Thanks to the universal popularity of “Meant to Live” and “Dare You to Move,” Switchfoot has become a mainstream favorite while continuing to talk openly about its faith. The band's most recent album Vice Verses (September 2011) features their latest single "Afterlife" as well as the song "Restless," which was inspired during a rainstorm while touring through the United Kingdom. "The individual drops of water were relentless in their pursuit for the ocean," describes lead singer Jon Foreman with Scott and Kelli. "I began to think of my own life, and wow, do I have that type of tenacity, that type of yearning inside of me?"
Prior to Vice Verses, Switchfoot released their album Hello Hurricane featuring their powerful single, "Your Love is a Song." "We’re all a part of the symphony that God’s still writing in all of us,” Jon stated in an interview with K-LOVE.
Jon has been the frontman for Switchfoot for the last 13 years, and the band's make up has remained consistent during its tenure. Jon is joined by his brother, Tim (bass, backup vocals), as well as Jerome Fontamillas (guitars, keyboard, backing vocals), Chad Butler (drums, percussion) and Drew Shirley (guitar, backing vocals).
The group began producing some fantastic results with the band’s debut album, The Legend of Chin in 1997. Known for its energetic live shows and catchy pop music sensibilities, Switchfoot, whose name was inspired by a surfing term, already had a devout leading up to their breakout album The Beautiful Letdown in 2003.
The band continued to challenge themselves to write better and better songs that reflect faith, hope and love in an authentic way on its most recent albums Nothing is Sound, Oh! Gravity, Hello Hurricane and the aforementioned Vice Verses.
Switchfoot is currently on tour in various cities across the globe.
