Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will return with their new studio album Tearing at the Seams on March 9 via Stax Records. The record follows up the Denver-based band’s excellent self-titled 2015 debut and comes after last year’s Live at Red Rocks release.

“For the first record I demo’ed everything up and created most of the parts,” Rateliff says. “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. 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.”

The band has also premiered the first single from the Richard Swift-produced album, “You Worry Me.” Listen in the lyric video below.
