Switchfoot headlined Celebrate Freedom Atlanta, the largest free one-day concert in Atlanta, on Sept.4.  With its biggest crowd yet, the event drew an estimated 50,000 people this year.  Switchfoot members are pictured above in concert and while completing an interview with event promoter, WFSH 104.7 The Fish (Atlanta).  The radio station is playing the band’s new hit AC single, “Your Love Is A Song,” from Hello Hurricane.

In addition to the AC single, Switchfoot’s Hello Hurricane has sparked the Top 10 Modern Rock hit “The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues),” which continues to climb the charts and is the featured song in the fall CSI: Miami promotional video that can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hozHZpqWufY.

Check out the attached inspiration behind the current radio singles by Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman.
