"Mess of Me" on the brink of Top 20 at Modern Rock!

For up to date (most of the time) news and original opinions before they hit the update, follow us on Twitter!


Hey friends. So far, a slow news Monday, but it must be noted that "Mess of Me" catapulted a modest two spots over the weekend to reach No. 21 on the Alternative charts! This is excellent news... it means we are on the brink of cracking the Top 20 on Modern Rock! WOO!

However, the spins are slowing down (as is expected over the holiday), but here is something we need to remember. Sometimes, a song will fall off so sharply over Thanksgiving or Christmas/New Year, that radio will decide not to pick it up once the holidays are over.

Thanks to YOUR efforts, "Mess of Me" survived the Thanksgiving hump and is where it's at today: about to crack the Top 20. But we need to keep going... "Mess of Me" survived Christmas while still gaining spins. Now we need to get over the New Year (this Friday), while maintaining progression on the charts.

2010 will bring "reinforcements," so to speak in the Craig Ferguson appearance on January 4th (mark your calendars) and the Rose Bowl pre-game performance on the 7th (we'll keep you posted on whether that is televised or not). Those should give Switchfoot the kind of publicity boost that will help radio along, but until then, it's all us holding the fort!

In other words, keep requesting "Mess of Me" at your local station. It's our efforts alone that are keeping this thing going, and it will be our efforts that will ensure this becomes Switchfoot's biggest rock song since "Stars." WE'VE GOT THIS!
