Watch: An exclusive look inside NEEDTOBREATHE's expansive new Tour de Compadres
AXS

After six albums and over a decade of performing, if there is one thing that NEEDTOBREATHE isn’t short on, it’s experience. The group’s work and output have led them to where they are today and to their new album, H A R D L O V E, which counts as arguably the band’s apogee. Buoyant and broad, the record lightly pads NEEDTOBREATHE’s sound with an electronic warmth that isn’t found on previous LPs, and it's probably the first NEEDTOBREATHE record that you can actually dance to.

Above all, H A R D L O V E is an album that seems crafted with touring ambitions in mind and, appropriately, the band announced their Tour De Compadres earlier this year. The second chapter in the Tour De Compadres saga, this new set of dates will take NEEDTOBREATHE through some of the country’s most storied and biggest venues. And true to the tour’s name, some of NEEDTOBREATHE’s friends are along for the ride, including Mat Kearney, Parachute, John Mark McMillan, and Welshly Arms. AXS caught up with Bear, Bo, Seth, and Josh during rehearsals for a glimpse at what the band has in store for their fans. Watch above.
