Stax Records release Tearing at the Seams, the highly anticipated album from
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Tearing at the Seams follows the band’s
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.
"You Worry Me" is the lead single from the album. The 12-track standard edition
is released on 180g double LP.
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.”
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are: Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph
Pope III (bass), Patrick Meese (drums), Luke Mossman (guitar), Mark Shusterman
(keys), Andy Wild (saxophone), Scott Frock (trumpet) and Jeff Dazey (saxophone).
