San Diego alt-rock favorites Switchfoot have released their new album interrobang via Fantasy Records and the band takes on a new style with the 11-track release.

The new record is produced by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Paul McCartney, Andrew Bird) and was mixed by Tchad Blake (Fiona Apple, Arctic Monkeys, Sheryl Crow) and is the band’s 12th full-length album release. It follows Native Tongue, released in 2019.

interrobang includes 11 tracks with previously released tracks “i need you (to be wrong),” “fluorescent” and “the bones of us.”

Switchfoot, known for its punk-pop appeal, goes in a new direction with the record, taking on a 1960’s-era pop tone.

“We find the title to be the perfect punctuation for the year that we’ve had: A question mark on top of an exclamation mark,” frontman Jon Foreman said. “Two disagreeing symbols juxtaposed on top of each other. This symbol sums up the past two years. Political tension, racial tension, economic disparity, a worldwide pandemic, and underneath it all, you and me: interrobang‽”
