NEEDTOBREATHE have quickly become one of the most recognizable bands in contemporary music, transcending the boundaries for alternative rock with their anthemic tracks and uplifting lyrics. Whether Bear Rinehart is belting out one of their many hits or improvising an elaborate guitar solo on his Gibson, NEEDTOBREATHE give fans everything they've got with passionate, captivating performances that have fans singing along like a backing choir. 2014 brings a new album for the trio as they dive head-first into their Rivers In The Wasteland world tour for a series of highly anticipated dates.
Brothers William Stanley "Bear" Rinehart III and Nathaniel Bryant "Bo" Rinehart got their start performing for caffeine aficionados at local coffee houses around Furman University, where Bear was an all-star wide receiver for the university football team. Realizing their callings as musicians, the brothers formed NEEDTOBREATHE with drummer Joe Stillwell and bassist Seth Bolt, writing original songs in Bolt's Plantation Studios. After recording several promising EPs, the band caught the attention of Lava Records, leading to a record deal with the label in 2005. NEEDTOBREATHE released their debut album Daylight the following year, developing a strong following with the album's success. Their next three records featured a collection of No. 1 hits, including "Signature of Divine (Yahweh)" and "Washed By the Water," and earned the band ten GMA Dove Awards in a five year period. NEEDTOBREATHE's fifth studio album Rivers In The Wasteland is nothing short of dazzling and paves the way for their 2014 tour, which will feature a full set list of their boot-stomping Southern rock tunes.

"It's nice to see a band that works so well together. The music was fantastic and their performance made my night. I would definitely see them again!"
