GRAMMY® Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE scores their 5th No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums this week. Their latest release Into the Mystery debuts at #1 with the set earning 13,000 equivalent album units, with 9,000 in album sales, according to MRC Data. Here are the other albums that have reached the top position: The Reckoning (2011), Rivers in the Wasteland (2014), Hard Love (2016), and Out of the Body (2020).
"For us to be in a band this long, still enjoy it, and make what we believe is the best record NEEDTOBREATHE has ever made, it comes down to resiliency," the band shared. "We're still hungry. We're ready to take the next step. We also don't have passive fans. They are living their lives to these songs. They're resilient. We're pretty honored and proud to carry these songs into a world that's hurting right now. Maybe we could be a picture of hope that inspires someone else to keep going."
Into The Mystery is highlighted by current single "I Wanna Remember" featuring seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood. Last month, the band and Underwood delivered the television debut performance of the song at the 2021 "CMT Music Awards". Crowned as one of the most showstopping moments of the evening by both US Weekly, Vulture hailed it as a "powerful, predictably huge performance of their duet," and E! called it, "something fans will want to remember."
