South Carolina-based NeedToBreathe will play the Arkansas Music Pavilion in Fayetteville on Oct. 7.

Until yesterday, there were four remaining shows on the 2011 Arkansas Music Pavilion lineup. Now there are five.

The Walton Arts Center on Monday announced that southern rockers NeedToBreathe will play the AMP in Fayetteville on Oct. 7.

The band’s fourth studio album, The Reckoning, hits stores in September.
