The Switchfoot rock group has taken their musical journey to another level in Fading West, a new full-length film documenting the five band members’ travels to remote surf locations in search of inspiration. Born and raised in Southern California, the Switchfoot family has always looked to the ocean for refreshment, cleanse and motivation. During their one year surf and tour trip, the band met up with legendary professional athletes like Rob Machado in Bali, and Tom Curren in New Zealand, to surf incredible waves and share in their love of music.
In an attempt to seek new ideas for their Fading West album, Switchfoot experiences the most unforgettable moments of happiness and some of the hardest times in their brotherhood. The Surf Channel went behind-the-scenes with Switchfoot bass player, Tim Foreman, and drummer, Chad Butler, to get a deeper look into their documentary.
Bass guitarist, Tim Foreman, describes a scary situation in South Africa when his brother, Jon Foreman, breaks his surfboard in half during a giant swell in shark-infested waters. Drummer Chad Butler opens up about how surfing inspires their music and the challenges of being on tour.
Keep your eyes out in early December for the digital release of Switchfoot: “Fading West” the Movie.
