The tour is in support of the alternative rock band’s seventh studio album, Hello Hurricane. Switchfoot is playing the album, which was released in November, in its entirety along with an assortment of tunes throughout the guys’ career.

After playing Coussoulis Arena in San Bernardino, Calif., this Saturday, the 2010 tour kicks off Jan. 8 with a gig at the Knitting Factory Concert House in Reno, Nev. Dates are on the books through a March 6 performance at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Fla.
