On March 9th, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will release Tearing At The Seams, their brand new record with Stax Records.
The lead single, You Worry Me has also been unveiled today today – listen to the track here…
The undeniably anthemic track is the first taste of a record from a band who have been playing together, every night for the last two years. A fuller, more resolved sound than we’ve heard from the Night Sweats before, it is representative of a band perfectly in sync with each other, showcasing a finesse and musical maturity found throughout the album.
The group dynamic is pivotal to the Night Sweats; initial writing and recording sessions for Tearing At The Seams took place in Rodeo, New Mexico where Rateliff & the band re-established their writing and recording process…
“For the first record, I demo’ed everything up and created most of the parts,” says Rateliff. “This time, I felt like we’ve all spent so much time on the road that we should all go off somewhere together. We should all have that experience together.”
The band finished recording with producer Richard Swift—who has helmed records for the Shins and Foxygen in addition to The Night Sweats’ debut—collectively creating a group of songs that capture the band’s emotion and intensity.
Rateliff reflects, “I want—and I need—everybody to feel like they’re a part of this band. I want them to feel like they’re contributing artistically and emotionally to the experience of writing and creating this music. We’ve all had to make sacrifices to be in The Night Sweats and I want them all to know that it’s worth something.”
The album is available for pre-order today. In addition to the 12-track standard edition, Tearing At The Seams will be available in a 14-track deluxe edition that features two bonus tracks and exclusive photos. Vinyl editions include the (2-disc, 180gram) 12-track standard edition and the (2-disc, 180gram) 14-track deluxe edition, which features an exclusive photo book and special 7” single.
