Explained Rateliff in a statement:

We planned to take a year off from Night Sweats shows but the opportunity came to do a tour with Bob Dylan and there was no way we would pass that up.”

As for Bob Dylan, the legendary songwriter/musician has kept moderately busy these past few years, and is the focus of a new biopic in the works reportedly starring Timothee Chalamet and focusing on the ‘Dylan Goes Electric’ era.
