You’ll have a lot of chances to experience Needtobreath’s “Tour De Compadres” outing in support of the band’s Rivers In The Wasteland album.  Needtobreathe’s first leg includes Ben Rector as main support while the summer leg brings you Switchfoot. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors and Colony House appear on all dates.

Arriving with today’s announcement is Needtobreathe’s new single, “Brother,” featuring Gavin DeGraw.  The second single from Rivers In The Wasteland is available as a digital seven-inch that also includes an exclusive, acoustic version of the song. 

By next week members of Needtobreathe will know if they’re Grammy winners.  The band received their first Grammy nom for “Multiplied,” which is competing with Francesca Battistelli, Crowder, Lecrae Featuring For King & Country, and MercyMe in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song category.
