NEEDTOBREATHE is a GRAMMY-nominated, American Rock ‘n' Roll Band from South Carolina, effortlessly woven from the musical traditions of their upbringing in the Deep South of the United States. 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/Lava/Word Records and quickly achieved cross-genre success via five studio albums and innumerable headline tours. NEEDTOBREATHE has received wide ranging attention from the national media, highlighted by performances on such high profile TV outlets as ABC's Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live, TBS' Conan, NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and CBS This Morning, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Highlighted by the lead single "HAPPINESS," their much anticipated new album “H A R D L O V E" released on July 15, 2016. "H A R D L O V E" is the follow-up to 2014’s "Rivers In the Wasteland," which debuted at #1 on both Billboard’s "Top Rock Albums" and "Top Alternative Albums" charts, and #3 overall on the Billboard 200. The album also spawned the RIAA-certified Gold single "Brother (feat. Gavin DeGraw)" and earned the group their first GRAMMY nomination as well as a pair of Billboard Music Award nominations. To support "H A R D L O V E," NEEDTOBREATHE will embark on their "Tour de Compadres 2016" – an extensive, headlining tour hitting arenas, amphitheaters, and stadiums in over 50 cities across the U.S.
