With its play on words, Vice Verses, the title of Switchfoot's new album, coherently suggests the album's theme: everything has two sides. "Every blessing comes with a set of curses," singer-guitarist Jon Foreman sings on the title track, all the while wondering if "there's a meaning to it all." That theme runs through the album's 12 songs and is even reflected in the album's black and white cover.
In keeping true to its San Diego roots, the band annually hosts Switchfoot Bro-Am, an event that benefits the San Diego-based StandUp for Kids, a national non-profit helping homeless and at risk youth. The Bro-Am includes a surf contest, charity auction, and festival concert. The event has raised over $500,000 to date, and this year's event attracted 10,000 people.
"We love music and playing together," he says. We thrive on the communal aspect of song and the stories that are invested within. We've been through a lot together… Incredible, wonderful moments and also really destructive, painful moments. You can feel that weight in some of the songs. It's an incredible dream-come-true to say, 'It's time for a new Switchfoot record' and to be able to go into the studio and make the album exactly how we want to make it."
