NEEDTOBREATHE are an American Rock ‘n’ Roll Band from South Carolina, effortlessly woven from the musical traditions of their upbringing in the Deep South. Comprised of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals), and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals), the band signed to Atlantic Records and quickly achieved huge cross-genre success in the US via five studio albums and innumerable headline tours.
Their last album, 2014’s Rivers In The Wasteland, became a global smash hit, debuting in the US Billboard Chart at #3, and topping both the Rock and Alternative album charts. It spawned two huge hit singles, Gold-selling ‘Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw)’ and the Grammy-nominated ‘Multiplied’, both of which gained UK airplay (the former landing itself on the BBC Radio 2 playlist).
Its UK release heralded sold-out British live shows, leading to a dedicated UK fanbase with high expectations for H A R D L O V E. They won’t be disappointed!
“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 follow the release of H A R D L O V E, which was co-produced by the band and recorded at their very own Plantation Studios in Charleston, SC, with a huge US headline tour entitled ‘TOUR DE COMPADRES 2016’, the continuation of 2015’s epic jaunt. It visits such legendary venues as Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom and New York City’s Beacon Theatre, and also includes a massive hometown concert at Charleston’s 10,000+ capacity Volvo Car Stadium on August 19th
With British dates promised soon, NEEDTOBREATHE are poised to follow their enormous US success with a UK breakthrough in 2016.
