SWITCHFOOT READY TO EMBARK
“DARE YOU TO MOVE” CLIMBS INTO THE TOP 40
The Beautiful Letdown is Switchfoot's debut release for Columbia Records and is the band's fastest selling record to date passing the 1,000,000 mark and being certified platinum by the RIAA in May. The album is currently #16 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart after a year and a half of being released. The Beautiful Letdown features the crossover smash rock hits "Meant To Live" and "Dare You To Move." As did "Meant To Live," "Dare You To Move" hit the top 10 on the Alternative & Rock charts this past summer and is now crossing over to Top 40 radio. The single is #28 this week.
Switchfoot also have a brand new DVD in-stores titled Live in San Diego. Live in San Diego was recorded at San Diego's fabled punk rock venue Soma and features a scorching set of tunes from The Beautiful Letdown as well as some of their earlier recordings. The DVD takes fans behind-the-scenes of the "Meant To Live" video shoot and features exclusive & candid interviews with the entire band, as well as exclusive photo galleries.
Switchfoot has experienced astonishing success on both radio and other media this past year. The band has toured the country four times to sold-out crowds since early 2003 and they've been featured in Rolling Stone, USA Today and have performed on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Conan O'Brien Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, CBS's The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
