Need to Breathe album news

I can't wait to hear the new album. Their last was in my top 10 of the year. My interview can be found elsewhere on the blog.

Charleston, SC rock band NEEDTOBREATHE are gearing up for the release of their new album The Reckoning, out Sept. 20 on Atlantic Records.

The follow up to the band's acclaimed album The Outsiders, which debuted in the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200, The Reckoning is a confident and fresh-sounding collection from a band coming into its own as a world class rock 'n' roll outfit.

After two years of non-stop touring, NEEDTOBREATHE went straight into the studio to create The Reckoning - an album centered on the songwriting talents of Bear and Bo Rinehart. Inspired by the dynamics they had developed on the road, the band was determined to capture their on-stage energy and exhilarating live performances, along with their experimental recording ideas, on record.

"We wanted to make a record where we pretty much tried everything" says Bear. "We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to create something that would define us."

With the arena-ready "Drive All Night," the swagger of "White Fences" and its epic title track, The Reckoning fulfills on the promise of the band's first three albums, offering a powerful and memorable sound that defines the band's ambitions clearly and makes NEEDTOBREATHE one of the most exciting bands to watch.
