Article Contributed by Sacks and Company | Published on Thursday, August 31, 2017

Exactly two years since its release, the debut, self-titled album from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats has officially been certified GOLD, signifying sales of 500,000 albums in the U.S., according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The band’s hit single, “S.O.B.” has also reached the GOLD sales mark in America. Additionally, the Stax Records release has earned global certifications in Canada (Platinum album + single), the U.K. (Silver album), Switzerland (Gold album + single), and Belgium (Gold album).

The band recently celebrated the special milestone with 20,000 close friends and family at two sold-out hometown shows, August 28th and 29th at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

In late July 2015, the single, “S.O.B.” received early support and heavy airplay across SiriusXM stations led by the Spectrum. The song soon reached #1 on Spotify’s U.S. and Global Viral Charts and became a multi-format hit. Then, in early August, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats made a game-changing, late-night national television debut on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Hailed for its intense and expressive jolt of R&B song craft, the vintage rock and soul album was greeted with ecstatic reviews here and around the world.  For two solid years, Nathaniel Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph Pope III (bass), Patrick Meese (drums), Luke Mossman (guitar), Mark Shusterman (keys) and Andy Wild (saxophone) have toured the globe relentlessly, headlining shows and major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Newport Folk Festival, Glastonbury, Monterey International Pop Festival, and dozens more.

In addition, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats made many memorable television appearances including: The Tonight Show (twice!), The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE, CONAN, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Austin City Limits, and BBC’s Later with Jools Holland among others.
