Switchfoot has some exciting news for us, from their latest email blast:

Big news.  So to commemorate our new record coming out soon, we will be doing a live broadcast from our studio.  We will be answering questions, talking about the new record, and even debuting a clip from our "Live at Spot X" in studio performances, which frankly, we think turned out pretty great.  It'll be for the song "Mess Of Me", which is our new single, but this video is totally different from the one we just put up on youtube.
We're pretty excited about it because we'll also be LIVE in our studio talking to you guys directly, which is how we prefer it. Good times.  The link you're going to want to remember is
Mark your calendars for THIS Tuesday, September 15 at 5:30 PM PST.  We will go live, and it will be awesome.  
Speaking of awesome, thank you SO much for your overwhelming response to the "Mess Of Me" clip we recently put up over on youtube.  We just surpassed 100k views, which is crazy.  If by some small chance you haven't seen it yet, cruise on over to this page and check it out.
Remember, Tuesday, 5:30 (west coast).  See you there.
Jon, Tim, Chad, Jerome, and Drew.
