Switchfoot are releasing their new album WHEN THE LIGHT SHINES THROUGH on July 8th 2016
Casper had a great chat with frontman Jon Foreman regarding the journey it took them on.
Multi-platinum selling alternative rock band SWITCHFOOT announced their upcoming album, Where The Light Shines Through, be released on July 8th, 2016 via Vanguard Records/ Caroline Australia. Where The Light Shines Through, the band’s tenth album and the first since 2014’s highly acclaimed Fading West, was produced in collaboration with John Fields, who helmed the multi-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown. The band have also shared the premiere of their new video for single “Float” via VEVO. The video was shot March 28, 2016 in Manila and features the band performing in the streets with a local crowd growing larger and larger as the song progresses.
CNN Philippines covered the shoot, which included the band having their lunch break with several kids of Young Focus Philippines, a non-government organization that works with underprivileged people. For more info, visit http://www.youngfocus.org.
This album marks an important milestone in the band’s hugely successful career. SWITCHFOOT’s journey began in 1997 with the first of three indie releases before signing with a major label in 2003. Since then, the San Diego, CA based outfit have sold 5.7 million copies worldwide of their nine studio albums (including 2003’s The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s GRAMMY Award-winning, Hello Hurricane). Where The Light Shines Through marks the band’s return to the indie world and showcases that, two decades from their start, they’re able to have a career filled with longevity, revitalization and rejuvenation.
The album is currently available for pre-order with two new songs “Float” and “Live It Well” both of which are offered via instant grat download.
