SAN DIEGO, CA, (May 11, 2017) – Multi-platinum selling rockers SWITCHFOOT have premiered a brand new acoustic cover video of LIFEHOUSE’S “Flight” today via Paste Magazine. The cover comes ahead of the band’s tour with LIFEHOUSE, the “Looking For Summer” tour. It kicks off on July 23rd at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO and will run into the fall, culminating at The Masonic in San Francisco on September 10th. Up-and-coming songstress Brynn Elliott will open every night of the tour. For additional information and a full list of upcoming dates, please see below or visit: www.LookingForSummerTour.com.
On the new video, Jon Foreman shares: “There are a few Lifehouse songs that everyone has heard – Great tunes that get played on the radio all the time. But the other day I heard a Lifehouse tune I had never heard before. I was in Home Depot when I first heard ‘Flight’ – such a beautiful song for such a beautiful place! I had to learn it and try it on for size.”
Formed in San Diego in 1996, SWITCHFOOT is Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keyboard, guitar), Drew Shirley (guitar), and Chad Butler (drums). Since their start, the band has sold over 5.7 million copies worldwide of their first nine studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s Grammy Award-winning Hello Hurricane), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles, and performed sold-out world tours with over 4 million concert tickets worldwide.
SWITCHFOOT released their latest album, Where The Light Shines Through, on July 8th, 2016 via Vanguard Records.
