Everybody wants a story; this is ours. It’s not about putting on a show or trying to sell something. Being Switchfoot is all about putting a different foot forward, risking to change or be changed. Switchfoot is a rock and roll family of sorts. Tim, Chad, Jerome and I have seen pretty much everything over the past six years. We’ve done the “thirteen-hour drive” tours in the van, we’ve slept on the streets in London, we’ve gotten kicked out of the club in Hawaii, we’ve met our heroes and archenemies. We’ve been at this ever since Tim graduated from High School: the best years of our lives playing the songs that we believe in. This is the beginning of our story. From the start we wanted to be genuine- the same people on and off stage. However, wearing your heart on your sleeve in front of an audience is a huge risk- strings break, the power goes out, fingers and memories malfunction. I used to hate playing live music for this reason. I felt like I could express what I wanted to say better on my four-track than I could on stage. When Tim, Chad, Jerome and I joined forces I finally felt like we were saying something new as a live band, something that needed to be said. I began to love the floating moments when anything can happen next. Somewhere back there the risk of playing live became a fuel to burn and our honesty became our strength.
