Directed by Matt Katsolis and filmed during Switchfoot's 2012 World Tour, the film charts the creation of the San Diego-based fivesome's upcoming ninth album in its earliest and most unpredictable stages. Part rock documentary, part surf film, and part travelogue, Fading West offers rare glimpses of the longtime surfers on their boards and in the waves, captures the frenetic energy of their live shows, and in the end portrays a journey both epic and intimate.
