NEEDTOBREATHE preps for 'Tour De Compadres 2016'

GRAMMY Award®-nominated 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 15.

H A R D L O V E  is now available for pre-order, with all purchases accompanied by instant grat downloads of the lead single, “Happiness” as well as the album track “Money & Fame.” Exclusive album pre-order bundles that also include limited-edition merchandise will be available at the band’s Official Online Store. “Happiness” is available on all streaming services and DSPs along with “Money & Fame” and  is currently impacting Christian radio.


“The song ‘Happiness is really about the sacrifices we have to make in order to change,” lead singer Bear Rinehart said of the single. “I think that everyone who has had to make a major decision in their life knows that change is only worth it when you make the change for the right reason. Happiness after all is clearly a fleeting thing, but purpose is what brings real joy. I believe that there’s no better place in the world than the middle of the will of God for your life. I hope that the song ‘Happiness’ makes you feel that way.”

The ten-time Dove Award winners will celebrate H A R D L O V E with “Tour De Compadres 2016,” an epic US headline run kicking off August 17 at Raleigh, NC’s Red Hat Amphitheater and then traveling through a November 12 finale at Lynchburg, VA’s Liberty University.  NEEDTOBREATHE will bring along some of their closest musical friends as support, including special guests Mat Kearney, John Mark McMillan (Leg 1 only), Parachute (Leg 2 only), and Welshly Arms.

Highlights of the tour include a massive hometown concert at Charleston, SC’s 10,000+ capacity Volvo Car Stadium on August 19 as well as performances at such legendary venues as Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre (September 10), Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (September 15), Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom (October 30), and New York City’s Beacon Theatre (November 2).
