Needtobreathe announce headline tour, Conan appearance and new album

By on February 18, 2014


NEEDTOBREATHE is excited to announce the first leg of an extensive North American headlining tour in support of their anticipated new album Rivers In the Wasteland, out April 15th on Atlantic Records. On May 1st, the Charleston, SC rock band will kick off their tour which will see them visit some of the country’s most notable venues and perform at summer festivals such as the Hangout Music Festival and Suburbia Music Festival. Glassnote Records artist Foy Vance will be direct support on this leg.


To give fans a sneak peek into these new songs live, NEEDTOBREATHE will return to Conan on February 20th to perform their first single “The Heart.” Listen to the track here:


Billboard Magazine caught up with the guys and is premiering new track “State I’m In.” Check it out here:


Rivers In the Wasteland is the follow up to the band’s acclaimed album The Reckoning, a collection of timeless American rock and roll that caught the attention of many including The New York Times who simply saidthis gifted band makes anthemic Southern rock” and Entertainment Weekly who applauds the bands “arena muscle” and “porch-pickin’ country … sharp enough to inspire both lighter waving and moonshine chugging.”


With non-stop touring and gripping performances, the band’s powerful live show – one which NPR praises as “intriguing and vivacious” – has helped build a dedicated fan base, one that allows them to play in front of thousands of people across the country. NEEDTOBREATHE will spend all of 2014 on the road!


Rivers In the Wasteland was co-produced by the band with the help of various producers including Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket), Kevin Augunas (The Lumineers), Ed Cash and Jerrod Bettis (Adele).
