South Carolina rock band NEEDTOBREATHE released a brand new collection, Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions), this week. Forever On Your Side was recorded with the producer trio Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges) out of their studio in Ft. Worth, TX. The 4-track collection of songs and collaboration represents a creative leap for the band, who usually self-records and produces out of their home studio, Plantation Studios, in Summerville, SC. The title track was the last of the new songs to be released.
“When we wrote the song ‘Forever On Your Side,’ we were thinking of our fans who have been with us since the very beginning,” NEEDTOBREATHE explained when speaking about the meaning of the song. “There are certain songs over the years we’ve been able to envision playing live on tour before we even officially record the first note. This song is kind of full circle for us and brings back a lot of the sounds people might have heard from us early on. So in many ways, this song is for the fans who have been on our side since the beginning. AND you might hear some familiar voices! That’s right people! Our friends JOHNNYSWIM leant their absolutely mind-blowing harmonies to this song and made it even more special to us.”
Coinciding with the release of new music, NEEDTOBREATHE will launch their 37-city Forever On Your Side Tour on August 10th. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will make stops across iconic amphitheater and theater venues across major markets in the U.S. including Philadelphia, Nashville, Portland and more, before wrapping Oct. 7 in Daniel Island, South Carolina.
