Carolina natives NEEDTOBREATHE have a solid 10+ years creating and performing music, and their great songwriting and musical ability was on full display Friday. The band set off on a tour that stopped at The Anthem, and their six studio albums and years of performing were evident in the polished performance they delivered.
Needtobreathe, often stylized NEEDTOBREATHE, have been busy lately! In July, they released an EP, Forever on Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions), and on Nov. 16, the band will release Acoustic Live Vol. 1, a live album, via Atlantic Records. In the meantime, they will soon tour with a show at The Anthem on Friday, Aug. 17.
Needtobreathe passionately played an electric and eclectic set at 9:30 Club in a sold-out show Thursday, Oct. 5, in a long show that thrilled their audience and strengthened the bond between the performers and their fans.
Switchfoot, eponymous surfers, comes to the Filene Center at Wolf Trap on Tuesday, August 11.
They are among three bands opening for NEEDTOBREATHE. The other openers are Colony House and Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.
Switchfoot, hailing from San Diego, achieved fame with their 2003 single “Meant to Live”. Largely marketed as a Christian rock band early in their career, they have released nine full-length albums to date. Their most recent is 2014’s album, Fading West.
Formed in 1996, Switchfoot’s name comes from the act of a surfer switching their feet to change directions.
Their other major hit, “Dare You to Move”, was featured in the film, A Walk to Remember.
Jon Foreman (lead vocals) also has a solo project coming out this year, called The Wonderlands. It consists of four EPs, titled Sunlight, Shadows, Darkness and Dawn respectively and each released throughout the year. Sunlight and Shadows have already been released and are available for purchase.
