This is the sound of a heartbeat this is the sound from the discontented mouths of a haunted nation we are the voice of breaking down Can you hear me? This is the sound of the desperation bound by our own collision we are the voice of breaking down... John Perkins said it right.. love is the final fight.
Switchfoots next single is going to be "The Sound (John M. Perkins' Blues)", and the official release date at radio is April 26th.
Here's what Jon had to say about the song:
"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."
