180-gram double LP
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nights Sweats make their long-awaited return with Tearing at the Seams, a staggering album of rock 'n' soul music. Propelled by driving rhythms, blazing hornplay, and Rateliff's rowdy, soul drenched vocals, Tearing at the Seams' tracks crackle with emotion and intensity. From anguished sorrow to ecstatic heights, Rateliff's expressive tenor is unvarnished on the record's tender R&B ballads and nitro-fueled rave-ups.
"You Worry Me" is the lead single from the album. The 14-track deluxe edition is released on 180-gram double LP and features an exclusive photo book and special 7-inch 45 RPM single.
Initial writing and recording sessions for Tearing at the Seams took place in Rodeo, New Mexico where Rateliff & The Night Sweats re-established their dynamic off the stage and in the studio.
"For the first record, I demo'ed everything up and created most of the parts," said 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.
Of the new album, 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."
Issued once again by Stax Records, Tearing at the Seams is the follow-up to the band's 2015 debut, critically and commercially lauded self-titled debut album, which is certified gold in the U.S., Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands, platinum in Canada and silver in the U.K. The two years of extensive world-wide touring since its release steeled Night Sweats into one of world's most electrifying bands. In the studio, Rateliff and producer Richard Swift wanted to capture the full band's attack live in the room. Playing with precision and muscle, The Night Sweats' grooves and Rateliff's commanding vocals come alive amid warm, vacuum-tube ambiance and earthy tones.
