Switchfoot 'Fading West' details

Grammy-award winning alt-rock band Switchfoot announce the release of their ninth studio album as well as the details behind their new feature film, both titled Fading West.

The new studio effort will be released in January 2014 on Atlantic Records/Word, a new EP is out now and the 80-minute film will serve as the opening act on the band's storyteller-style tour beginning in September. A full tour routing is below.

Inspired by such films as Rattle and Hum and Endless Summer, the Fading West feature film follows Switchfoot as they travel the globe in search of new musical inspiration and perfect waves.

Directed by Matt Katsolis and filmed during Switchfoot's 2012 World Tour, the film charts the creation of the San Diego-based fivesome's upcoming album in its earliest and most unpredictable stages.

Part rock documentary, part surf film, and part travelogue, Fading West offers rare glimpses of the longtime surfers on their boards and in the waves, captures the frenetic energy of their live shows, and in the end portrays a journey both epic and intimate.

The 9th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert returns to North County San Diego July 12-13, 2013. The festivities kick off July 12 with the Switchfoot Bro-Am Auction Night Soiree at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, followed by the daylong event at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on July 13, featuring a variety of activities including a charity surf contest, a nerf surf jousting exposition between surf contest heats, The Rob Machado Bro Junior, and a live concert with Switchfoot on the beach along with special guests.

A Belly Up Tavern After-Party hosted by Switchfoot and features performances by Jon Foreman's side project Fiction Family. New this year, the Bro-Am is working with Action Sports Productions to add a live Web cast, which will stream the surf contest/concert at Moonlight Beach, allowing supporters from around the US and world to tune in and catch the Bro-Am action live.
