GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum rock band NEEDTOBREATHE will step in to headline the Moon River Music Festival this Saturday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in place of folk trio CAAMP. With “some of the best vocal performances, instrumentation, and stage presence,” (Toronto Star) the band will close out the first night of the eighth annual festival. Additionally, frontman Bear Rinehart will pull double duty performing solo as Wilder Woods the following night. For more info, click here.
The band’s forthcoming album CAVES, releasing September 15, is a collection of awe-inspiring melodies, breathtaking instrumentation, and epic-scale energy, giving the band’s soul-probing approach a bigger, more expansive new scope–one that American Songwriter writes is “brimming with anthemic, arena-worthy sounds” and has “larger-than-life productions.” To pre-order or pre-save CAVES, click here.
Last week, the band released two of the most anticipated singles from their new album CAVES–“Wasting Time” featuring country hitmakers Old Dominion and “Temporary Tears” featuring acclaimed Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance, listen here. In addition to Old Dominion and Foy Vance, the album features special guests Carly Pearce and alternative rock band Judah & The Lion, who will be touring with NEEDTOBREATHE this fall. Tickets are on sale now here.
CAVES was written in two post-pandemic phases–first during their aforementioned getaway in Utah, where the group was finally able to get together again, and then again after they returned to the road, re-acclimating to massive crowds alongside OneRepublic. The making of the album was captured in a two-part documentary, A World Without A Mirror: The Making of CAVES. To watch part one, click here.
