To celebrate the release of their new album, interrobang, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Switchfoot for an intimate conversation with their Producer Tony Berg about the making of their new album. The conversation is moderated by music personality, radio & TV host, and MTV & VH1 video DJ Matt Pinfield.
San Diego’s alt rock quintet Switchfoot has been continually breaking musical barriers in their 20+ career. They have sold almost 10 million copies worldwide of their eleven studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough ‘The Beautiful Letdown’ and 2009's GRAMMY Award-winning ‘Hello Hurricane’), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles and have had songs in numerous TV shows and movies. They have also performed sold-out tours with over 5 million concert tickets sold in over 40 countries around the world.
On their new album, interrobang, Switchfoot reaches a bold new creative peak. Working with producer Tony Berg (Paul McCartney, Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird) Sound City studio in Van Nuys, CA Switchfoot: Jon Foreman, Tim Foreman, Chad Butler, Jerome Fontamillas, and Drew Shirley recorded the album in a burst of pent-up mid-pandemic creativity throughout last year and into 2021. Fearlessly marrying 60’s experimentalism and synth-driven new wave swagger, the band pushed past its comfort zones and retooled its sound.
