Switchfoot Eye February For Major Label Debut

San Diego rock band Switchfoot are gearing up for an extensive US tour in support of their major label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which drops February 25 via Columbia/Red Ink. The trek is slated to kick off on February 21 in Indio, CA, and run well into the middle of the year. However, if you're in San Diego, Switchfoot will warm up with a home town show at The Casbah on February 5. The band is no stranger to the road, as they have mounted multiple extremely successful US tours over the past few years in support of its three independently released albums and collectively sold an astounding 400,000 copies of those releases.

Switchfoot's first single from The Beautiful Letdown, "Meant To Live," impacted specialty radio last weekend and debuted in the top 10 on FMQB's Specialty Spins Weekly Singles chart and the top 20 on R&R's Alternative Specialty chart. Look to hear more from these guys as their album nears release.
