Prepare to be blown away when the Soul and Rock sensations Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats make their Australian touring debut in 2016. It is bound to be a foot tapping, hand clapping, raucous occasion with one of the best new live acts on the road.
All Our Exes Live In Texas supported Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats at both their Melbourne and Sydney shows.
Originally a solo singer-songwriter, Denver’s Nathaniel Rateliff formed the seven-piece soul band Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats in 2013. Their debut self-titled album was released to widespread acclaim on the iconic Stax Records in 2015 and peaked at #17 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart.
After a rousing performance of the debut album’s lead single “S.O.B” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon went viral, the track became the No. 1 add to Alternative and the No. 1 viral track slot globally on Spotify and made its way to #1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs Chart. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have even made it on Billboard’s list of predictions for the ‘Best New Artist’ Grammy Award for 2016.
Those familiar with Rateliff’s solo work have experienced a new sound from this once folk musician, however when they delve beneath the raw-boned surface of the new album’s wall-rattling presentation, with its deep-gut grooves, snaky guitars, churning Hammond and irresistible horns, they will find a familiar, sensitive, introspective voice from Rateliff who simply and bravely tells it like it is.
We can’t wait for Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats to bring their own brand of barn-burning Soul and Rock to Australia for the very first time in March 2016.
