Hello sports fans! Just writing to let you know some exciting news on popular Grammy-winning San Diego rock band Switchfoot, who are teaming up with ESPN this weekend to premiere 5 new songs from their upcoming album ‘Vice Verses’ during Saturday’s Oklahoma at Florida State game on ABC’s Saturday Night Football at 8 p.m. EST. The telecast will also feature Switchfoot’s new video of the first single “Dark Horses”.

Not to sound arrogant, but I had forgotten all about Switchfoot. The band that was “meant to live for so much more” is getting set to release its eighth (eighth?!) studio record Vice Verses on September 27th, the follow up to late 2009’s Hello Hurricane. While Switchfoot might not have been as relevant in the mainstream over the last few years, the group continues to be well recognized in the Christian rock scene, garnering several Grammy nominations for Best Rock Gospel Album.
