Switchfoot To Perform In St. Augustine

 

SWITCHFOOT TO PERFORM 

switchfootAT THE ST. AUGUSTINE AMPHITHEATRE 

SATURDAY, MAY 31, 2014 

St. Augustine, FL – Switchfoot with special guest Thousand Foot Krutch is set to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, May 31 at 6:30PM. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 4 at 10AM.

After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003’s The Beautiful Letdown, a double-platinum album that straddled the line between sacred and secular rock music. This album included the hits “Meant to Live” and Dare You to Move.” Switchfoot returned in September 2005 with their fifth album, Nothing Is Sound, which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. Nothing Is Sound went gold, sparked another radio hit in “Stars,” and was the first Switchfoot recording to include the work of additional guitarist Andrew Shirley (formerly a member of the contemporary Christian group All Together Separate). Wasting little time, the band returned to the studio with veteran U.K. producer Tim Palmer to begin work on its sixth album, one that found the guys broadening their musical scope. The resulting Oh! Gravity appeared at the tail end of 2006.

Hello Hurricane, which won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album. Several months after the band’s Grammy win, Switchfoot returned with Vice Verses, an album that highlighted the band’s rhythm section. During 2013, while touring in support of Vice Verses, Switchfoot made a film documenting the band’s lifelong love of surfing. Their next album, entitled Fading West, landed in January 2014. It saw the band freed from the typical constraints of the three-minute pop song, experimenting with unusual instruments and musical textures.

Toronto-area Christian rockers Thousand Foot Krutch first appeared in 1997, when Trevor McNevan, Joel Bruyere, and Steve Augustine started putting a worship song spin on a rap-metal sound similar to Limp Bizkit or Korn. After building a buzz around Ontario with numerous shows, a strong demo, and thriving trade of MP3s through its website, Thousand Foot Krutch signed with Diamante and issued Set It Off, its official debut, in March 2001. 2005’s The Art of Breaking adopted a more mainstream rock sound, which carried over to 2007’s The Flame in All of Us as well. Welcome to the Masquerade, which would be the band’s last release in 2009 with Tooth & Nail, entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 35, peaking at number two on Christian rock radio. The group’s sixth studio album, The End is Where We Begin, arrived in 2012. The album debuted No. 5 on iTunes in US, and No. 1 in Canada. It features the hits “War of Change” and “Courtesy Call”.
