Switchfoot has once more taken to Twitter to update us on the making of "Vice Verses." Photographer Andy Barron posted this picture, saying

Discuss: What do you think of the new record? Are you excited, and what direction do you think the band should take?

In my opinion, I think it's time for them to make the record of their lives! Double album? Bring it on. The band should take risks and kick some serious behind. They are fully capable!

The band also made public the slew of Canadian tour dates they have coming up in April. Check it out on Switchfoot.com.

^Hopefully the band pulls out some new tunes for you Canadian folks!

And in case you missed it in yesterday's quick post, Switchfoot's Japanese adventures have been documented in a new SwitchfootTV/Podcast episode. It was uploaded on a random person's YouTube channel yesterday, but got removed. It is now live on the band's official account.

I'm not really familiar with double albums. Obviously, a double album would be like two CDs in one. But how do double albums do in sales and such? Seems like a lot of music.

Well, the most recent one I can think of is Red Hot Chilli Peppers' "Stadium Arcadium." It sold 7 million records worldwide.

Switchfoot just needs to come up with their new masterpiece, get decent backing from Atlantic, and we could be seeing a hit record! :)

Is that idealism or realism? Hard for me to tell.


Oh, by the way, here's a selfish question: What would you say to allowing me to sometime write an opinion piece about Switchfoot for We're Awakening? It's kind of something I've dreamed about for a while, actually. It would be like some guest blogger doing a FootColumn or something of the sort. I've been brainstorming ideas. You could post it as an excerpt and link to my blog or allow me to post the whole thing here myself. You could work with me to make sure I wouldn't embarass myself too badly. :)

Just a thought.

probably a little of both.

yeah, shoot me an email with ideas, and we'll talk.
