Where The Light Shines Through marks an important milestone in SWITCHFOOT’s hugely successful career. The band’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.
