November 2016 - Turn It Up: Switchfoot

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-winning band Switchfoot and Grammy-nominated alternative rock band Relient K will be making a stop at Santa Ana Star Center on November 19th for their “Looking For America” Tour.

Switchfoot will be promoting their upcoming album, Where The Light Shines Through. It is the band’s tenth album and the first since 2014’s highly acclaimed Fading West and was produced in collaboration with John Fields, who helmed the multi-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown. Relient K will be promoting their eighth studio album Air For Free, once again teaming up with long time co-producing partner on Mark Lee Townsend.

Switchfoot has sold 5.7 million copies worldwide of their 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, performed sold-out world tours with over 4 million concert tickets worldwide, raised over $1 million dollars to aid kids in their community through their own BRO-AM Foundation, and earned themselves a global fan base devoted to Switchfoot’s emotionally intelligent and uplifting brand of alternative rock. $1 of every ticket sale will be donated to Switchfoot’s BRO-AM Foundation providing services to underprivileged and disadvantaged youth.*

Relient K formed in 1998 in Canton, Ohio, by Matthew Thiessen and Matt Hoopes. Relient K is best known commercially for the band’s two studio albums which peaked in the top 15 of the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. After signing with Capitol Records, the group broke into the mainstream in 2004 with the release of Mmhmm, which debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200. In 2007, the group’s fifth album, Five Score and Seven Years Ago, brought the most success for Relient K, debuting at No. 6 on the Billboard 200. The band has sold over 3 million records, with two albums being given gold certification and one album platinum by the RIAA.*
