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.

Album recalled-Christian retailers only
MTV.com reports,
"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."

   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.
