Atlantic Records is excited to announce NEEDTOBREATHE's new album The Reckoning debuted at #6 on this weeks Billboard Top 200. Released last Tuesday, this memorable collection of rock songs has been catching the attention of both critics and fans. Along with USA Today, Entertainment Weekly and more, The New York Times raves "this gifted band makes anthemic Southern rock that, on it's fourth album, The Reckoning, is beginning to reach for the far seats of the arena."

NEEDTOBREATHE recently played their song "Drive All Night" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Watch here: http://blog.vh1.com/2011-09-15/tuned-in-needtobreathe-have-drive-on-leno/

USA Today spotlighted Drive All Night as their "Pick Of The Week" and "more than just a search for a fresh start, it's an ode to the redemptive qualities of romance and a full tank of gas." Entertainment Weekly adds "Drive All Night is sharp enough to inspire both lighter waving and moonshine chugging" while The Washington Times raves "Drive All Night has the epic sweep of a Bruce Springsteen tune ... The Reckoning is rock 'n' roll music with a moral compass." The Salt Lake Tribune simply called The Reckoning "The best rock album of 2011 ... full of passionate anthems poised to fill arenas."

With their reputation as a must-see live act built from non-stop touring, Bear and Bo Rinehart, pastor's sons who hail from the rural South Carolina town of Possum Kingdom, along with drummer Joe Stillwell and bass player Seth Bolt, were determined to create a statement-making album that truly captured the magic behind this genuinely appealing rock band.

"We wanted to make an important record in the way that people used to make records. Bands rarely have the time that allows them to create a game-changing album like Born to Run, Rumours, or Damn The Torpedoes. So we said, 'Let's set ourselves up to do that. Let's believe in the songs enough that we're willing to take the time they need and really push ourselves. It may sound na´ve, but we still have a dream that we're going to make a record that's going to change everything for us."
