Switchfoot, eponymous surfers, comes to the Filene Center at Wolf Trap on Tuesday, August 11.
They are among three bands opening for NEEDTOBREATHE. The other openers are Colony House and Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.
Switchfoot, hailing from San Diego, achieved fame with their 2003 single “Meant to Live”. Largely marketed as a Christian rock band early in their career, they have released nine full-length albums to date. Their most recent is 2014’s album, Fading West.
Formed in 1996, Switchfoot’s name comes from the act of a surfer switching their feet to change directions.
Their other major hit, “Dare You to Move”, was featured in the film, A Walk to Remember.
Jon Foreman (lead vocals) also has a solo project coming out this year, called The Wonderlands. It consists of four EPs, titled Sunlight, Shadows, Darkness and Dawn respectively and each released throughout the year. Sunlight and Shadows have already been released and are available for purchase.
