"What is so neat about DPAC is it’s an equally perfect venue to see one of music’s legends as it is one of music’s rising stars,” says Bob Klaus, General Manager of DPAC. “NEEDTOBREATHE is one of our new favorites. In fact, almost the whole staff cheered when this show got confirmed. There is always a show in each city for an act that becomes the turning point, the place where everyone says ‘I remember seeing them there.’ For NEEDTOBREATHE, I hope this show at DPAC will be one that sets that mark forever.”

With their first three albums selling in the hundreds of thousands, they describe the inception of their most recent album, The Reckoning, as if “something bigger awaited them.” With their third album The Outsiders hitting No. 9 on the Billboard Rock Albums Chart and Top 20 on the Top 200, they sold out numerous venues across the country and have scored impressive placements in blockbuster films and primetime television shows. Front man Bear Rinehart explains what a decade on the road taught them to produce something meaningful in their next project.

Hailing from Possum Kingdom, S.C., the Rinehart brothers, Bear and Bo join bass player Seth Bolt in a determined effort to create a statement-making album recorded at their Plantation Studios in Charleston, S.C. In the end, the band surfaced with a timeless album rooted in classic American rock and roll. On The Reckoning, songs delve into broken dreams, statement pieces and taking chances. The New York Times hails NEEDTOBREATHE as a “gifted band” making Southern rock that “is beginning to reach for the far seats of the arena.”
