NeedToBreathe Driving All Night Over U.S

Once NeedToBreathe wraps up its six-month support stint with Taylor Swift the rock band will return to stages across the U.S. in early 2012 for a major headline tour of its own.

The rock band will have plenty of new material on its setlist thanks to the September release of the group’s fourth album, The Reckoning.    

Tonight NeedToBreathe will open for Swift in Charlotte, N.C., at Time Warner Cable Arena. The remaining support dates include shows in Raleigh, N.C. (Nov. 17); Columbia, S.C. (Nov. 18); and New York (Nov. 21-22). The group has also squeezed in a 2011 headline date – Nov. 19 in Charlottesville, Va., at Jefferson Theater.
