"Mess of Me" no. 8 on FUSE TV Alternative Countdown; Chicago Show recap

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


Hey peeps. Check out these tweets (thanks LOBH):

From @sonopod:
Mastered a live version of #Switchfoot performing "Red Eyes" to benefit #Haiti relief. It's an important time to continue the support.

From @DLO76:
Editing an interview of @jonathanforeman of @switchfoot. He singing a couple songs too. It's like my own private concert. He got talent!



Speaking of Landofbrokenhearts, here is an interview they did with Paper Tongues, the band that has been opening for Switchfoot throughout their more recent Hello Hurricane touring stops. Excerpt:

LOBH: He is. He's a machine. Along those lines, here's a question from MJ: "What are the Switchfoot guys like behind the scenes, personality wise?"

Devin: Extremely genuine. They're always ready for a good conversation. Drew is definitely the sarcastic joker of the band. Jon, Tim and Chad are all huge fans of all things San Diego. We were watching the Chargers game and they were going nuts. They really seem to like surfing too. Mostly though, they're just the kind of guys you would actually want to get to know. Not just hang out with but really get to know.

LOBH: What were the reactions when the chargers lost?

Devin: Defeat. Pure defeat. They were very disappointed. But, they went on to play a great show anyway.

Plenty more where that came from!


On to tourrr! Switchfoot played Chicago last night, and from the looks of things, they rocked the house, as usual!


"Meant to Live"

"This Is Your Life"

Switchfoot also played an aftershow/afterparty thing, hosted by Q101, the radio station over there. And here is a video of the guys playing their cover of "Lucky Man" by The Verve


And, to take a step back in time, here are some illustrious videos from the Pageant in St. Louis, a couple nights ago now.

FUSE TV No. 1 Countdown

As you all know, "Mess of Me" debuted at No. 2 on the FUSE TV No. 1 Countdown Viewer's Choice yesterday! GREAT GREAT JOB everyone! Take some time to continue to vote for it this week. We can totally get it to No. 1 next week!

On a side note of sorts, FUSE TV does several different genre countdowns throughout the week, and this morning, they played the Alternative countdown, and "Mess of Me" came in at No. 8! (based on several Billboard charts, I think). But we can still control what happens on Viewer's Choice, which I think, is the more lucrative prize. SO....

VOTE FOR IT NOW! You should set it as the homepage, so every time you open the browser, you'd be "forced" to vote. ;)

Comment below, and let us know what you do to make your voting experience a little less dull.
