Atlantic recording group NEEDTOBREATHE has announced details of their upcoming U.S. tour, “Young and Far From Home.”  The cross-country trek will kick off with a home-state show on October 27th at the Township Auditorium in Columbia, SC, and continue into December.  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 first round of dates (see attached itinerary) will go on sale to the public as early as Friday, July 30th, with more dates being announced shortly.   Presale tickets for “Young and Far From Home” will be available to The Insiders, the official NEEDTOBREATHE Fan Club, beginning Wednesday, July 28th.  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

Known for their incredible live shows, NEEDTOBREATHE recently performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival and appeared on the cover of Pollstar magazine.   The band’s relentless touring schedule includes upcoming performances at a number of summer festivals, support dates with Train, and their first European tour before the kick off of “Young and Far From Home.”  For a complete list of tour dates, 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.   Their current single, “Something Beautiful,” continues to climb the Hot AC radio chart and has been featured in a number of television shows, including the ABC hit series “Cougar Town,” televised promo spots and commercials as well as the soundtrack to the feature film, “When In Rome.”  USA TODAY heralded the song for its “…choruses that soar.”

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