Sitting Down With Jon Foreman

Posted by - 01:38 PM on 07/02/11
In a new interview, Jon Foreman of Switchfoot confirms a fall tour with Anberlin and discusses their upcoming album Vice Verses.
InterviewI wrote a piece awhile back on the Huffington Post about Dark Horses and underdogs and I started thinking about it and for me the true underdogs are the people who didnít chose their situation, but are rising above it. For me that song the Dark Horses is all about the homeless kids back in San Diego, specifically the ones who are being helped out by Stand Up For Kids. Itís always nice when you have a song you are passionate about singing night after night that has a deeper meaning than simply another verse and another chorus.

I can't wait for this tour. Switchfoot co-headlining with Relient K a few years back was incredible, and I assume they'll co-headline with Anberlin. Plus, Switchfoot is just amazing live.

I wish I would have seen Anberlin more before they turned into a radio rock band who goes on shitty tours.

Weren't their last two tours before 30STM with Circa Survive and Civil Twilight/Crash Kings?

I think you proved my point for me.

I saw Anberlin and Reeve Oliver open for Yellowcard in 2006.

Switchfoot puts on a great live show, and they're all super great people. Didn't love their last album but I'm still looking forward to Vice Verses.
