Switchfoot release music video for ‘The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues)’
HollywoodNews.com: Switchfoot, led by singer Jon Foreman, has made a name for themselves on the Christian rock scene. Their latest music video is for the song entitled “The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues),” off their 2009 album “Hello Hurricane.”
The song references an American civil rights activist and speaks on the country’s past racism that is still present in today’s world. Foreman was inspired to write the song after reading Perkins’ book, “Let Justice Roll Down,” and wanted to highlight his story.
According to Wikipedia he stated, “The Sound (John Perkin’s Blues) is a very important song for us as a band. I see so much hatred and fear around me, I see so many people living out their pain. I hear it on the radio. I see it in the headlines. John Perkin’s story needs to be heard. This song was inspired by a man who sang a louder song than hatred. In a world where we are defined by our differences, Mr. Perkin’s life of service and compassion is a tangible demonstration of what it means to live a life of love. Love is the loudest song we could sing. Louder than racism. Louder than fear. Louder than hatred. John Perkin’s said it right, love is the final fight. We’re excited to hear this song on the radio, louder than pain.”
