Switchfoot is "taking an extended break"

Read the whole message from the band here. They're apparently going to play a few shows in 2018, though there aren't any dates listed on their website at the moment. No mention of new music or anything.

This one hurts. Of course, maybe they'll come back from the indefinite break and release more music and tour some more together. But having followed this band for 14 years, including six shows, the end of this chapter is difficult.

On a personal note, I took ONE DAY off of social media to avoid Star Wars spoilers, and was a day late to hear this announcement. Serves me right.

On the bright side, maybe they'll come back in a decade for a reunion cruise!

Cousin and I are assuming they’ll play a show in San Diego and already making plans to go. Join us.

my bff said jon is going to do more solo shows. they have been hitting the road hard the last few years, so i am hoping it’s just an extended vacation to get some family time in. i’ve been listening to them for 20 years so it’s hard to remember they aren’t much older than we are, and have young families at home.

Anyone see all the Facebook comments speculating that the "Pause" or " I I " image they posted a few days ago were actually a pre-cursor for album eleven? Man, I thought were had all the feels about this news, but some people take it even further.

I wouldn’t be too surprised if there’s an album 11 in the works, but I think they’re also taking a long break. Sabrina’s right - they’ve got families and tour a lot.

Oh absolutely. I don't blame them for taking a break. I just thought it was strange that folks were so anxious to "predict" the future. They couldn't let them just be a person for a while, but wanted more out of them.

I remember when I was young and in a band. I used to think it would be fun to tour the country (let alone the world) and play music for my job. Since I hit a new decade last year, I decided I was glad that I didn't wind up in that career path. I don't think I could handle it. It would be tolling on an individual, much less a family.
