Nashville, TN (January 29, 2019)
Momentum continues for Switchfoot as fans and critics resonate with the GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band’s message of love and positivity in their new album Native Tongue. The 14-song collection debuted in the Top Ten on multiple Billboard, Amazon and iTunes charts.
Native Tongue secured the No. 2 spots on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart and Current Rock Albums chart and No. 3 on Current Alternative Albums, No. 6 on Top Current Albums and Current Digital Albums, No. 22 on Vinyl Albums and No. 41 on Top 200.
The band’s 11th studio album also charted No. 1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Alternative Rock, No. 6 on Best Sellers in Digital Albums and No. 20 on Best Sellers CDs & Vinyl as well as No. 2 on iTunes Top Albums Alternative and No. 5 on Top Albums All-Genre chart.
Reviews for the project, recorded primarily at Melody League Studios in the band’s hometown of San Diego, are continuing to roll in with more critics raving:
“It feels like the band is having fun, swinging progressively along on bombastic booms and stopping on a dime to give way to plunking piano keys and snapping fingers. George Martin would be proud.”
—Doug Van Pelt, HM Magazine
“Written in the band’s hometown of San Diego, the record is a radical reinvention of Switchfoot’s established sound.”
—David James Young, Mixdown Mag
“Switchfoot continues to release tracks that emanate its familiar rock sound, but even its newer, softer tunes encompass something everyone can love.”
—Bre Offenberger, The Post Athens
“Native Tongue shows Switchfoot once again channeling their multi-faceted rock sound to give different songs different flavors.”
—Sam Mendez, Ultimate Guitar
The North American leg of Switchfoot’s Native Tongue Tour kicks off February 14th in Asheville, N.C.. Colony House and Tyson Motsenbocker will join the band as supporting acts.
