Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Rattle The Charts

Nathaniel Rateliff Featured on NPR’s All Things Considered Weekend

The self-titled debut album from Nathaniel Rateliff  & The Night Sweats sold more than 21,000 albums in its first week of release landing the Stax recording artists at #17 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart.

Fans and critics alike have enthusiastically embraced Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, both here and around the world. “Rateliff isn’t simply resurrecting the ghost of R&B past like some garden-variety neo-soul necromancer: He’s out to shake the sheets, sermonize and get downright elemental,” declared NPR Music.  The UK’s Q Magazine‘s4 STAR review proclaimed “As an album, it’s something of a revelation; the stunning sound of an artist being born again.” “So riveting, so spirited, so damn triumphant,” raved Glide Magazine, while The Guardian affirmed “The album is full of the ghosts of songwriting greats like Otis Redding, Chuck Berry and Van Morrison, and sounds like it should establish Rateliff as the breakneck bar brawler of the new soul movement.”

Ignited by their blistering, August 5th performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the impressive sales tally and chart debut underscores the remarkable rise the Denver, CO based band has enjoyed in recent weeks.

Garnering enormous support from SiriusXM, iHeartMedia, Alternative radio, Triple A, College, Non-Commercial and Americana stations nation-wide, lead single “S.O.B.” has become one of the fastest rising tracks in the country. Currently rooted as the #1 track on both Spotify’s U.S. and Global Viral Top 50 Charts, “S.O.B.” is resonating online as the #2 fastest “Shazaming” track in the nation as the official video for “S.O.B.” approaches 1 million views on YouTube.

The band is also gaining a reputation as a ‘can’t miss’ live act, as shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Iowa, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Nashville, New Orleans and Austin have all been moved to larger venues in order to accommodate the intense ticket demand. Indeed, Salt Lake, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Bellevue, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Chicago, Davenport, NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, DC, Carrboro, Asheville, Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Austin, OKC and Kansas City are all SOLD OUT.  Find the full fall tour schedule below.

Catch Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats as they return to late night television performing lead single “S.O.B.” on CONAN, September 15th.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ Highly Anticipated Self-titled Debut Album Out Today

NR&NS Cover_2030x2030

“He’s out to shake the sheets, sermonize and get downright elemental,” declared NPR of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ self-titled debut, available today, August 21st, 2015 via Stax Records. With a sold out, nation-wide tour that includes multiple shows upgraded to larger venues, the lead single “S.O.B.” flying to #1 on both Spotify’s U.S. and Global Viral Charts, heavy airplay across SiriusXM stations The Spectrum, AltNation and The Loft, and a combustible, game-changing late night television debut on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, momentum has been building to a fever pitch.

The Denver based rock ’n soul band’s profile is set to take another major leap as iHeartRadio names Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats their next On The Verge artist, a six-week program that includes on-air exposure as well as significant digital and social support across iHeartMedia’s network of alternative stations and websites.  The program is based on key tracks and artists that iHeartMedia’s programmers are collectively passionate about.  The successful program has proven instrumental in the development of highly credible emerging artists and will begin on August 24th.

Reaction to the band’s fall tour, which quickly sold-out following their Fallon appearance in early August, illuminates the impressive story Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are in the midst of building. The show set for September 10th at 350-person capacity The Echo in Los Angeles sold out so quickly it was moved to the 700 capacity Echoplex, which then sold out in a matter of minutes – finally, the show has now been set at 1,100 seat Regent Theater in downtown L.A. Shows in Chicago, Iowa, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Nashville, New Orleans, Austin, have all been moved to bigger venues to accommodate the crush of fans who want to experience the band live. Find the full tour schedule below.

Critical reaction to the album has been passionate on both sides of the Atlantic.  The UK’s Q Magazine 4 Star rave proclaims: “As an album, it’s something of a revelation; the stunning sound of an artist being born again,” while the Village Voice adds, “A new project doesn’t necessarily encourage a full-on reckoning that wreaks havoc on your body and soul, but that’s what Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats conjure up night-in and night-out,” and Consequence of Sound furthers: “Drums and bass stomp deep and hard right from the first notes…Horns accompany organs that ring out with quintessential Stax vibes, even as some sturdy guitar work links back to Rateliff’s folksier recordings. As is so often the case in a live setting, it’s Rateliff’s own vocals that seal the deal…”

The band is set to return to late-night television on September 15th with a performance on CONAN.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – AUGUST 13TH, 2015 – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ debut self-titled album, set for release August 21 on Stax/Concord Records, is streaming now at NPR Music as a First Listen. NPR Music praises Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, saying “Rateliff isn’t simply resurrecting the ghost of R&B past like some garden-variety neo-soul necromancer: He’s out to shake the sheets, sermonize and get downright elemental.”

Most recently, the band made their late night television debut performing lead single “S.O.B.” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, watch it here. Of the performance Fallon gushed, “It’s going to be everyone’s favorite new band, everyone’s favorite new song. It’s the song of the summer.” Fallon was so moved by the band’s combustible performance that he further shared in a tweet, “If you believe in soul… if you believe in rock n roll… if you believe in performing your guts out… Enjoy the band on our show tonight,” and Questlove also lauded, “a hellofadebut tonight on #FallonTonight @NRateliff wow!!!!”

“S.O.B.” is currently #1 on the Spotify U.S. Viral Chart (#5 Globally) and was featured in last month’s installment of NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation: http://n.pr/1Iqr5DD. In addition, the track recently reached #1 on Apple Music’s Rock A-List as well as # 5 on Sirius XM’s “The Spectrum.” The official video can be streamed/shared here: https://youtu.be/1iAYhQsQhSY.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is receiving early critical acclaim both stateside and abroad:

“A new project doesn’t necessarily encourage a full-on reckoning that wreaks havoc on your body and soul, but that’s what Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats
conjure up night-in and night-out.”—Village Voice

“The songs are fantastic, too, and Rateliff has found himself an absolute showstopper of a finale…His new single, ‘S.O.B.’, is a spirited three-and-a-half minutes on record. The kind of song you want to play three or four times in a row…”—The Guardian

“‘S.O.B.’… should be heard on a jukebox: it’s got that great soul/gospel/R&B sound that made Stax so important 50 years ago. The fun, gospel-style opening is quickly subverted by an infectious, hard-charging song…”—WNYC

“Rateliff has released a few folk albums on his own, but the group’s new self-titled solo record goes beyond that, giving Rateliff’s formerly spare sound a ferocity and intensity that should surprise some fans.”—The A.V. Club

“Heralded by triumphant peals of brass, ‘Look It Here’ repositions one of the past five years’ most underrated vocalists and songwriters as a kind of biker Otis Redding, all joyful R&B declarations and rough-hewn charm.”—NME

 “Drums and bass stomp deep and hard right from the first notes…Horns accompany organs that ring out with quintessential Stax vibes, even as some sturdy guitar work links back to Rateliff’s folksier recordings. As is so often the case in a live setting, it’s Rateliff’s own vocals that seal the deal…”—Consequence of Sound

Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen, touring musician for The Black Keys) Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats retains the intensely personal and revealing lyrics Rateliff is known for, with The Night Sweats bringing power, joy and soul to the sound.

The band is currently on tour through the fall. Due to high demand, shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C. and Austin have been moved to larger venues. See below for full routing.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph Pope III (bass), Patrick Meese (drums), Luke Mossman (guitar), Mark Shusterman (keys), Wesley Watkins (trumpet) and Andy Wild (saxophone).
