NEEDTOBREATHE Stream “Brother”


Before today, nine of the eleven songs from NEEDTOBREATHE‘s upcoming album Rivers In The Wasteland had found their way online through various premieres and video releases. This morning, track ten came online, and once again we’re blown away by North Carolina’s most exciting rock band.

We have written at length about NEEDTOBREATHE’s desire to return to a more organic, acoustic-driven sound with Rivers, and that is once again what we find on the new song “Brother.” It seems the process of making the new album caused the members of NEEDTOBREATHE to reevaluate their relationship to one another, and the results of that deliberation are riddled throughout the song found at the end of this post.

Speaking with Paste Magazine about “Brother,” vocalist Bo Rinehart offered:

“This song represents a completely different way of looking at each other in this band. Somehow along the way we had talked ourselves into believing that being competitive with each other was a good thing. It really was every man for himself. The band had to go through a pretty tough time to realize how much we needed each other, but we came out the other side with an appreciation that only brothers can have. We want our first instinct from now on to be to stick up for each other.”
