Afterlife

Album: Vice Verses (2011)
  • Switchfoot is a Contemporary Christian band with a broad appeal, as their songs work on a secular level as well. In this song, Jon Foreman sings about the importance of living in the present, taking control of your fate, and not simply awaiting the afterlife. It's the first song on Vice Verses, which was their second album released on their own label.
  • In our 2011 interview with Jon Foreman, he explained: "I think that this record was a little more personal than it was taking from other subject material. And most of the songs are in the first person and - I mean, the first word of the whole record is 'I' ('I've tasted fire, I'm ready to come alive'). But I think the whole thing is definitely a little bit more of an inward look at the struggle rather than being inspired by books or something I was reading."
