To coincide with the tour announcement, 3-time Dove Award winning Group of the Year, NEEDTOBREATHE, has unveiled their brand new single "Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)". Entertainment Weekly premiered the track last week, calling the song "...full, anthemic, a little bit woodsy and alarmingly catchy."

"Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)" is available now as a digital seven-inch which also includes an exclusive, acoustic version of the song. "Brother (featuring Gavin DeGraw)" is the second single off of the band's latest album RIVERS IN THE WASTELAND, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard 200 upon its release last year.
