We're already WELL on our way. This has got more steam behind it than the other "Mess of Me" video because we have 30,000 + new subscribers on this channel. Keep up the great work and see you on the video comments section!

We may be single-handedly making music history folks... if "Hello Hurricane" explodes, this effort here, will have a large hand in that! Exciting, if you ask me.


The GRAMMY Museum apparently had Switchfoot in yesterday as special guests! This info via their Twitter:

- Switchfoot is here today for our Backstage Pass program, speaking to students about developing a career in music.

- The band's manager, publicist, and record company reps are also here to share their experiences. Right now, a performance: "Meant to Live."

- Everyone on today's panel is working on Swtchfoot's new album "Hello Hurricane."

- The record's producer, Mike Elizondo, is here too. "I realized pretty quickly that I had to be a part of this record."


There's a new video of an interview with Jon Foreman, about social justice. Check it out:
