NEEDTOBREATHE to Release New Album “H A R D L O V E”


Grammy-nominated Southern rock band, NEEDTOBREATHE have announced that the new album “H A R D L O V E” is now available for pre-order, with all purchases accompanied by instant grat downloads of the lead single, “HAPPINESS” as well as the album track “MONEY & FAME.” Exclusive album pre-order bundles that also include limited-edition merchandise will be available at the band’s Official Online Store (store.NEEDTOBREATHE.com).  “HAPPINESS” – available on all streaming services and DSPs along with “MONEY & FAME” – impacts Hot AC radio outlets in early May.

"Up until now, I think we made people climb in through the window to really get into our band, but this record is about leaving the front door wide open. It's very different and adventurous for us, but I can't wait for the fans to hear it,” explains lead singer Bear Rinehart.

NEEDTOBREATHE will celebrate “H A R D L O V E” with “TOUR DE COMPADRES 2016,” an epic US headline run kicking off August 17th at Raleigh, NC’s Red Hat Amphitheater and then traveling through a November 12th finale at Lynchburg, VA’s Liberty University (see attached itinerary). The second annual “TOUR DE COMPADRES” sees NEEDTOBREATHE bringing along some of their closest musical friends as support, including special guests Mat Kearney, John Mark McMillan (Leg 1 only), Parachute (Leg 2 only), and Welshly Arms (another favourite of ours, check them out if you get the chance!!!). Highlights include a massive hometown concert at Charleston, SC’s 10,000+ capacity Volvo Car Stadium on August 19th as well as performances at such legendary venues as Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre (September 10th), Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (September 15th), Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom (October 30th), and New York City’s Beacon Theatre (November 2nd). Tickets will be released to the general public on April 15th. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.tourdecompadres.com.

Co-produced by NEEDTOBREATHE and recorded at their very own Plantation Studios in Charleston, SC, “H A R D L O V E” follows the band’s blockbuster album “Rivers In the Wasteland,” which made a stunning chart debut upon its 2014 release, topping Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” and “Top Alternative Albums” charts while also entering the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #3. What’s more, the album’s stunning “Multiplied” earned NEEDTOBREATHE their first ever GRAMMY® Award nomination.

The album’s breakout single, “Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw),” proved to be the highest charting single of their career. The RIAA-certified Gold hit song became a Top 10 rock smash, Top 20 CHR/Hot AC favorite, as well as NEEDTOBREATHE’s first-ever entry on Billboard’s “Hot 100.” The track’s companion video – directed by independent filmmaker Jared Hogan – has drawn close to 10 million views at NEEDTOBREATHE’s official YouTube channel.

NEEDTOBREATHE premiered “TOUR DE COMPADRES” in summer 2015, visiting over 40 US markets accompanied by special guests Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and Colony House. The aptly named tour was a massive popular and commercial success, with highlights including a sold out date at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, captured exclusively by TIDAL in the just-released mini-documentary, “NEEDTOBREATHE LIVE AT RED ROCKS.”
