You guys know switchfoot ? no ? ok then no need to feel bad, most of my friends also the same. Thats why when they came and held a concert here in KL, i had to go solo cos nobody knew Switchfoot *forever alone face. Anyway, let met tell you a lil bit of Switchfoor in this post if you dont know about this awesome band. For starters, ill give you a spoiler : They sound friggin awesome live! :).
Meet switchfoot, 5 piece band from San Diego, USA. Their genre is more on Alternative rock, some of the media categorized them as Christian Rock because their previous label Re:Think was associated with CCM , a gospel label. Getting their famous break after a movie A Walk to Remember which featured their singles such as Dare You To Move, Learning to Breathe and Only Hope. You know the movies right ? the one who introduce us to the innocent face of Mandy Moore ?. You probably think that Only Hope is Mandy’s song, because that was the song who rocketed her as a singer also. Only Hope is written by Jon Foreman and included in their second album The New Way to Be Human.
Two international artist concert in one weekend, thats too much aint it ? ya i thought so also. I had that last week because last month i bought two concert ticket separately without knowing that it just only one day difference between them. Oh well, its Maroon 5 and Switchfoot anyways and both of them performed awesomely, i fell less guilty about the money spent for those. Heres my take up on Maroon 5, ill follow up with Switchfoot later.
Last weekend, i went to the concert by a metal band which ive been following them since junior high. I watch them first time on the afternoon MTV show (alternative nation or most wanted, im not sure) through their video clip “Back To School” and it was straigthly headbanging me down. Then i know them more on the Family Values tour DVD with other bands such as Korn and Limp Bizkit, from that i knew their powerhouse singles like ” 7 words” and “engine no 9”. If you still dont know who is this band im talking about, Youtube those two singles i mention before and i guarantee it will blow your simple mind of yours haha. Yes, im talking about Chino Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham, Frank Delgado and Stephen Carpenter a.k.a Deftones.
