NEEDTOBREATHE continues its steady ascent up the rock-world ladder with its most recent release, Rivers in the Wasteland. The band’s fifth full-length album not only received rave reviews from several notable music critics, but also peaked at the number one spot on both Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Christian Album charts. The three band members all hail from South Carolina and play Southern rock music with Christian undertones and messages. Reviewer John DiBiase for the Christian music web site Jesus Freak Hideout called the 11-track album, which sold 49,000 copies in its first week, a “refreshing listening experience.”
Their tour, which began in April, will span 47 cities across the United States and in Canada until it wraps up in September (See the tour dates). Be sure to check out NEEDTOBREATHE’s new album today.
