NEEDTOBREATHE "Won't Turn Back" With Upcoming US Tour; South Carolina Rockers Offer Exclusive Pre-Sale Ticket Package; Two New Singles Due to Impact Later This Month

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 7, 2010) - Atlantic recording group NEEDTOBREATHE has announced details of its upcoming U.S. tour. The "Won't Turn Back Tour" is set to hit the road on March 3rd at the Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with dates continuing through mid-May (see below itinerary). Support comes from a wide range of like-minded artists, including Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, Will Hoge, Graham Colton, Seabird, and Atlantic labelmate Matt Hires.

The South Carolina-based rock outfit's biggest trek to date, the "Won't Turn Back Tour" follows last year's successful headline tour -- dubbed "The Outsiders Live" -- which included sold-out shows in virtually every market visited, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Dallas, Minneapolis, Nashville, and Atlanta among others.

Tickets for dates running through April 24th will go on sale to the public on Friday, January 8th. That same day will also see pre-sale tickets made available for shows beginning April 27th and running through the tour's May 15th finale. In light of so many dates selling out last tour, pre-sale tickets for the "Won't Turn Back Tour" are a premium in itself. A second pre-sale option is "The Insiders" Fan Club Welcome Package, which includes a General Admission ticket, one-year membership in "The Insiders" (the official NEEDTOBREATHE Fan Club, set to launch later this month), access to a pre-show Meet & Greet with the band, and limited edition T-shirts and Commemorative Laminates exclusive to Fan Club members. All remaining tickets for dates between April 27th and May 15th will then go on sale to the public on January 29th. For further details, please visit or

The "Won't Turn Back Tour" celebrates NEEDTOBREATHE's third album, "THE OUTSIDERS," which was released last summer to universal critical acclaim and a top 20 debut on the Billboard 200. Two singles are currently set for impact on January 25th, with "Hurricane" going to Modern Rock and "The Outsiders" hitting Triple A radio outlets nationwide. What's more, a companion video clip for "Hurricane" is now in post-production, with a premiere date to be announced soon.
