As previously reported, following certified Gold sales and numerous Album of the Year recognitions for NOTHING IS SOUND, San Diego rock band Switchfoot is back in a California studio working on its next disc, tentatively scheduled to release in late 2006. Now, MTV.com reports further details on the project.
"We're all cutting tracks at the same time in a room, just five guys playing rock and roll," singer Jon Foreman told MTV. "We definitely have a lot more work ahead of us, but it's taking shape real nicely."
After going it alone in the early stage of recording, Switchfoot began working last week with producer Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam).
"It felt like a good fit," Foreman said. "We've been a band for so long, you want someone who can take it to the next level and get you across waters that you wouldn't be able to swim across yourself. We can only get it so far."

In related news, Switchfoot bass player Tim Foreman will hit the waves again this weekend (Saturday, June 10) at the 2nd Annual Surfrider Foundation Celebrity Surf Jam at Orange County's Huntington Beach Pier to raise awareness and support for beach and coastal environments. Other participants will include actress Minnie Driver and members of Incubus.
