Switchfoot will perform in Manila on March 27.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Switchfoot is returning to Manila in March.

The American rock band is scheduled to perform at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater on March 27 as part of the Walkway show produced by Church Simplified.

The news was confirmed exclusively to CNN Philippines Digital on Tuesday (February 16) by Church Simplified director Bebo Bharwani.

It will be the band's third visit to the country.

Switchfoot first came to Manila in September 2007 for a benefit concert at the Cuneta Astrodome. In April 2011, Switchfoot performed at the PhilSports Arena as part of their global "The Hello Hurricane Tour."

"This time they'll be promoting Fading West, but who knows we might hear unreleased stuff since they are in the process of completing their 10th album," said Bharwani.

The concert is the culminating event of the Walkway Station of the Cross interactive art exhibit, which will run from Palm Sunday (March 20) until Easter Sunday (March 27) at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

The concert is free, but fans who would want to get up close to the band will need tickets. He said the mechanics on how to avail of the tickets will be announced soon.

"Usually it comes free when they purchase the souvenir shirt for the Walkway exhibit. It just helps us cover some of the costs," he added.

Switchfoot is known for their hit singles "Dare You To Move," "Stars," "Mess of Me," and "Love Alone Is Worth the Fight." They won a Grammy Award in 2011 for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album.

The band's tenth studio album is set to be released this year.
