DOWNLOAD the "Always" performance on Craig Ferguson; "Mess of Me" is BACK on the Sirius "Alt Nation" Countdown

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


First off, don't forget to join in the first Footsoldiers campaign; we've already gotten Switchfoot 1000+ new fans on their Facebook page! Let's aim big and go for 5000 new fans by January 15th!

For more info on the new relaunch of Footsoldiers, go here.


We've got some tips from over at our friends LOBH and Alt Nation's Facebook discussion.

First, we've realize that "Mess of Me" has finally re-entered the Top 18 countdown of SiriusXM radio's "Alt Nation!" Remember this link? Well, its because of YOUR great efforts in requesting the song faithfully there that the song is back!

We hear from LOBH that "they count the requests during the week and play the 18 most requested songs several times over the weekend."

So, what we're going to need you to do is to continue to request "Mess of Me" on this link, and to also email in requests to or phone them in at 888 I AM 4 ALT!


Also, another HUGELY important thing we need you all to work on, is to sign up for and fill out ratethemusic's poll. Why this is important is that this is THE researching poll that radio stations across America look to when determining their playlists.

"Mess of Me" is up for the ALTERNATIVE poll. So when you're first signing up, be sure to indicate that the "alternative" format is your favorite musical style (even if you don't really like it. That's the only way we can poll for "Mess of Me").

Once you've filled out the regular poll, be sure to fill out the Switchfoot Special Music Survey as well. It will help influence future singles!

And look, Switchfoot's on the front page of the site!


You can watch an HD (1080P resolution no less) video of Switchfoot's Late Late Show performance below:

^Switchfoot's always been a band that looks spectacular in HD, don't you think??

DOWNLOAD this performance HERE in 1920x1080 HD glory! Be sure to check out new The Vault section, where you can find download links to other pieces of media we've collected over the years. :)


987 (Los Angeles) is tweeting about a Switchfoot live chat tomorrow, at around "4ish," according to what the Rock-A-Holics told me. Check it:

@switchfoot just confirmed to come by the studio tomorrow and do a LIVE EFFING CHAT with every last one of you. Deets coming soon.

Good stuff this week! @Switchfoot live video chat here at 98-7 this Thursday Jan 7 @ 4PM. Don't miss it!!

I'll tweet out the link to you later today for the @switchfoot chat.



You know the drill! "Mess of Me" is steadily increasing in spins once more! Keep the ball rolling, and make sure you take care of the objectives above as well. :)
