GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum US rock band NEEDTOBREATHE have today announced the European leg of ‘The CAVES World Tour.’ The September dates includes the South Carolina five-piece’s first UK shows in almost a decade.
Say NEEDTOBREATHE: “We’re beyond excited to finally be able to head back overseas to play some shows for our UK fans. Some of our favourite shows we’ve ever played have been across the pond so we can’t wait to feel that energy again. We’ve also released over three records of new music since we’ve been so it’s going to be awesome to play new songs and fan favourites, and hopefully bring some new fans into the family.”

NEEDTOBREATHE’s ninth studio album. 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––one that American Songwriter writes is “brimming with anthemic, arena-worthy sounds” and has “larger-than-life productions.” Watch the video for the singles “Dreams” Featuring Judah & The Lion here and “Everknown” here. Fans can purchase or stream the album here.
NEEDTOBREATHE has built a “massive live following” (Rolling Stone) with their unique fusion of modern rock, purpose driven-soul and undeniable mainstream appeal and developed a reputation for their energetic “southern groove” (New York Times). CAVES proves the band’s genre-defying appeal, featuring a wide array of special guests, including country hitmakers Carly Pearce and Old Dominion as well as Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance and alternative rock band and tourmates Judah & The Lion. The making of the album was captured in a two-part documentary “A World Without A Mirror: The Making of CAVES”. Watch part one HERE and part two HERE.
Despite a 20-year history that includes all the accolades of an iconic band, GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum band NEEDTOBREATHE came into their latest studio album with a much different frame of mind. They still felt they had something to prove. In truth, this is a band who have loomed large for years, leveraging a unique fusion of modern rock, purpose-driven soul and irresistible pop appeal into a stat line which puts them in exceedingly rare company. Formed in South Carolina in 2001, NEEDTOBREATHE has grown and evolved to occupy a unique position in the modern genre landscape. They’ve placed five Number One albums all across the Billboard chart spectrum, from Rock and Alternative. They’ve racked up two billion career streams and scored multi-platinum chart topping hits – deep-feeling anthems with a spiritual conscious like “Brother” (feat. Gavin DeGraw), “Who Am I,” “Let’s Stay Home Tonight” and dozens more. And they’ve done it all while filling venues across the globe, either as headliners or with a diverse array of superstars like Taylor Swift, OneRepublic and Tim McGraw.
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.
