According to Switchfoot.com, a second US tour may potentially be launched this coming March. Tim:
"This was easily one of our favorite tours ever. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, we're already looking forward
to the next tour." However, this piece of news is noted on the website to be of the "rumor" category, an even more..."rumor"-ful
un-fact is that the tour may be taking place in larger venues than this past fall's. Sign up for the Switchfoot Mailing List

Album recalled-Christian retailers only
"Here's some good news for any of the almost 57,000 Switchfoot fans
who picked up a copy of the band's newest disc, Nothing Is Sound, at a Christian retail outlet and then, after buying
the LP, wondered, "Gee, why can't I import these tracks to my iPod?" Turns out you threw money down on a defective album.
According to a spokesperson for EMI CMG, which distributes Switchfoot's albums to Christian retail only, a manufacturing defect
in the CDs' content-protection technology prevented fans from burning copies of the album or transferring the tracks to portable
MP3 devices. Hence, the company's pulled all of the copies that were out there, and is recalling all of those copies that
have been sold. Those who bought one of the defective copies (they've got the Sparro Records logo on them) and would like
a fresh copy of the disc can return to the point of purchase for a new one."
The band having just finished its 3 date Australia tour is currently on its 2 date tour
in Japan (for the first time). October 17th draws near, the kickoff date for the 21 date US tour of "Nothing Is Sound".
Also, MTV's TRL is launching a new segment called Click To Pick, according
to the Switchboard Streat Team, and Switchfoot's "Stars" is going to be featured next Tuesday, September 27th on MTV
@ 5pm... IF the video makes the cut & stays in the top ten. You can vote (here: http://www.mtv.com/onair/trl/vote/) to help "Stars" make it into the "Top Ten" video
playlist & thus into the TRL televised feature.
Switchfoot's series of live performances for "AOL Sessions" is now available for your viewing pleasure.

According to an article on VH1.com, Switchfoot's Nothing Is Sound made #3 on Billboard's
Top Ten Album sales in its first week. Says the article, "Rockin' beach bums Switchfoot brought
their game from the shores of San Diego to America's record stores this week, and walked away with the highest-charting release
of their career. Nothing Is Sound opens at #3 with more than 131,000 scans."
