Following their incredibly successful UK acoustic tour in December, South Carolina-based rock-n-roll outfit NEEDTOBREATHE will kick off their UK tour in Belfast’s Mandela Hall on Thursday May 21.

Last year, NEEDTOBREATHE released their new album, Rivers In the Wasteland. The album, which peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200, was co-produced by the band with the help of various producers including Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket), Kevin Augunas (The Lumineers), Ed Cash and Jerrod Bettis (Adele).

NEEDTOBREATHE, composed of brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart, Seth Bolt and Josh Lovelace, have been touring relentlessly over the past couple of years, captivating music fans at festivals such as Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, along with standout performances on Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Fallon, Kimmel, Leno and Conan.

The band recently performed a spine-tingling rendition of ‘Washed By The Water’ at Nashville’s legendry Grand Ole Opry and their song ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ recently soundtracked Sky Sports’ summer and autumn advert series.
