NEEDTOBREATHE: INTO THE MYSTERY
Documentary Intimately Captures the Band Recording Their Latest Album While Isolated During the Pandemic
NEEDTOBREATHE’s new album landed the band on the top 10 of the Billboard Top Rock Albums charts for the 7th time and the Billboard Top 10 Current Sales charts
NEEDTOBREATHE: INTO THE MYSTERY chronicles the unique recording of NEEDTOBREATHE’s latest album Into the Mystery, which was released by Elektra Records on July 30. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and without telling a soul, the band decamped to a historic house-turned-recording studio in remote Tennessee to work on new music. Over three weeks, they resided under one roof and handcrafted an album reflective of the turbulent moment that may contain the most important music of the band’s storied career. NEEDTOBREATHE: INTO THE MYSTERY offers a rare look at the collaboration of artists at the height of their creative powers who are struggling with the same fear and isolation that has affected everyone the last 16 months.
“We’re big fans of music documentaries where you get to actually watch the artist creating in the space where the record is made,” said NEEDTOBREATHE. “Getting to see an idea stretch and grow into a finished song is really inspiring, but we’ve never really let our fans see behind the curtain. Now people will get to pull up a chair and become a part of the process as we create our eighth studio album in an old house in the hills of Tennessee.”
Since 1998, NEEDTOBREATHE have quietly emerged as a dynamic force in rock music, topping the charts, selling out historic venues, garnering GRAMMY® nominations, and generating over 2 million album sales and over 2 billion streams to date. Their latest album Into The Mystery will be released by Elektra Records on July 30.

Since 1998, NEEDTOBREATHE have quietly emerged as a dynamic force in rock music, topping the charts, selling out historic venues, and generating hundreds of millions of streams to date. The band have gathered one platinum single, four gold singles, and a gold album. Along the way, “Multiplied” notched their first GRAMMY® nomination. Simultaneously, they performed to sold out crowds at arenas and amphitheaters coast to coast. In addition to garnering two nods at the Billboard Music Awards, they’ve attracted acclaim from People, Rolling Stone, Forbes, and many more. In 2020, they sowed the seeds for rebirth with Out of Body. It bowed in the Top 5 of three Billboard charts and reeled in acclaim. Within weeks of its release, the quintet—Bear Rinehart [vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt [bass, vocals], Josh Lovelace [keys, vocals], Randall Harris [drums], and Tyler Burkum [guitar]—stole away to an old historic house in Columbia, TN where they lived together, ate together, laughed together, and recorded together for three weeks in the fall of 2020. They returned home with their eighth album and documentary Into The Mystery [Elektra Records]. It’s the kind of record that could only be made by a band who has been through it all and still has enough faith to keep encouraging one another. It’s NEEDTOBREATHE.
