Rebuild is a song written by Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Matt Thiessen of Relient K. The song was written in conjunction with the bands' 2007 Appetite For Construction Tour. Members from all three bands on tour, Switchfoot, Relient K, and Ruth, performed on the song. Matt Thiessen sang second vocals, and Dustin Ruth played harmonica.
All proceeds from the song download will be donated to Habitat For Humanity. It was slated to surface on iTunes, but Relient K frontman Matt Thiessen said the two bands would release the single online for free, but with an option for donation for Habitat. “So I think we’re gonna release it for free online and create a place where people can donate to Habitat,” Thiessen said.
The song was first played live on October 17, 2007 at a live show in Columbus, Ohio.
