Jon Foreman (about Switchfoot's album Nothing is Sound): What is true happiness? Is it a comfortable 4-door Sedan with tinted windows? Does it mean I have 2.3 children and a beautiful wife and live in a great neighborhood? Everyone has their own version of what happiness means, but many of the things we're going for, and I include myself in this, are absurd. There's this moment in Jewish scripture, in Ecclesiastes, where it says, "Meaningless, meaningless, everything is meaningless." That's the place where our new record starts.
Chad Butler: At times. I think there's nothing better then being out as the sun is setting. Sometimes I'll surf alone and just be out there with God and the dolphins. Those are amazing experiences.
Jon Foreman: I feel like one of the reasons why U2's music has meant so much to me over the years is because of they're not afraid to talk about what's going on spiritually, and it connects with you on a spiritual level. And I guess we're attempting to do the same thing.
Jon Foreman: If anything, we're more about the politics of the heart, the politics of the inside. Of course, everyone wants peace. But I think a lot of times, we overlook the fact that external peace can never happen until internal peace happens.
Tim Foreman: Whether it was Bob Dylan or Bob Marley or James Taylor, there are a lot of songs that got me through hard times growing up. To have a kid come up after a show and say, I was really contemplating suicide and I heard your song, what do you say to that? That's obviously much bigger than just four guys playing music. But it's an amazing feeling.
Jon Foreman: When you write a song that's super-personal, you don't know if people are going to understand it. One thing I've learned is a lot of times the most personal songs I've ever written are in fact the most universal.
Jon Forman-We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music.
Jon Foreman: I think you learn as an artist to make the music for a higher purpose than simply what the reactionary media's going to do with it.
Tim Foreman: There's a lot of accountability involved with sharing your take on life with a million other people, but I think that's a good thing.
Tim Foreman: You can't just kinda ignore any sort of negative press but then believe the positive press. You kinda have to play both sides of it.
Jon Foreman: Whether it's divorce, or the lack of our ability to keep peace or even the partisan politics going on right now, we are constantly falling apart on a social scale. Somewhere in there is the idea that good things happen to bad people, not bad things happen to good people.
Chad Butler: It's an interesting thing now looking at my life and seeing myself on the road with my kids—many times in a 15-passenger van with guitars all around us—and feeling like I have just an amazing heritage of faith. My dad definitely influenced me in my spiritual journey.
Chad Butler: I would definitely call myself a follower of Christ. I grew up in a Christian household.
