To coincide with the tour announcement, NEEDTOBREATHE has unveiled their brand new single “Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)” http://youtu.be/CgV4jG2auZA
. Entertainment Weekly premiered the track last week, calling the song “…full, anthemic, a little bit woodsy and alarmingly catchy.” The rave review further enthused, “[frontman] Bear Rinehart’s sincerity is unmistakable in his vocals, and the bluegrass backing culminates in something sweetly rich.” “Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)” is available now as a digital seven-inch which also includes an exclusive, acoustic version of the song. “Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)” is the second single off of the band’s latest album “RIVERS IN THE WASTELAND,” which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 upon its release last year.
NEEDTOBREATHE recently received their first GRAMMY nomination for their song “Multiplied,” also featured on “RIVERS IN THE WASTELAND.” After attending the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles, the band will head overseas to begin their headlining tour in Australia.
NEEDTOBREATHE is a GRAMMY-nominated, American Rock ‘n’ Roll Band from South Carolina, effortlessly woven from the musical traditions and faith of their upbringing in the Deep South of the United States. Made up of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals) and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals), the band hit their big break in 2005 when they signed to Atlantic/Lava/Word Records. The career to follow would include four full studio albums, chart-topping cross-genre success, multiple headlining tours and media coverage on CONAN, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with David Letterman, CBS This Morning, MTV, FOX and much more. The band’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album “RIVERS IN THE WASTELAND” was released on April 15, 2014, and debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
