True to form, the band isn’t propping its boots up to celebrate. 28 and 29. The band marked the distinction during its two-night run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Aug. See its full list of tour dates here. Denver’s Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats celebrates its first gold-certified album backstage at Red Rocks. In an addendum, Rateliff also announced at the band’s Tuesday concert that its guitar tech/tour manager Nate Meese has amicably parted ways with the band. But the the band’s latest milestone has that record glowing gold. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats will play a sold-out show at Aspen’s Belly Up on Friday night, and play the Jazz Aspen Snowmass music festival on Saturday. Related Articles

Earlier this week, the band’s self-titled debut was certified gold in the United States, a recognition awarded by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling 500,000 album-equivalent units (that means streams and individual track downloads count, too).

Denver’s Nathaniel Rateliff sported a turquoise-and-silver chain on the cover of his debut album with the Night Sweats. The certification came exactly two years after the debut album was released, according to a release from Sacks & Co, the band’s media relations firm. A scene staple, Nate and his brother Pat (who is the Night Sweats’ drummer) have been a part of a bunch of Denver music projects that bear their last name, like the band Meese and the Meese Party, an unofficial Underground Music Showcase backyard concert series.
