San Diego rock band Switchfoot tells all in an interview in Risen Magazine, on newsstands now.

While crisscrossing the Mississippi River and Northeast Coast on tour this summer, Rock act Switchfoot's consciousness graces the pages of Risen Magazine, on newsstands now. The band's popularity and influence is not to be denied and their lyrics reflect their down-to-earth and thought provoking comments in their one-on-one interview with Risen's Senior Writer, Chris Ahrens in the July/August issue of Risen Magazine.

The San Diego based rock band is gearing up for the release of their latest record, "Nothing is Sound," due out September 13th. The five musicians, Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass, vocals), Jerome Fontamillas (keyboards, vocals), Drew Shirley (guitar) and Chad Butler (drums) are as comfortable in front of Risen's photographer, Aaron Chang as they are now performing in front of thousands of fans. The interview is riveted with authentic moments as the band navigates between two realities; rock star and man while striving for the best. Jon Foreman illustrates this dual role in his interview in Risen,

"I remember distinctly getting offstage and there are 2,000 people screaming More, more…You walk backstage and it's just you, in the back of the bus with a sweaty T- shirt…"

Luckily the fans get the awesome contribution Switchfoot is making to music, as demonstrated by their fourth record, "The Beautiful Letdown" being certified Double Platinum for sales of over 2.6 million copies.

Risen Magazine, a cultural collage of original interviews, photographs and the search for truth; the inner truth of the artists and icons featured, is breaking new ground. It seeks not the same old, tired stories of the famous; Risen digs for their personal search for meaning in a confusing world. Risen is also known for it's exploration of truth in terms of values, in religion and the secular world. Like Risen Magazine, Switchfoot has a big goal for the band: "to get people to ask big questions," said band member Tom Foreman in this exclusive interview for Risen Magazine.

While many bands might take a little time to bask in their accomplishments, Switchfoot isn't one of them. They continue to climb the charts and make fans rock and think at the same time; quite an accomplishment. Switchfoot is appearing on 07/15/05 at the Sonshine Festival in Wilmar, MN and on 7/22/05 for the Naval Concert Series in Norfolk, VA. Please check Switchfoot's Web site at for additional dates.

Switchfoot's interview and exclusive new photos are available now through Risen Magazine's, unique build your own magazine feature for 99 cents at or on newsstands throughout the country.
