2. Rateliff has said in interviews that he’s not a great communicator in his personal life, which makes it funny to be writing songs about things he’s not great at saying! He told one interviewer: “These songs are about the struggles I’ve had in my life—drinking too much, that kind of crap.”

 

 

3. Their single “S.O.B.” was ranked Number 19 on Rolling Stone’s list of best songs of the year for 2015.

 

 

4. The Night Sweats include guitarist Joseph Pope III, keyboardist Mark Shusterman and drummer Patrick Meese. Several more band members include Luke Mossman, Wesley Watkins, and Andy Wild.
