The acclaimed band, NEEDTOBREATHE, renowned for their groundbreaking music spanning 20 years, is currently in the studio working on their latest album with renewed vigor.

Their signature style of seamlessly blending modern rock, soul, and pop has placed them amongst the few accomplished artists in the industry.

Originating in South Carolina in 2001, NEEDTOBREATHE has undergone numerous changes and transformations, ultimately establishing themselves as a distinctive and unparalleled presence in today’s music industry. Their groundbreaking efforts have earned them five chart-topping albums, dominating various Billboard charts, including Rock and Alternative.

Ask their fans and it’s been two decades of spirit-mining songs, master musicianship and elemental artistry, digging deep to create a series of sonic monuments to the human condition. Yet for all they’ve built, the five-piece group remains a veiled figure in the shadowed fringe of modern rock to some – so on their ninth studio album, “CAVES”, they’re coming out into the light. “CAVES” 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.
