Christian Music News, New Christian Music News NEEDTOBREATHE and Atlantic/Word Records are thrilled to announce that the band's new album Rivers In the Wasteland has debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Christian Albums Chart. Released last week, Rivers went straight to No. 1 on the iTunes® chart and stayed in the Top 10 all week.
 
The band performed new single "The Heart" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last Friday, a song the UK's Clash Magazine spotlights as "strident, anthemic songwriting" that "matches Southern rock to gilded Americana with the trio's voices gathered in rapture."

NEEDTOBREATHE returned to The Late Show with David Letterman on April 23rd for a performance of "The Heart," joined by the legendary Paul Shaffer. Watch the performance here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY0mgqK154U

Rivers In the Wasteland impressed fans and critics alike last week following its release. NewReleaseTuesday.com said, "You'll be hooked right from the opening notes..." while JesusFreakHideout.com praised a "welcome return for the South Carolina boys, and already one of the best releases of 2014."
 
The band's North American headlining that kicks off May 1 has been extended for another two months. The additional leg sees the band performing in Austin, New York, Philadelphia and Boston. See the full list of dates below.
