NATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATS CONFIRM TOUR WITH BOB DYLAN

RATELIFF’S SOLO ALBUM AND IT’S STILL ALRIGHT OUT NOW ON STAX RECORDS TO CRITICAL PRAISE

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats announce a summer tour with Bob Dylan—marking The Night Sweats’ only shows of the year. The tour will make stops at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium, Bethel’s Woods Center for the Arts and more with the band playing a full 60-minute set before Dylan and his band take the stage. The Hot Club of Cowtown will open the show every night.

Rateliff explains, “We planned to take a year off from Night Sweats shows but the opportunity came to do a tour with Bob Dylan and there was no way we would pass that up.”

Meanwhile, Rateliff continues on his sold-out And It’s Still Alright tour, which features various aspects of his stellar musicianship, ranging from stripped-back moments with just his voice and acoustic guitar, to a full-band accompaniment and four-piece string section. The shows are in support of his new solo album, And Its Still Alright, which is out now on Stax Records to critical praise. The current set pulls from his pre-Night Sweats catalog and his new record.

The new album peaked at #3 on iTunes’ “Top Albums” chart, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Americana/Folk” chart, landed at #2 on their “Current Rock” chart and the lead single and title track rose to #1 on their “Adult Alternative” chart, marking Rateliff’s first solo #1. In addition, “And It’s Still Alright” has currently stayed at #1 on Triple A Radio for three consecutive weeks and #1 on the Americana “Singles” chart for the sixth consecutive week and “Album” chart for the second consecutive week. 

And It’s Still Alright continues to receive widespread acclaim:

“Nathaniel Rateliff returns, this time as a solo artist, with what may be his best batch of songs yet.” –NPR "All Songs Considered"

“And It’s Still Alright is stop-what-you’re-doing beautiful.” –Evening Standard

“In the end, what could be an album of well-earned indulgence ends up being as much about reaching outward than burrowing inward, rendering deep personal suffering with a humane light touch. And It’s Still Alright the heartening sound of music pulling him through his pain, and, hopefully, past it into something like solace.” –Rolling Stone

“The result is a set of compositions of intense power, and an album that
reaches multiple emotional crescendos, from grown male grief rarely expressed in contemporary song to varying degrees of regained equilibrium.” –The Wall Street Journal

“...his new solo work takes him in a gentler acoustic direction, which is echoed across his upcoming album. His baritone has a lovely ragged edge.” –TIME

“A great excuse to shut out the world and have a good cry.” –Uncut

“...regardless of instrumentation and genre, Rateliff’s reflex to write
through painful mysteries remains the same.”
–Billboard
