Switchfoot is a Grammy-nominated alternative rock band from San Diego, California, United States. The band members are Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass, backing vocals), Chad Butler (drums), Jerome Fontamillas (guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), and Drew Shirley (guitar). Known for their energetic live show, the three guitarists in the line-up often operate simultaneously, building on the pop sensibilities of Jon's songwriting, and, rounded out by Jerome's work on the synthesizer, bringing his industrial roots to the sound, the band works up "the Switchfoot sound"- a melodic crunch of densely layered sound featuring some electronic experimentation, and often driven by hard-charging guitar riffs, while throwing in a few softer, spacey ballads as well.

Switchfoot first gained mainstream recognition after the inclusion of four of their songs in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember . This recognition led to their major label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which was released in 2003 and sold over 2.6 million copies as well as featuring their best-known singles, "Meant to Live" and "Dare You to Move".

According to Jon Foreman, the name "Switchfoot" is a surfing term. "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music".

Switchfoot was founded in 1996 as "Chin Up", consisting of Jon and his brother Tim, along with Chad on the drums. After playing only a few shows, in 1997, the band was contacted by Charlie Peacock, and signed to his re:think Records, a division of Sparrow Records, under the current moniker "Switchfoot". Re: think would distribute their first three albums, The Legend of Chin, New Way to Be Human and Learning to Breathe.

Of Switchfoot's first three albums Learning to Breathe was the most successful. The album was certified gold by the RIAA , and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Gospel Album.

In 2002 Switchfoot had a large role in the music for the movie A Walk to Remember. Singer and actress Mandy Moore, who starred in the movie, sang Switchfoot's song "Only Hope" during a scene in the movie. The movie's soundtrack also featured a duet with Mandy Moore and Jon Foreman, and as many as four other Switchfoot songs, in addition to Mandy Moore's cover of "Only Hope".

In 2004, following the commercial success of The Beautiful Letdown, the band released The Early Years: 1997-2000 3 CD Set:The Legend of Chin • New Way to be Human • Learning to Breathe, a collection of the albums released under rethink records which included the original artwork for all the albums.

They will play for the very first time in Malaysia on 2nd Feb 2008 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Make sure you make your way there.
