Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats to team up with Lukas Nelson & POTR for May 12 bash in Louisville

NEW YORK, NY (Jan. 17, 2018) – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will take their celebrated live show on the road this spring and summer with an extensive run of North American dates that include a stop at Louisville’s Iroquois Amphitheater on May 12 with Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. Tickets for the dates are on sale Friday, Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. local time and can be purchased at

The tour will support the band’s highly anticipated new album, “Tearing at the Seams,” out March 9 on Stax Records. Additionally, “You Worry Me,” the lead single off “Tearing at the Seams,” is out now. The album is available for pre-order.

Initial writing and recording sessions for “Tearing at the Seams” took place in Rodeo, NM, where Rateliff & The Night Sweats re-established their dynamic off the stage and in the studio.

“For the first record I demo’ed everything up and created most of the parts,” says Rateliff. “This time, I felt like we’ve all spent so much time on the road that we should all go off somewhere together. We should all have that experience together.”

The band finished recording with producer Richard Swift—who has helmed records for The Shins and Foxygen in addition to The Night Sweats’ debut—collectively creating a group of songs that capture the band’s emotion and intensity.

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

The band continues to make an immediate and lasting impression on late night television with performances on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” (twice), “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “CONAN,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” as well as on PBS’ “Austin City Limits” and “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Last year, the band released their first-ever full-length concert recording, “Live at Red Rocks,” featuring the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Their 2015 debut album is now certified Gold in the U.S., Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands, Platinum in Canada and Silver in the U.K. while their hit single “S.O.B.” is certified Platinum in the U.S. and Canada and Gold in Switzerland.
