Switchfoot Joins the “Looking For America Tour” with Relient K

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-winning band Switchfoot is currently on the road promoting their brand new album Where The Light Shines Through.  Co-headlining “Looking For America Tour” is alternative rock band Relient K.  Tickets are on sale now at www.switchfoot.com.

Switchfoot was formed in San Diego in 1996, and is comprised of Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keyboard, guitar), Drew Shirley (guitar), and Chad Butler (drums). The band has sold over 5.7 million copies worldwide of their first nine studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s Grammy Award-winning Hello Hurricane), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles, and performed sold-out world tours with over 4 million concert tickets worldwide.  In 2010 Switchfoot performed on stage at the Boy Scout Jamboree celebrating the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary.

Switchfoot and Vanguard Records released their latest album, Where The Light Shines Through, on July 8th, 2016. The record has the honor of being the band’s tenth album and the first since 2014’s highly acclaimed Fading West. The album was self-produced in collaboration with John Fields, who helmed the multi-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown.

Beyond their musical achievements, Switchfoot has also been active in a variety of philanthropic efforts. This includes raising over a million dollars to aid children in their community through the band’s own BRO-AM Foundation by providing services to underprivileged and disadvantaged youth. The money is raised through a long-running annual benefit surf contest and concert that’s held every summer in Encinitas, CA. One dollar of every ticket sold will be donated to Switchfoot’s BRO-AM Foundation. The band also maintains a deep commitment to a variety of additional humanitarian causes, lending their support to organizations such as CURE International, DATA, the ONE Campaign, Habitat for Humanity, Invisible Children and To Write Love on Her Arms.
