Rateliff, center, with The Night Sweats

With a new album due August 21 on the legendary Stax Records, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are about to make things official. Rateliff has released a few folk albums on his own, but the group’s new self-titled solo record goes beyond that, giving Rateliff’s formerly spare sound a ferocity and intensity that should surprise some fans. Get a first listen to that sound with “S.O.B.,” the record’s first single, which we’re premiering exclusively below.

Produced by Richard Swift, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is available for pre-order now. The group is also on tour both right now and throughout the summer. Dates are below.
