REMEMBER TO BREATHE - BIGS SPORTS BAR 2015

Starting in 2010 as an acoustic project for singer/songwriter Adel Toay, REMEMBER TO BREATHE has grown to be a reminder of why people still cling to the late 90’s/early 2000’s brand of Pop-Punk. REMEMBER TO BREATHE's discography clearly represents their influences of Blink-182, Yellowcard, All Time Low and Jimmy Eat World adding a variety of 2000’s Pop-punk’s distinct sound to the nostalgia of the late 90’s emo surge.

REMEMBER TO BREATHE started as a one person sad song songwriting hail to Dashboard Confessional. After songwriting changes and with the help of friends RTB released its first record. Adding bass and drums with a pop-punk influence ‘Lost In Neverland’ was released Feb. 14th 2013

After a year break for college, Adel quickly started looking for musicians motivated to restart the band. Bassist Donny Minor joined the band late 2014 adding spirited vocals and a pop-punk influence the band needed. Writing soon began for a comeback EP and throughout the process guitarist Alex Gerig was recruited through craigslist. Donny’s roommate Zane Lodmell to stepped up to make the line-up complete. This line-up would go on to release ‘Recovery’ on October 31st 2015 adding a more indie and layered direction for the band.

2016 started off without guitarist Alex due to him focusing on school. RTB kept the momentum up and recruited another lead guitarist through Craiglist. Daryl Bruinsma joined adding a sweet twist to how RTB would write lead guitar. Work quickly began for a full-length record and it was announced in May that the record would be released through Sioux Falls’ very own Loud, Broke, and Dumb Records.

The band played a multitude of shows setting personal records throughout the early part of 2016. In October the band released a song off of the new record on the podcast ‘Bump Underground’. ‘Define You’ was released on October 3rd along with the announcement of the band’s debut record ‘Lessons On Getting Out & Growing Up’ release date of October 28th through Loud, Broke, and Dumb Records. LOGOGU was released setting in stone the band’s influence of late 90’s/early 2000’s brand of Pop-Punk. 

"Remember to Breathe’s debut full length Lessons On Getting Out & Growing Up accurately captures all of the familiar sounds and themes of the late 90’s/early 2000’s pop punk bands." - Northbound Midwest Music Collective Album Review

A video for ‘Define You’ was released shortly after directed and shot by Daryl Bruinsma who left the band to focus on video work. 

In May of 2017 RTB joined the Word is Bond Inc. family with Erick Droegmoeller becoming their manager. RTB is currently writing a new EP and are soon announcing tours for the fall.
