The Sultans of San Diego Rock Have Done It Again!

From the moment I heard Switchfoot live at The Roxy Theater in my hometown of Bremerton, WA...I knew I was hearing a band that would define our generation. Jon and the guys write songs that speak the heart of a generation searching to be a part of something bigger, searching for meaning, for justice, love, hope, truth. Their lyrics are universal in that they deal with human struggle, regardless of religion, race, politics, or sex. "Dirty Second Hands" is no different. This "sneak-peek" from their new album is sure to satisfy any Switchfoot fan for the moment. A little harder than their normal fare, this song puts an edge on the band's San Diego "surf rock". However, that's one of the best things about Switchfoot, they are constantly redefining themselves lyrically and musically, yet continue to stay true to their Rock. If this is any indication of the rest of the new album, we are in for a spectacular feast for the ears. Who's hungry?

Great song, great band!

This is a new step for Switchfoot. I dare you to try and figure out what genre they fall into now. It's like they're making a whole new sound. We'll see what the new CD is like, but as for this song, they're definitely experimenting with new sounds. But don't get me wrong--they're still the same ol' Switchfoot we know and love, I think they're just digging deeper than they have before. I think this is a great single, but I'll let you be the judge.

Switchfoot evolution

This is obviously the next step in the evolution of Switchfoot's sound. Different than anything I've ever heard from them, a lot edgier. Switchfoot fans will enjoy it because it's Switchfoot and their fans are devoted like that. Newcomers, definitely an original sound and not more of that prepackaged, neo-punk stuff that everybody else is putting out.

After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003's The Beautiful Letdown, a double-platinum album that straddled the line between sacred and secular rock music. Years before Switchfoot's commercial breakthrough, though, the group struggled to make a dent in the San Diego area, where singer/guitarist Jonathan Foreman, bassist Tim Foreman, and drummer Chad Butler began playing together in 1996. The lineup logged several shows under its original...
