Nashville, TN, March 3, 2015 — Atlantic/Word Entertainment recording group NEEDTOBREATHE has announced details of their first ever live album. NEEDTOBREATHE: LIVE FROM THE WOODS arrives everywhere on April 14th.
Recorded last September at Nashville’s The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel, NEEDTOBREATHE: LIVE FROM THE WOODS captures the GRAMMY® Award-nominated and 10-time Dove Award-winning rock band on stage and at their best, performing a full live set including such hits as “Washed By The Water,” “Something Beautiful,” “Keep Your Eyes Open” and “Multiplied” (see attached tracklisting below). The two-CD set will be available for pre-order beginning March 3rd, with all pre-orders receiving instant grat downloads of fan favorites “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” and “Difference Maker.”
NEEDTOBREATHE’s acclaimed new single, “Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw),” is set to impact Hot AC radio outlets nationwide in early April. In addition, the track’s companion video will have its world premiere March 6th exclusively via VH1.com, followed March 7th by its broadcast debut on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown (check local listings). “Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw)” was applauded by Entertainment Weekly as “full, anthemic, a little bit woodsy and alarmingly catchy,” adding “(frontman) Bear Rinehart’s sincerity is unmistakable in his vocals, and the bluegrass backing culminates in something sweetly rich.” “Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw)” – the original version of which can be found on NEEDTOBREATHE’s chart-topping RIVERS IN THE WASTELAND – jumped seven spots this week at Christian HOT AC/CHR to #14, while also gaining three spots at National Christian Audience chart where it landed at #24. The song had a strong week gaining support from 7 new stations including the WAY-FM Network and is available now on the iTunes Store and all DSPs.
NEEDTOBREATHE will celebrate their new single and live album with a festival appearance at Napa, California’s annual “Live At The Vineyard,” slated for March 27th. From there the band will embark on their first North American headlining tour of 2015, kicking off April 23rd at Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and then traveling through the summer (see attached itinerary). Dubbed “Tour De Compadres,” the aptly named trek sees NEEDTOBREATHE bringing out some of their best friends as support, with special guests including Ben Rector, Switchfoot, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and Colony House.
