Introducing Fiction Family with Free MP3 Download!

Last November, I had the privilege of speaking at great length with Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman after the band's New York show. He told me about his side project with Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek:

"We started out kind of just joking around. It was one of those projects that was just like, 'Yeah, let’s do it, it’ll be fun.' And then four months into it we had four or five songs and they started sounding really good," Foreman said.

He continued, "It was this type of thing that we started thinking, 'Man this is actually a legitimate project that we’re both really proud of.' And so, that’s kind of where it’s at now. I mixed it myself, basically in my bedroom back in San Diego. So we’re going to try to get somebody else to remix it — bring it a little bit more to life than my ears can. I stand in front of guitar amps all day, how good of a mixer can I be?"

Their self-titled debut album will be released January 20 on ATO Records (stay tuned for a review in the upcoming weeks). In addition, Fiction Family will kick off a 21-date nationwide tour beginning January 13. Visit their MySpace for the tour dates and to listen to "When She's Near," an exclusive track off the album click here!
