Colorado-bred singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff will be bringing his acclaimed band, The Night Sweats, to Byron Bay Bluesfest next year for their maiden journey to Australia, and the outfit has just upped the ante on their visit by announcing a pair of standalone sideshows to complement their forthcoming festival appearance.

The band, who released their debut LP to wide acclaim earlier this year (buoyed by the enthusiastic reception afforded to its lead single, S.O.B.), will take to the stage at Melbourne's 170 Russell on Wednesday 30 March, backing it up in Sydney, at the Metro Theatre, the following evening, 31 March.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale this Thursday, 26 November; Melbourne's show will be available from 10am AEDT and via Bluesfest Touring; Sydney gets the green light at 11am via Ticketek.
