Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats today release their highly anticipated fourth studio album South of Here via Stax—listen/purchase here. The record, produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchee, Bon Iver, Kevin Morby) seamlessly blends both sides of Rateliff’s immense talent: emotionally potent, vivid storytelling and the rugged, R&B revivalism that has powered the band to world-wide acclaim over the past decade.

The band recently recorded a special performance for Howard Stern, in which they performed selects songs from the record as well as a cover of “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen. The special will air on Sirius XM H101 on July 12.

Rateliff & The Night Sweats have announced a brand-new series of headlining U.S. arena dates—their largest tour to date, and another career milestone culminating from their renowned history of powerful live performances and Rateliff’s undeniable stage presence. The tour includes performances in Austin at the Moody Center, Chicago’s United Center, St. Paul’s Excel Center and a landmark show at Madison Square Garden. Gregory Alan Isakov will be the support act on these dates. See full schedule below, full details and list of dates can be found here. Tickets are on sale now.

Recorded at Sonic Ranch outside El Paso, Texas, South of Here reckons with a lifetime of pain and trauma and transforms it into a stirring, soul-baring rumination on love, loss, hope and resolve.

The album’s most recent single, “Get Used to the Night”, a moving tribute to his late friend and collaborator Richard Swift, was praised by RIFF, who celebrated its “sumptuous Van-Morrison-style grooves with liquid horns.” The second single “David and Goliath” was lauded by Louder, describing “This 21st century americana star bares his soul to stunning effect on this latest track – all moody Beatles-y sensibilities with a soulful lift, articulating the internal fights so many of us face.”

The band performed the album’s lead single “Heartless” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on June 13, watch here. The song is #1 at Americana Radio for the fifth consecutive week and continuing to climb, hitting #2 on Triple A Charts. A new video for “Heartless” directed by award winning director Kimberly Stuckwisch is also out now—watch here.

Borne from the rock clubs in and around Denver, CO., Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have released three LPs, two EPs, and a live album. Since their 2015 self-titled breakthrough album, the band has established themselves as generational talents through their ecstatic and dynamic live performances and a growing catalog of essential studio recordings. South of Here is another mighty leap forward. Bound by the struggle for identity and the search for belonging, it reverberates with the understanding that we’re all in this beautiful mess together.
