NEEDTOBREATHE is gearing up for the release of their new album Rivers In the Wasteland, out next Tuesday April 15th on Atlantic Records. In support, the critically acclaimed band will bring their captivating live show to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 18th and will return to the Late Show with David Letterman on April 23rd to perform new single “The Heart.” Check out the records official video here:


Early praise for Rivers In the Wasteland includes the UK’s The Clash who applauds the albums “strident, anthemic songwriting,” while MTV praises the bands “thunderous folk-rock” and adds “the South Carolina natives have managed to infuse the contemporary, chest-thumping rock styling’s of Imagine Dragons with the old-school, down-home goodness of a group like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young … wrapped up in an ethereal, woodsy, Bon Iver haze.”


NEEDTOBREATHE started to tease fans with new music last week by releasing one new song a day via USA Today, Yahoo, HitFix and Team Coco. Check out the tracks below and stay tuned for more music on Paste and American Songwriter later this week.


In addition to making their Grand Ole Opry debut on April 19th, NEEDTOBREATHE will kick off a North American headlining tour on May 1st that will see them visit some of the country’s most notable venues and perform at summer festivals such as the Hangout Music Festival andSuburbia Music Festival. Tour dates below, and additional dates to be announced soon!


Rivers In the Wasteland is the follow up to the band’s celebrated album The Reckoning, a collection of timeless American rock and roll that caught the attention of many including NPR, Elle, USA Today and The New York Times who simply said this 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.”
