KROQ in Los Angeles, one of the premiere Alternative stations in the country (along with Q101 in Chicago, who have also been very supportive of Switchfoot) has been giving "The Sound" premium coverage both on the radio airwaves and on their website.
Just the other day, we reported that KROQ did a new music feature on the band. As if that's not enough, all this past week right before the song airs on the radio, KROQ plays a clip of Tim Foreman saying:
"Hey what's happening, this is Tim Foreman from Switchfoot. You're listening to the world famous KROQ."
And just yesterday, popular KROQ DJ Stryker blogged "The Sound" as his #1 Video for the week, citing the positive response to the song so far:
The response to Switchfoot‘s new song “The Sound” has been great, which is why it takes over as my pick for the #1 Video.
The beginning of the video shows singer Jon Foreman holding up cardboard signs, revealing that the song was inspired by John M. Perkins, an American civil rights leader who has lived through adversity and has devoted his life to community development and racial reconciliation.

And, as icing on the cake, "The Sound" jumps from #19 to #5 most played on KROQ this week. Check out their post about it titled

A HUGE thank you to KROQ. This has been enormous for the single!
