NEEDTOBREATHE The ReckoningWe’ve got two new tunes for you this week from NEEDTOBREATHE’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album, The Reckoning (Atlantic/Word), releasing September 20. The band is currently opening for Taylor Swift on the “Speak Now Tour” and playing what they are dubbing “secret shows” in smaller venues across the country where they are debuting new music. They are only announcing the secret shows last minute via Facebook and Twitter, so keep an eye on their posts and tweets to see if they will be playing a secret show in your area!

In a recent blog post, drummer Joe Stillwell wrote, “As we’re wrapping up our preparations to release The Reckoning, it amazes me to look back at all the months of work that yielded the final results. I’m so grateful that even though being in a band isn’t always a career with immediate results and feedback, we have the privilege of creating something lasting that takes on a life of its own and repays us far beyond the time and effort we give it. It’s a beautiful thing.”
