Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats announced an additional leg on their tour to promote their album Tearing at the Seams, including a stop at Surly Brewing Festival Field with Hiss Golden Messenger on Friday, August 30. Their aptly-titled 2018 release shows the band tearing at their own seams, at their sturdy sound, at long-held definitions of friend and family and band. It’s an album building on the sound of their debut and dramatically redefining what they can do and where they can go next.

The Wood Brothers’ sixth album, One Drop of Truth, dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles and influences to find three musicians being true to themselves.

The group returns to the Mainroom on Thursday, November 14.
