GILFORD, N.H. – The rock band Switchfoot and Howie Day, a 23-year old singer/songwriter from Bangor, will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 26, at Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center.

After occupying a spot among the top 50 Billboard sales chart for the past eight months, Switchfoot’s fourth record, “the beautiful letdown,” has been certified double platinum. After reaching No. 5 on the alternative and pop radio charts with its debut single “Meant To Live,” Switchfoot’s second single “Dare You to Move” quickly reached Top 10 status on alternative and pop radio charts. Every Switchfoot fan knows, however, that the live show is where the band lives and breathes.

Since the release of “beautiful,” the band has played more than 300 performances worldwide, mostly sold out.

Day continues to explore themes of love, regret and loss in his lyrics. The key to his growing success has been strong grassroots support from enthusiastic fans who helped spread the word about his music.

After recording “Australia” in two and three song bursts over the course of a year, Day says it was refreshing to record “Stop All The World Now” all at once. “When I listen to my first record now, I can hear myself growing up in those songs; time stretching out,.”

“The new album is more like a current snapshot, and its not overexposed or blurry,” Day said.

Tickets are available at the Meadowbrook box office; call (603) 293- 4700. Or, go online to
