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.
