Hot off the heels of their recent collaboration with NEEDTOBREATHE on “Carry Me,” GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Switchfoot is back with a captivating new music video for their latest single “the bones of us.”
Directed by frequent Switchfoot collaborator Erick Frost, the “the bones of us” video depicts frontman Jon Foreman shrouded in the dark of night, aimlessly driving through the forgotten streets of his hometown.
“‘the bones of us’ is a song that attempts to move from the death of the past into a brighter future,” says Foreman. “When we recorded this song, we were chasing a feeling—we wanted to capture the audio version of what a dream would sound like. For the music video we had the same aim. Driving my friend’s old ‘57 Ford Ranch Wagon down the deserted streets of my hometown in the middle of the night was surreal. Dreamlike. I found myself transported back to the same blurry eyed heartache that inspired the song.”
“the bones of us” is the latest single off Switchfoot’s forthcoming album interrobang, which is set for release on August 20 via Fantasy Records. “the bones of us” is a bittersweet song, shot with a ray of hopefulness as the song decrescendos and leaves its overarching message hanging in the air: “yes, I’m fighting for myself,” says the narrator, “but most of all for you.”
Switchfoot recently announced that they will join long-time friends NEEDTOBREATHE on their Fall 2021 It’s A Mystery headlining, U.S. tour along with rising indie-pop group, The New Respects. The 37-city run kicks off on September 7 in St. Louis, MO and will hit major markets across the U.S. including Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, CO, The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, and Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
This tour marks the first time all three bands have been back on the road since live shows were shut down in March of 2020 due to COVID-19. Tickets are on sale now.
