Switchfoot TV Episode 43; "Hello Hurricane" in New Zealand; Footsoldiers Missions tallies so far

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


First off, check out the new Switchfoot TV Episode! We're at No. 43 now, and it just keeps getting better.


Also, as we reported on Twitter yesterday, there is some great news out of New Zealand. "Hello Hurricane" just debuted at No. 13 on the RIANZ Top Albums chart over there. Looks like Parachute really had an effect on album sales. Rock on New Zealand friends!

^The rest of the world is starting to find the Hurricane!



Be sure to check out the Lala Mission Blog for the latest campaign updates. Here's what we've been able to accomplish so far in the three and a half days since the campaign started!

"Mess of Me"

No. 1 Alternative song
No. 5 Song overall


No. 8 Alternative band

^That is just amazing guys! Let's keep going. For a list of objectives, be sure to check in with the Footsoldiers.

TIP: Open a few windows and have the song playing on all three of those windows. It should aid in speeding up the process!


FUSE No. 1 Countdown

Keep voting for "Mess of Me" on FUSE! If you haven't, I suggest you do so as many times as you can!


TIP: If you use Firefox, you can merely press "enter" and your vote will be logged (no need to scroll)


SIRIUS Alt Nation Top 18 Countdown

Be sure to keep requesting "Mess of Me" here as well. Let's get back onto the countdown.

If we all can fill both of these countdowns out at least 5 times a day each, we'll do damage!



"Mess of Me" cracked the top 15 of Mediabase's Alternative chart and No. 16 on Billboard's Alternative songs yesterday. Keep requesting; We're so getting into the Top 10 this month.

Our friend Chris wrote in with this in-depth analysis. Check it out!

Meant To Live was at #11 on Alt-Rock in its 16th week on that chart (ending up at #5)

Dare You To Move was #13 in 16th week on that chart (ending up at #9)

This Is Your Life made it 7 weeks peaking at #30.

Stars made it 12 weeks peaking at #16.

MESS OF ME is in its 16th week and has moved up to #16! Only 3 places below DYTM and only 5 places lower than M2L were at this point! It has already outdone Stars, This Is Your Life, and Oh! Gravity! Keep requesting, it is working!

^You heard the man! Thanks buddy.



Please also go here to see a list of stations already playing "Mess of Me" and phone numbers to call in and request the song with! Your calls are INSANELY IMPORTANT!

HERE are some request links you can do online if you can't reach a phone. Please be SURE to fill out a few of these links every day, especially the ones at or near your area! It is our collective efforts that will ensure the success of this and any future Switchfoot single.
