Switchfoot and Relient K Tour

(PR) It's official - Switchfoot and Relient K will be touring together for the first time since 2001. The 30-city, co-headlining tour launches in Charleston, WV on October 16th. While sorting out details for the upcoming tour, Switchfoot and Relient K discovered they shared a mutual respect for Habitat for Humanity. So they've made arrangements for one dollar from each ticket sold to be donated to the non-profit organization, which seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

"For the past three years the Bro-am has been an amazing chance to give back to our local community," says Switchfoot lead vocalist Jon Foreman of the annual surfing/music event the band founded to benefit San Diego's Care House. "We wanted our next tour to be built the same way: giving directly to local communities around the country. Habitat for Humanity was an obvious fit; we're honored to be partnering with such a great organization."

"We've been trying to get back on the road with Switchfoot ever since the first time we toured together," says Relient K lead singer Matt Thiessen. "The two of our bands combine for a really diverse show that seems to flow together in a very natural way. We're also big fans, so we get to ask for their autographs and take pictures with them every night."
