TEARING AT THE SEAMS RELEASED THIS YEAR TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL PRAISE

ON TOUR NOW

Last night Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats performed on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” for a second time this year. Watch/share the late night television debut of “Hey Mama” here: https://bit.ly/2E0iDj1

The song appears on the band’s new album, Tearing at the Seams, released on Stax Records in March to widespread acclaim. “You Worry Me” spent eight straight weeks at #1 on Triple A radio, 16 consecutive weeks at #1 on Americana and appeared in the Top 5 at Alternative, while “A Little Honey” is the band’s second consecutive #1 single at Triple A radio. Tearing at the Seams was featured in NPR Music’s list of their “40 Favorite Albums Of 2018 (So Far)” while “You Worry Me” was included in World Café’s “Heavy Rotation: The Songs We're Obsessed With Halfway Through 2018.”

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

After another wildly successful year of worldwide touring—including sold out performances at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, New York’s Apollo Theatre, two dates at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre as well as a headline show at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens—the group will play a New Year’s Eve show at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry and two annual holiday shows at Denver’s Ogden Theatre. See below for complete details.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are: Nathaniel 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).

TEARING AT THE SEAMS CONTINUES TO RECEIVE CRITICAL PRAISE:

“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

“The brawny beats, sultry horns, and funky organ might spark fond memories of the ‘60s glory days of Stax and other classic R&B labels, but there’s nothing retro or reverent about Rateliff’s electrifying performance.” –Mother Jones

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

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