Jon Foreman Calls In to Positive Media for an interview; New stuff; "Mess of Me" charts news

Jon Foreman did an interview with Positive Media. You can go here to listen to it in its entirety.

We've embedded it here as well for you to listen:

Hear it first has a new video of the Switchfoot boys talking about the new Pre-order for "Hello Hurricane." Watch it here

Indievisionmusic.com posted their third Switchfoot review in as many weeks, prepping for the coming of "Hello Hurricane." This week, they reviewed "Learning to Breathe."

Learning to Breathe is the least consistent of all of Switchfoot’s work. This is the first and only time their choice of tracklisting wasn’t a strength and it feels like a transitional album. Perhaps them writing this so soon after New Way to be Human has something to do with that, it’s hard to say. All is not lost as some of their best songs are found here and they can’t be missed. This album closed an act in their career and though it wasn’t a strong finish, it showed promise for the future.
