After attending Portland’s stop of the Looking for America: Part II tour featuring Switchfoot, HM was pleased to once again see the San Diego surfers partnering with a great charity, CURE, an effort to raise money for children with curable diseases and impairments.

To help raise money, the band has partnered with the organization to give away a round-trip experience for two people to travel to the Philippines and see the band live in Manila.

Switchfoot keyboardist/guitarist Jerome Fontamillas spoke via press release about visiting and helping CURE:

“I had the incredible honor to go to the Philippines, not to play a show, but to visit a hospital operated by CURE, a hospital that specializes in treating children with orthopedic conditions. I was born in the Philippines, and, being Filipino, made it that much more special to go back to my birth country. During this trip I had some pretty incredible experiences that I will cherish for as long as I live.”

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
