Something For the Rest of Us, the band’s ninth album and first since 2006’s gold-selling Let Love In, is due in stores later this spring. The group recorded the new studio effort in their hometown of Buffalo, NY and in Los Angeles. Producers Tim Palmer (U2, Switchfoot) and Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Paramore) were brought in to assist on the sessions, along with mixer Mike “Spike” Stent (Radiohead, Dave Matthews Band).
Switchfoot is touring in support of their recently-released seventh studio album, Hello Hurricane. The album–the group’s first on their own lowercase people records–hit stores late last year. Hello Hurricane follows Switchfoot’s 2006 release, Oh! Gravity., which peaked at #18 on The Billboard 200.
The Spill Canvas’ most recent full-length studio effort, No Really, I’m Fine, surfaced in 2007. The set was re-released in 2008 by Sire Records as a double-vinyl package featuring the rarities collection Scraps on the second disc.
