Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over: Switchfoot have arrived in Australia for their select shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as part of their world tour. Last remaining tickets are on sale now.
Rarely does a rock band combine explosive guitars with an intense longing for meaning. With seven full length albums under their belts and their latest album Hello Hurricane, featured in USA Today’s Fall Pick for most awaited album. Switchfoot will return to Australia with a fighting spirit while still retaining their moniker of hope and optimism.
Renowned for their charity work around the globe, the multiplatinum guitar-rock band formed in 1996 around a mutual love of surfing and a passion for rock music. Switchfoot could not be more motivated to bring their new music from Hello Hurricane to their Australian fan base, “I think it is a landmark record for us,” says drummer Chad Butler. “It’s a new chapter in so many aspects of our lives, personally and professionally. I think we’re in the best possible place we’ve been in as a band.”
The past few years have been somewhat of a coming-of-age story for the San Diego quintet. Whilst the boys have been closely compared to Snow Patrol, or a ballsier Cheap Trick, they will play their brand of familiar anthemic rock tunes that acknowledge life’s storms amidst elements of hope.
Although Switchfoot have never ticked any of the standard genre boxes, the band find that diversity is their strength, operating at their peak during their infamous and energetic live shows. Expect a night of melodic crunch with densely layered sound featuring some electronic experimentation, often driven by heart-pumping guitar riffs, with a few softer ballads thrown in as well.
