Switchfoot is an alternative rock band from San Diego, California, United States. The current members are Jon Foreman (vocals,guitar), Tim Foreman (bass,backing vocals), Chad Butler (drums), Jerome Fontamillas (guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), andDrew Shirley (guitar). Known for their energetic live show,the three guitarists in the line-up often operate simultaneously,building on the pop sensibilities of Jon's songwriting, and, rounded out by Jerome's work onthe synthesizer, bringing his Industrialroots to the sound, the band works up "the Switchfoot sound" - a melodic crunch of densely layered sound featuringsomeelectronic experimentation, and often driven by hard-charging guitar riffs, while throwing in a few softer, spacey ballads as well.

Switchfoot first gained mainstream recognition after the inclusion of four of their songs in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember.This recognition led to theirmajor label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which was released in 2003 and sold over 2.6 millioncopies as well as featuring their best-known singles, "Meant toLive" and "Dare You to Move".

According to Jon Foreman, the name "Switchfoot" is a surfing term. "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so tous, the name made sense. Toswitch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change andmovement, a different way of approaching life and music". « hide
