Native Announce Debut Album Out This Fall on Sargent House!

It lands somewhere between a pissed off Minus The Bear and a caged up Botch - Surfing Magazine

To me, this is creativity incarnate. I think it goes without saying that their new record is highly, highly anticipated.- Absolutepunk

Native, is making noise even before their first full-length. Their self-released debut EP, We Delete; Erase, has been recently unleashed and their fresh, confident sound is filling their listeners with hope for some great things to come. - CMJ

For a band just a little more than a year old, Native play with the confidence and prowess of a group of lifers. - Alternative Press

The youngest addition to the Sargent House roster, Native was born in the Summer of 2007 in the fields of Northest Indiana. Since then, they've managed to self-release an acclaimed EP, 2008's We Delete; Erase (eventually re-released in the UK on Big Scary Monsters and Sargent House in the States), have toured non-stop building an admiral following in a short amount of time through their unforgettable live shows and well executed musicianship, and have also already landed themselves spotlights in high profile publications such as NME, Alternative Press, Surfing Magazine and countless others.

In April 2009, Native began recording their debut full-length, "Wrestling Moves," with producer Chris Common (Pelican, Mammifer, These Arms Are Snakes) at Red Room Studios in Seattle, WA. The album will see the light of day this Fall and has already drawn comparisons to 90's post-hardcore acts The Van Pelt, Braid, At The Drive In, and more.

* Native kicks off a Summer-long US tour starting tonight, and have posted a new song streaming now on their Myspace page. Scroll below for more information!
