Switchfoot has postponed its hometown album release show that was originally scheduled for today, January 15th to February 3rd, after frontman Jon Foreman got injured in a surfing accident.

The rock band from San Diego, California had initially planned to celebrate the release of its new record Fading West with a concert at the Casbah in their hometown. Unfortunately, Jon sustained a wound to his face while surfing on January 13th, Monday and will need a few days of rest before going back on stage.


“You travel all around the world making a movie and record built around surfing, and really push yourself to ride some really challenging waves,” Jon said in a statement. “So it’s more than a bit ironic to get injured in your own backyard. Thankful that I’m okay — it could have been much worse.”

The show, rescheduled for February 3rd and those with tickets to the sold-out show can still visit the Casbah tonight for a signing of the band’s new album. Fans also get to partake in a meet-and-greet with the band members.
