Atlantic recording group NEEDTOBREATHE has unveiled another round of dates for their upcoming U.S. tour, “Young and Far From Home.”  The band had previously announced the cross-country trek’s October 27th kick-off at the Township Auditorium in Columbia, SC.  The new round of announced dates continue into November, with more dates still to be announced.  The Daylights will be supporting as special guest on all dates.

“Young and Far From Home” will be the final tour to support NEEDTOBREATHE’s current album, “THE OUTSIDERS,” following the band’s highly successful headlining runs – this past spring’s “Won’t Turn Back Tour” and last year’s “The Outsiders Live” – both of which sold out in nearly every market visited.  The latest round of dates (see attached itinerary) will go on sale to the public on Friday, September 17th, with even more dates being announced shortly.   Presale tickets for the newly announced dates will be available to The Insiders, the official NEEDTOBREATHE Fan Club, beginning Wednesday, September 15th.  In addition to access to tickets before the general public, members of The Insiders are also invited to exclusive meet and greets with the band and an early opportunity to purchase special limited edition tour packages.  For more information about “Young and Far From Home” presale tickets or how to join The Insiders, please visit

NEEDTOBREATHE’s third and most recent album, “THE OUTSIDERS,” was released late last summer to universal critical acclaim and a top 20 debut on the Billboard 200.   Known for their incredible live shows, NEEDTOBREATHE recently performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival and appeared on the cover of Pollstar magazine.   Before the kick-off of “Young and Far From Home,” the band will wrap up their run of support dates with Train and embark on their first-ever European tour.  With tickets already selling fast, the band will be performing 10 shows in 5 different countries in less than 2 weeks.  For a complete list of tour dates, please visit

NEEDTOBREATHE is Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar, piano), Bo Rinehart (guitar, backing vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, backing vocals), and Joe Stillwell (drums, backing vocals).

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
