Review: NEEDTOBREATHE – Rivers in the Wasteland

NeedtobreatheThe past three years have been difficult ones for South Carolina rockers NEEDTOBREATHE. For, despite their rising success and growing accolades, the toll of that success and life on the road began to weigh heavy, leading to the departure of longtime drummer, Joe Stillwell, in 2012. The pace continued and soon things became contentious between brothers and band co-founders Bear and Bo Rinehart as well, finding them hardly even speaking to each other, just trying to get through one gig to the next, let alone work on new music, leaving the future of the band in a tenuous place.

Yet, somewhere along the way, the Rinehart brothers found that some much needed space and time provided a place of grace and rest, allowing them to come together again with renewed vision and passion and on their latest, Rivers in the Wasteland, they mine those struggles for the shiny musical diamonds inside.

Now, with the release of Brave, McDonald is taking another step forward, this time into pop-flavored territory, and the result is well worth the listen.
