Switchfoot Win at GMA Music Awards, Hit Summer Festivals

Published: 2005-04-22
At the 36th Annual GMA Music Awards, Switchfoot was officially named "Artist of the Year". Other winners included Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin, Sanctus Real, and buzz artist tobyMac. Switchfoot continues to see their 2003 release, The Beautiful Letdown be snatched up at record stores, and get respectable airplay on both mainstream and genre-specific radio. Switchfoot took home more than "Artist of the Year" at the GMAs, they also won "Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year", "Short Form Music Video" (for "Dare You to Move"), and "Long Form Music Video" (for "Live in San Diego").

Switchfoot is planning to put out a follow up album later this year, although no further details have been released as the band is currently in the studio working on demo tracks. Check out www.switchfoot.com for exclusive photos of the band in the studio, and to download free Switchfoot iPod skins.

Despite being in the studio, Switchfoot will be hitting up the summer festival circuit:

June 29, Shirleysburg, PA Creation Festival - East
July 2, Marietta, IL Cornerstone Festival
