Goldenvoice & Nederlander Concerts Present
“TOUR DE COMPADRES 2016”
Featuring Mat Kearney, John Mark McMillan and Welshly Arms
Atlantic recording group NEEDTOBREATHE has announced early details of their forthcoming new album. “H A R D L O V E” arrives everywhere on July 15th.
“H A R D L O V E” will be available for pre-order beginning immediately, with all pre-orders accompanied by instant grat downloads of the album’s lead single, “HAPPINESS” as well as “MONEY & FAME.” “HAPPINESS” – streaming now on Spotify and Apple Music – impacts Hot AC radio outlets in early May.
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 will celebrate “H A R D L O V E” with “TOUR DE COMPADRES 2016,” an epic US headline run with a stop at the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on September 10. The second annual “TOUR DE COMPADRES” sees NEEDTOBREATHE bringing along some of their closest musical friends as support, including special guests Mat Kearney, John Mark McMillan, and Welshly Arms. Presale ticketing for “The Insiders” – the official NEEDTOBREATHE fan club – begins April 4th followed by an additional presale for mailing list members and Facebook Event followers on April 11th; all remaining tickets will then be released to the general public on April 15th.

Co-produced by NEEDTOBREATHE and recorded at their very own Plantation Studios in Charleston, SC, “H A R D L O V E” follows the band’s blockbuster album “Rivers In the Wasteland,” which made a stunning chart debut upon its 2014 release, topping Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” and “Top Alternative Albums” charts while also entering the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #3. What’s more, the album’s stunning “Multiplied” earned NEEDTOBREATHE their first ever GRAMMY® Award nomination.
The album’s breakout single, “Brother (Feat. Gavin DeGraw),” proved to be the highest charting single of their career. The RIAA-certified Gold hit song became a Top 10 rock smash, Top 20 CHR/Hot AC favorite, as well as NEEDTOBREATHE’s first-ever entry on Billboard’s “Hot 100.” The track’s companion video – directed by independent filmmaker Jared Hogan – has drawn close to 10 million views at NEEDTOBREATHE’s official YouTube channel. In addition, NEEDTOBREATHE and DeGraw rocked New York City’s Times Square with an unforgettable performance of “Brother,” live on ABC’s Good Morning America.
NEEDTOBREATHE premiered “TOUR DE COMPADRES” in summer 2015, visiting over 40 US markets accompanied by special guests Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and Colony House. The aptly named tour was a massive popular and commercial success, with highlights including a sold out date at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, captured exclusively by TIDAL in the just-released mini-documentary, “NEEDTOBREATHE LIVE AT RED ROCKS.”
