Switchfoot just wrapped their successful Tour De Compadres with NEEDTOBREATHE, but the band isn't resting long before getting back to work. Amidst frontman Jon Foreman's solo tour dates to promote his new 4-EP project, The Wonderlands, the band will be working out plans for their 10th studio album, set to release in 2016. Foreman announced the band's new album from the stage while on Tour De Compadres, and talked about it in more detail in an interview with Jesusfreakhideout.com's John DiBiase last Wednesday.

Foreman told Jesusfreakhideout.com, "On September 1st, 2nd and 3rd, we're going to have our meetings down in San Diego in the studio, discussing what it'll look like. We've got so many songs! We've been kind of stockpiling songs over the last year... or two. And writing. We're trying to approach this one completely different. I mean, again, we've had the privilege of making nine records. So for this record, you really want to find something--not just for other people to listen to--but for your own sake to celebrate the journey. We want to find something new."

About the album, Foreman adds, "Most of the songs have started from me with an acoustic guitar. We've dabbled with bass and drums in the past, but this round, we've been kind of doing an approach where we'll sit in the studio and spend all day writing songs in like a 15-20 minute block. So all of us, while playing our instruments, will work on a song, an idea, a spark--no lyrics, just melodies and a beat. Just a vibe, y'know? And at the end of that, we start something new. So at the end of the day, we've got like 20 or 30 what we call "seeds" and then you pick your favorite seeds and that's when you start *laughs* watering them and see if they can turn into a tree. That's where you add the lyrics and kind of the structure to the song. So it's been really rewarding so far. It's basically the equivalent of throwing paint on the wall and seeing what happens. Yeah, it's been a blast!"

Foreman's third EP in The Wonderlands series, Darkness, releases September 4.
