Hello friends. As we are nearing the weekend, I'd like to thank you all for sticking with this blog through all these times. I know the updates have been a bit slow, and I apologize for that - it's just the first week of school, so there are books to be bought, classes to be found, old friends to catch up with, a cafeteria food to be consumed. But don't think I'm gone; once things are more settled, we'll be back to normal for the most part.
Anyways, today's update is a typing up of loose end Switchfoot news gathered over the last few days. Hope you find this news digest enjoyable!
Today, Switchfoot just posted a link to a new surf movie called High Water on their Facebook page. Sounds like they have either submitted new music to this movie or have donated music to other artists; not sure which it is. Either way, if you would like to hear this clip, head over to highwatermovie.com and click the Trailer button.
First item today, we've got an interview with VenusZine, conducted with Jon Foreman and Chad Butler at Lollapalooza.
Here's the video:

KROQ gave another feature to Switchfoot, this time advertising the Greek Theatre show this weekend. Check it out here.
It’s safe to say that Switchfoot is one of the top KROQ bands at the moment. The heavy guitar-filled single “The Sound” has been getting tons of calls on the request lines, plus it’s won #1 Requested Song and #1 Video honors.
Want to hear the sound of “The Sound” live? You may be in luck. Switchfoot is coming to L.A.’s Greek Theatre this Sunday as the opening band for the Goo Goo Dolls. And, luckily, tickets are still available.
^Anyone else can't help but picture Russell Brand's cavorting movie "Get Him to the Greek" when you hear the words "greek" and "theatre?" Me neither.
Here's another video from Red Rocks.
