Switchfoot on Rolling Stone Magazine

Thanks to LOBH for the tip.

Switchfoot apparently has a story on the latest issue of the Rolling Stone Magazine. Check out their table of contents:

In the Studio Danger Mouse, James Mercer's secret sessions yield trippy LP; Switchfoot's heavy, aggressive new CD.

^Awesome. I'm going to have to get my hands on that. Generally, Rolling Stone is one of the sorrier music publications nowadays, a far cry from their glory days, but there's no doubt this is excellent exposure for Switchfoot. Be sure to check it out!

Also, check out this spiffy new photo they have on their Rolling Stone profile:


So, remember that 987 radio hang out a few months back? Well, here is detailed video from that time.

Part 1 (you can hear "Needle and Haystack Life" playing in the background)

Part 2

Part 3

^And to think, I was going to be there. Ah well. :)


And now, for the Charts News for "Mess of Me" for today
