Fiction Family, the collaboration between Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman and Nickel Creek’s Sean Watkins, has released a new album to correspond with the start of non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms’ Heavy and Light tour.
Fiction Family Reunion is the band’s second full-length, and you can pick up a host of special deluxe packages at their official website.
The Heavy and Light tour also features Christina Perri, Now, Now, Will Anderson (of Parachute), Aaron Gillespie (of The Almost), Bryce Avary (of The Rocket Summer), Anthony Raneri (of Bayside), Noah Gundersen, The Lone Bellow, Satellite, and award-winning spoken word poet Anis Mojgani.
Foreman, both solo and with Fiction Family, as well as Now, Now will be performing on the entire HEAVY AND LIGHT tour.
“The Heavy and Light experience has always been an amazing night of music,” Foreman said in a statement. “To bring it to the rest of the country is going to be incredible. I really believe in what TWLOHA does and have supported them since the beginning. I’m honored to join them in the Heavy and Light tour across the country.”
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $1,000,000 directly into treatment and recovery and responded to more than 170,000 messages and emails from more than 100 countries.
