Life on the road is never easy and at times it is increasingly difficult…especially if you’re reliant on a flip phone. That’s one step away from waiting for a payphone in a rest stop. I kid of course and “You Worry Me” is taken from the upcoming Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats album Tearing At The Seams. Tearing At The Seams will be available on March 9th.

Directed by Brantley Gutierrez the video features Ethan Embry (Empire Records, Grace and Frankie) and Julia Jones (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Wind River). “You Worry Me” set Billboard’s chart record for the most Triple A radio spins ever in a single week while reaching #1 at Triple A for the fifth consecutive week and #1 at Americana radio for the sixth consecutive week.

Additionally, the band will return to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for the third time to perform “You Worry Me” on Monday, March 12. The track appears on the band’s highly anticipated new album, Tearing at the Seams, out March 9 on Stax Records. The record is available for pre-order here: http://found.ee/NRNStats.

The music is receiving early critical acclaim—Rolling Stone declares, “The first single [‘You Worry Me’] from his forthcoming LP adds Southern-rock bite and weary longing to make for his most urgent song yet,” while Billboard calls them, “The hottest vintage-sounding soul octet in the country.” Q Magazine furthers, “If anything, Tearing at the Seams more accurately captures the feel of Rateliff’s stirring live performances. There’s a looseness and sense of fun here, perhaps because for the first time the songs were written in the company of his band.”

Following the band’s debut performance at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, the band will tour North America this spring, with stops at New York’s historic Apollo Theatre and Los Angeles’ Greek Theater as well as two dates at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tickets are on sale now at nathanielrateliff.com. See below for complete details.

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,” says Rateliff. “This time, I felt like we’ve all spent so much time on the road that we should all go off somewhere. 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.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are: Rateliff (vocals, guitar), Joseph Pope III (bass), Patrick Meese (drums), Luke Mossman (guitar), Mark Shusterman (keys), Andreas Wild (saxophone), Scott Frock (trumpet) and Jeff Dazey (saxophone).
