Drew Shirley Interview

INTERVIEW: SWITCHFOOT | “Looking For America Tour” w/ Relient K | Coming to Myth Live Event Center, St Paul, MN, Septembder 23, 2016

by • September 21, 2016

2016 marks 20 years of music for Switchfoot. They just released their 10th album this summer and are currently touring with Relient K to properly celebrate the milestone.

Through the years, Switchfoot have never been bashful about their love for people, culture, and overcoming adversity together. It comes as no surprise that their 10th album released this July, Where the Light Shines Through, faces relatable challenges with hopeful lyrics and rambunctious guitar riffs.
