Musician Nathaniel Rateliff, who since 2015 has led the Americana band Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, has announced a 2020 solo tour in support of a forthcoming solo album. Rateliff will return to his early acoustic days with the “And It’s Still Alright” tour.

The show will feature many facets of Rateliff’s musicianship—ranging from stripped back moments with just his voice and an acoustic guitar to the accompaniment of a full band. The set list will feature songs from his entire catalog as well as the new album, which will arrive via Stax Records on Feb. 14. Several songs have been released in advance.

Growing up in rural Missouri, Rateliff got his early music education from his father’s record collection, and from his family, who performed in the church band in which Rateliff played drums. At 19, he moved to Denver where he spent the next ten years working night shifts at a bottle factory and a trucking company while testing out songs at open-mic nights.

Preceding the emergence of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Nathaniel released three albums and an EP to critical praise: Desire and Dissolving Men (2007), In Memory of Loss (2010), Falling Faster Than You Can Run (2013) and the Closer EP (2014).

Rateliff formed Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats in 2013. The band’s 2015 self-titled debut album was a breakout success, thanks in part to its toe-tappin’ song, “S.O.B.,” at #1 hit on Triple A radio. It’s now certified Gold in the U.S., it has sold over a million records worldwide.

Their second album, Tearing at the Seams, was released in 2018 to widespread acclaim and featured three singles that hit #1 at the Triple A radio format (“You Worry Me,” “A Little Honey” and “Hey Mama”).

Rateliff and the band have toured extensively worldwide, and have become favorites of fellow musicians, playing major festivals such as Farm Aid and selling out iconic venues including their hometown Red Rocks Amphitheater multiple times.
