Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats with Special Guest Delta Spirit 

Tuesday, August 17

Growing up in rural Missouri, Nathaniel Rateliff got his early music education from his family, who performed in the church band in which he played drums. At 19, Rateliff moved to Denver, where he worked night shifts at a bottle factory and a trucking company while testing out songs at open-mic events.

Rateliff’s 2010 solo album, In Memory of Loss, propelled him to the forefront of Denver’s tight-knit folk scene, with The New York Times dubbing him “a local folk pop hero.” His debut as well as subsequent solo albums continued to receive critical acclaim while he continued to explore his sound. A set of rough demos recorded in 2013 pointed Rateliff in a new direction, and somewhere between Sam & Dave and The Band, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats was born.

The band’s self-titled debut album was a breakout success and their sophomore album, Tearing at the Seams, debuted in March 2018 to widespread critical acclaim as well. Last year, Rateliff released his first solo album in seven years, And It’s Still Alright, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Americana/Folk” char and resided at No. 1 on the Americana Albums Chart for eight consecutive weeks.

Modest Mouse Announces 2021 Tour, Shares New Song Leave A Light On; New Album The Golden Casket Out June 25 on Epic Records 

Modest Mouse announced their return earlier this month, and today they’ve not only shared a new single off their forthcoming album, they’ve also plotted out an extensive U.S. tour. Modest Mouse is known as one of the most consistent live bands around, and today they’ve announced a US tour that kicks off at the end of July and will include festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas and Austin City Limits in Austin as well as shows at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel, LA’s Theatre at the Ace Hotel and DC’s The Anthem. They’ll also be joined on a string of dates with special guests Future Islands including Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater and Seattle’s Marymoor Park. Tickets for the tour go on sale Wednesday, May 26th at 10am local time. Visit modestmouse.com for more information. 

Also recently released is Leave a Light On, the second single off their anxiously awaited seventh full-length, The Golden Casket, out June 25 via Epic Records. The song finds Brock navigating the existential threat of losing our humanity – and the interconnectedness that come with it – amidst a constant societal barrage of physical and digital materialism. Earlier this month, the band shared the first single We Are Between.  Listen to both below.

The band’s seventh- studio album, The Golden Casket, heralds another new chapter in the band’s unpredictable evolution. Over the past quarter century, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has served as indie rock’s resident backwoods philosopher, pondering his infinitesimal place in the world at large and seeking balance in a universe governed by polar opposites. On Modest Mouse’s earliest records, he was surveying the changes in the world’s physical landscape from the windows of the tour van, lamenting the displacement of natural beauty with big-box blights. The Golden Casket, the band’s seventh-studio album, is exploring the degradation of America’s psychic landscape through the glass of the smartphone screen and invisible technology. Brock also touches on a new theme in his life, fatherhood. 

Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science.
