Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are set to tour through the fall of 2019, with new dates featuring very special guest Lucius. The band and Lucius, who team up for the songs “Coolin’ Out ” and “Babe I Know,” will make stops in Phoenix, Santa Barbara, Las Vegas, Boise, Vancouver and more.

The new shows follow previously announced dates with Florence + The Machine as well as festival appearances at BottleRock Napa Valley, Outlaw Music Festival, Levitate Music Festival, Under the Big Sky Festival, Calgary Folk Festival, Pickathon, Bourbon & Beyond, Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and Ohana Fest. The band will also return to Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 21 and 22 after having sold out the legendary venue five times in the past three years. See below for more tour details.

Additionally, the band will continue their special Eat & Greet VIP pre-party before the show on select dates. Fans can enjoy fresh, local food grown in each area by family farmers, with complimentary bar and early entry access to a VIP area. All proceeds benefit The Marigold Project, Rateliff’s foundation dedicated to economic and social justice.

The band’s latest album, Tearing at the Seams, was released last year on Stax Records to widespread acclaim. The band was the #1 Most Played Artist at Triple A radio, “You Worry Me” was the #1 Most Played Song of the Year, “A Little Honey” was #8 and the band was the only artist with two songs in the year-end Top 10 Most Played Songs list. Most recently, “Hey Mama” went #1 marking an extremely rare occurrence for three singles to hit #1 at Triple A. At Americana Radio, Tearing at the Seams was the #1 Most Played Album and spent 20 weeks #1 on the Albums chart, while “You Worry Me” was the #1 Most Played Song and spent 15 weeks #1 on the Singles chart. It was replaced by “A Little Honey,” which was the #2 Most Played Song and spent 8 weeks #1 while “Hey Mama” was #32 Most Played Song of the year and spent 3 weeks #1. At Alternative’s Top 50 Most Played Songs of The Year, “You Worry Me” came in at #5.

The group kicked off the past year with a performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” followed by appearances on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (twice), “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and PBS’ “NewsHour,” as well as the 100th episode of “NCIS: New Orleans.” The band was also nominated for “Duo/Group of the Year” at the 2018 Americana Awards.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are: Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph Pope III (bass), Patrick Meese (drums), Luke Mossman (guitar), Shusterman (keys), Andreas Wild (saxophone), Scott Frock (trumpet) and Jeff Dazey (saxophone).


“Possessing the machismo of a young Springsteen, lead singer Rateliff’s vocal style texturally spans from the new wave croon of Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring to the fervent gospel shouting of Sam & Dave. The band’s horn section and their frequent nods to classic strains of gospel, rock and soul mean they’re doing genre-less work that isn’t too derivative of or reliant upon any one influence.” –Rolling Stone

“Some musicians are content to entertain an audience, others seek to illuminate issues or themes close to their hearts, and some are in it chiefly for fame and/or fortune. A precious few see music as a way to channel and disseminate nothing less than a life force through music, a mission that appears to be the raison d’être of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.” –Los Angeles Times

“Rateliff's passionate voice and honest songs are the heart of the record. His gospel-style vocals are tucked into the band, but when the lyrics jump out, they offer up little pearls of wisdom.” –NPR Music

Cover story for the October/November 2018 issue
“Rateliff & The Night Sweats consistently prove that they’re well up to the task before them, that is, to preserve the classic-soul style that their storied label has always embodied. It’s little wonder then that Tearing at the Seams is so potent and profound.” –Relix

Tearing at the Seams, a soulful, bluesy venture that taps into all the elements that made their debut album successful.” –Esquire

“His patience and persistence has paid off with a diverse and complete collection of song that, whether acoustic or full-on blue rockers, firmly establish Rateliff and his band mates as true ambassadors of the best of American music.” –Forbes

“The 12-track swells with soulful brass, infectious grooves, and Rateliff’s unmistakable warble.” –Entertainment Weekly
