wow, early soundcheck. Just finished, checked a new tune called needle and haystack life. Love it, maybe try it for the first time tonight?
^If anyone is going tonight, be sure to upload a video of the performance! hehe.
Here's a new interview/article excerpt about Switchfoot playing Kingsfest:
Even this summer, the band will play to different audiences. The guys have joined fellow KingsFest acts newsboys, Skillet (a rock band that has also enjoyed mainstream-chart success the past few years) and other Christian-oriented artists at several religion-based festivals.
Then, at the end of July, Switchfoot will embark on a monthlong tour with secular rockers Blue October ("Hate Me," "Into the Ocean").
Is it hard to co-exist in both worlds?
"It's unusual to be a band that does what we do," Foreman said. "We're a band of believers that doesn't feel the need to be pigeonholed and play only for one type of fan. Songs about life relate to all sorts of people. We don't pretend to have everything figured out -- we express hope, doubt, love, things we can all relate to.
"Whether it's a Christian fest or in front of a typical touring crowd, like with Blue October, the goal is honesty. When you wear your heart on your sleeves like we do in our songs, you can take that anywhere."
