Nashville, TN – August 31, 2023 – Today, GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum rock band NEEDTOBREATHE is excited to release two of the most anticipated singles from their new album CAVES––”Wasting Time” featuring country hitmakers Old Dominion and “Temporary Tears” featuring acclaimed Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance

Wasting Time” was one of the first songs written for the band’s new album CAVES. “We wanted to have a fun rock song that would be exciting for the band to play live. We also love the energy our friends in Old Dominion bring to their shows and thought teaming up together on this one would take the song over the top,” the band comments, “It ended up being one of our favorite tracks on the record and will be a staple in our live show for a long time.” “‘Wasting Time’ has all the elements that made me fall in love with NEEDTOBREATHE years and years ago,” says Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey, “They were always inspiring to me as a band, and getting to work with them on this song has shown me they are equally as inspiring as humans. Good people making good music. What a dream!” 

For album closer “Temporary Tears,” the band tapped singer-songwriter and long-time friend Foy Vance. “We have been friends with Foy Vance for almost a decade now and believe he’s one of the greatest singers alive,” NEEDTOBREATHE comments, “It felt meant to be to have Foy sing on it with us. To hear him and Bear sing together is an extremely special thing.” “I met NEEDTOBREATHE when they had just released Rivers in the Wasteland,” Foy Vance explains, “As it happened I was traversing a wasteland of sorts at that time in my life and, not to put too fine a point on it, they were a river running through it. They took me in and treated me as one of their own and we’re remained close ever since. It is a genuine joy to be on this song with them.” 

Fans can listen to “Wasting Time” (feat. Old Dominion) and to “Temporary Tears” (feat. Foy Vance) today HERE.

CAVES is a collection of awe-inspiring melodies, breathtaking instrumentation and epic-scale energy, giving the band’s soul-probing approach a bigger, more expansive new scope––one that American Songwriter writes is “brimming with anthemic, arena-worthy sounds” and has “larger-than-life productions.” To pre-order or pre-save CAVES, click HERE.

In addition to Old Dominion and Foy Vance, the album features special guests Carly Pearce and alternative rock band Judah & The Lion, who will be touring with NEEDTOBREATHE this fall. Tickets are on sale now HERE.

CAVES was written in two post-pandemic phases – first during their aforementioned getaway in Utah, where the group was finally able to get together again, and then again after they returned to the road, re-acclimating to massive crowds alongside OneRepublic. The making of the album was captured in a two-part documentary “A World Without A Mirror: The Making of CAVES”. To watch part one, click HERE.

Despite a 20-year history that includes all the accolades of an iconic band, GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum band NEEDTOBREATHE came into their latest studio album with a much different frame of mind. They still felt they had something to prove. In truth, this is a band who have loomed large for years, leveraging a unique fusion of modern rock, purpose-driven soul and irresistible pop appeal into a stat line which puts them in exceedingly rare company. Formed in South Carolina in 2001, NEEDTOBREATHE has grown and evolved to occupy a unique position in the modern genre landscape. They’ve placed five Number One albums all across the Billboard chart spectrum, from Rock and Alternative. They’ve racked up two billion career streams and scored multi-platinum chart topping hits – deep-feeling anthems with a spiritual conscious like “Brother” (feat. Gavin DeGraw), “Who Am I,” “Let’s Stay Home Tonight” and dozens more. And they’ve done it all while filling venues across the globe, either as headliners or with a diverse array of superstars like Taylor Swift, OneRepublic and Tim McGraw. Ask their fans and it’s been two decades of spirit-mining songs, master musicianship and elemental artistry, digging deep to create a series of sonic monuments to the human condition. Yet for all they’ve built, the five-piece group remains a bury figure in the shadowed fringe of modern rock to some – so on their ninth studio album, CAVES, they’re coming out into the light. DueSeptember 15, CAVES is a collection of awe-inspiring melodies, breathtaking instrumentation and epic-scale energy, giving the band’s soul-probing approach a bigger, more expansive new scope.
