"Mess of Me" starting to spread; Switchfoot debuts "Free" live

Great work yesterday on the video, friends! We surpassed 4000 comments last night, which is INCREDIBLE for a first-day video. To put it all into perspective, the video for "Awakening" has 5,991 comments – TOTAL.

Also, just right now, I found that we have reached the goals we set out for the first day of this here video:

- 2000 comments (CHECK)
- 500 ratings (CHECK)
- 25,000 views (CHECK!)

~high fives all around~ Switchfoot would be proud of you all!

Over the last two days, we've amassed quite the array of honors. Always a good sign we're getting close to going viral:

Also, it can now be seen on the second page if you click on the "Videos" tab at the top of!

^That is some major damage done! We've accomplished so much, and the video has amassed over 4000 comments and over 1000 ratings. Today is the last day our video will be eligible for the "Today" honors, but we can go for "Monthly" honors!

Also, part of getting a video to go viral is to spread the song like a virus ourselves! Keep sharing it with your friends, tweeting about it, posting it on Facebook and Myspace, and just saturating your surroundings with the sounds of Switchfoot! We can do it! We need to give the song as much momentum as we can before it gets sent to radio (sometime this week).


MissAnnaBee was at the 99x Radio Event that Switchfoot apparently played yesterday in Atlanta. Look what she got on tape! "Free," live and acoustic for the first time ever. ENJOY:

^thanks so much MissAnnaBee!


Paste Magazine has a new feature on Switchfoot's new album, "Hello Hurricane." Much of it is what we already have known and heard, but they have a schnazzy new press photo:
