SWITCHFOOT Announce New Studio Album: Where The Light Shines Through To Be Released July 8th, 2016 Via Vanguard Records In Partnership With Capitol Christian Music Group

12th Annual BRO-AM Scheduled for July 9, 2016 at Moonlight Beach, Encinitas, CA

May 13, 2016 – Multi-platinum selling alternative rock band SWITCHFOOT announced their upcoming album, Where The Light Shines Through, which will be released on July 8th, 2016 via Vanguard Records in partnership with Capitol Christian Music Group. Where The Light Shines Through, the band’s tenth album and the first since 2014’s highly acclaimed Fading West, was produced in collaboration with John Fields, who helmed the multi-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown.

This album marks an important milestone in the band’s hugely successful career. SWITCHFOOT’s journey began in 1997 with the first of three indie releases before signing with a major label in 2003. Since then, the San Diego, CA based outfit have sold 5.7 million copies worldwide of their nine studio albums (including 2003’s The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s GRAMMY Award-winning, Hello Hurricane). Where The Light Shines Through marks the band’s return to the indie world and showcases that, two decades from their start, they’re able to have a career filled with longevity, revitalization and rejuvenation.

The album is currently available for pre-order on the band’s website along with streaming track premieres of two new songs “Float” and “Live It Well” (both of which are offered via instant grat download when pre-ordering the album). Purchase Where the Light Shines Through via iTunes and via Amazon Music.

SWITCHFOOT’S 12th annual BRO-AM has been announced for July 9th, 2016 in Encinitas, CA. The annual celebration draws over 15,000 people for a surf contest and free concert on the beach to benefit local youth charities. “The BRO-AM has been our favorite day of the year for over a decade,” says SWITCHFOOT’S Jon Foreman. “To see our community come together is an incredible experience. What better way to celebrate our 10th record than to play the new songs on the beach in our hometown to help kids in need.”

SWITCHFOOT will tour through 2016 with dates being announced soon.

SWITCHFOOT consists of Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keys, guitar), Drew Shirley (guitar) and Chad Butler (drums).
