Everybody wants a story; this is ours. It's not about putting on a show or trying to sell something. Being Switchfoot is all about putting a different foot forward, risking to change or be changed. Switchfoot is a rock and roll family of sorts. Tim, Chad, Jerome, and I have seen pretty much everything over the past six years. We've done the "thirteen-hour drive" tours in the van, we've slept on the streets in London, we've gotten kicked out of the club in Hawaii, we've met our heroes and archenemies. We've beenSwitchFoot Christian Band at this ever since Tim graduated from High School: the best years of our lives playing the songs that we believe in. This is the beginning of our story.
