Radio Release of "Stars"
According to an advertisement on AllAccess.com, the full studio version of "Stars" is to be released
to radio stations circulation on Tuesday June 28th.
The full MP3 version of Stars was made available through the advertisement on this site, a radio industry
service database, which was then pirated and leaked/linked onto the Sony Official Boards, where
you may now listen/download it (though a bit illegally).
Switchfoot Database will continue to host the combined and mixed clips of Stars as released by the band,
but will not be hosting the full version of "Stars", at least until its official release date, out of respect for the band.
I implore you to pester your local radio stations and enjoy the song from the ad or boards if you'd like, but stay within
the moral and legal limits of musical promotion. Thank you.
On a cheerful note, "Stars" - coming to a radio
station near you!
Go see the advertisment yourself! It is located at the bottom of the "alternative"
page, which can be accessed using the sidebar on the left. >> http://www.allaccess.com/
Official Date of Release
According to Switchfoot.com, the official date of the release of Nothing Is Sound is September 13th...and
with that, Nothing Is Sound is available for preorder! Everywhere.
The two released clips of "stars" as posted on the SF myspace and official website have been mixed
(by various fans-hehe!)...and in that form can now be found on the Media page!
Thanks to you folks who did that, you rock my socks!
Clip of 'Stars' Posted!
Go listen to a clip of a new song off Nothing Is Sound!!!
Nothing Is Sound nearing completion
According to Jon's post on the official Switchfoot myspace page, Nothing Is Sound's final track was
recorded and mixed last week. And the album was 'mastered' on this past Friday...
"Last week the final track of the record, ("we are one tonight" a fairly new song that we tracked
in the 11th hour) was mixed and on friday our record was mastered- the last step in the process."
Jon also reported that Switchfoot will be releasing the song "stars" soon, though said nothing
about "happy is a yuppie word", which is believed to have a video already made (or in the process of being made). Its hard
to say what the plans are for either of these songs at the moment, and the myspace page is definitely the place
to watch for any news.

Nothing Is Sound Album Cover Released
Earlier this week, a fantastic discovery was made!
YAY! This is the official album cover of Nothing Is Sound, which is still
due out in hopefully early August. According to Emily (xblueandyell0wx on LJ) the new video, shot underwater (!) a couple
weeks ago is for Happy Is A Yuppie Word, which is rumored to perhaps be coming out as a single in July, but that's all speculation!
There are a few more little tidbits of info on these subjects available on the FootSoldiers ("Street Team") member page on

News of New Album at the
Gospel Music Awards-Monday, April
"The next guest was a very exciting surprise: Jon Foreman of Switchfoot walked in and sat down
on stage for an interview with EMI CMG Label Group Director of Artist Development Nick Barré to talk about the new Switchfoot
album! The rest of the band was still in California at that moment in the studio working on the next album. Jokingly Jon said
that he had drawn the short straw to get to fly out to Nashville for this interview. After the interview ended, he was to
fly back out immediately to California. (Thus Switchfoot's absence the next night at the Dove Awards!) During the interview,
they played two tracks from the new album which is set to be titled Nothing is Sound. The first track was called "Hit the
Lights, Look at the Stars." Jon's favorite song from the new album, "Shadow Proves the Sunshine," was played next. For those
who are wondering what the new album will sound like, I can tell you that both of these songs maintained the "Switchfoot Sound"
of The Beautiful Letdown, so Nothing is Sound should prove to be just as popular."

SCRATCH THAT! I just this second got the latest Switchfoot Newsletter, confirming MANY circulating
rumors. Here it is:
"Well friends, after months of recording, we've finally given birth
to our newest album, "NOTHING IS SOUND." This album was recorded all over the world while on tour in places as far as Germany,
Africa, and Australia, and also places as close as our backyard. We are in the final stages of mixing what we all feel to
be our strongest record yet... which is scheduled to release... (dramatic pause) in early August. We feel like proud parents,
and we can't wait to introduce you to our newest creation. I'm not sure if it's a boy or a girl, but it definitely has teeth."
