"Mess of Me" hits Top 40 on the Alternative charts!

UPDATE (9:26 PM PST): Moved up a spot overnight. "Mess of Me" is now No. 39 on the Alternative charts.

GREAT NEWS. Over the weekend, "Mess of Me" cracked the Top 40 of the Alternative rock charts.

^That is some excellent news. This, following the fact that a clip of "Free" made its way onto a nationally televised broadcast of the ALCS Game 1 baseball playoffs. Atlantic Records is giving it their all, and it's beginning to show with the exposure and success Switchfoot is finally receiving, and well-deservedly so. If you haven't seen the "Free" clip, be sure to check it out HERE.


UPDATE (9:42 AM PST): has it up on their mp3 store. But it's going up for sale on October 27. Hmm...

So apparently, there is going to be a digital single release of "The Sound (John M. Perkins Blues)" –– at least on Walmart's online music store. Check it out here. Thanks LOBH for the tip.

Below is the the single art:

I'm wondering if this is similar to what the band did in the past, releasing "Dirty Second Hands" as a non-radio single. We'll see.



Exercise those fingers, and keep voting for Switchfoot! We need to keep this ball rolling.

- Go vote for "Mess of Me" on RadioU's Top Ten Most Wanted here. It is currently at 39.9%, still the majority of the votes. But we can't let that momentum slide. Make sure you vote every day.

- KROQ (Los Angeles) is one of the most influential rock stations in the country. When they add a song, several other stations across the country take notice and follow suit. We need to get "Mess of Me" on there, in order to get this single off the ground. Go HERE to request it! Keep it up friends! Don't slow down, WE NEED THIS.


Go here to see a list of stations already playing "Mess of Me" and phone numbers to call in and request the song with!

We'll post more voting opportunities as they come up, so keep checking back every day.
