The track has also been tapped for use by NHL Music Nights on Fox Sports Net and by ESPN for college football bumpers. Numerous other tracks from Hello Hurricane have been licensed – “The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues)” was used in the recent Verizon Wireless ad campaign for the BlackBerry® Stormâ„¢ 2 while “Bullet Soul” was selected for WWE’s “TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs” pay-per-view. “Yet” was heard in The CW’s new hit show, “The Vampire Diaries,” while the network’s “One Tree Hill” used six minutes of the epic “Your Love Is A Song” to close a recent episode.

Recorded with producer/bassist Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Rilo Kiley, Eminem, and Pink), Hello Hurricane is SWITCHFOOT’s seventh full-length and its first on Atlantic Records. The band was featured in a Rolling Stone “In The Studio” piece and on the cover of Relevant Magazine while the new album was a critic’s pick in USA Today’s Fall Music feature. “On ‘Needle and Haystack Life,’ singer Jon Foreman works his breathy croon over surging pop-punk guitars; ‘This Is the Sound’ has a brutish, heavy-metal vibe; ‘Enough’ rides a percolating art-folk groove; and ‘Bullet Soul’ could be something by Swedish garage rock band the Hives,” said Billboard while Alternative Press hailed the title track as “an uplifting, hope-giving affirmation of resurgence.”

Band members Jon Foreman (vocals/guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Chad Butler (drums), Jerome Fontamillas (keys/guitar) and Drew Shirley (guitar) are continually seeking new ways to convey that message of hope. In that spirit, that they are launching a new website, http://www.theworldyouwant.com, which will spotlight goodness, beauty, and truth in everyday life. Fans are invited to contribute stories about people they know who are making this world a better place. With the holidays quickly approaching, Jon Foreman addressed the timely topic of “Compassion vs. Consumption” in the second of two articles he penned for The Huffington Post:
