Native Announce West Coast Dates w/ RX Bandits and Fake Problems

Clearly growing up under the influence of classic post-punk bands like Fugazi and Shellac, Native have succeeded in forging something original from the discordant madness of those bands and the catchy, intricate guitar interplay of '90s Midwest staples like Braid and American Football. - Exclaim Canada

Being this EP is close to a year old and about to enter its fourth pressing or so, I imagine we might get something new from the band later this year. If We Delete; Erase is any indication, it's something to look forward to. -

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

Native’s self-released debut EP, We Delete; Erase, has been recently unleashed online, and their fresh, confident sound is filling their listeners with hope for some great things to come. - CMJ

Sargent House recording artists Native will set out on a series of US tour dates kicking off later this month and extending into February 2011, in support of their latest album "Wrestling Moves," and will be joined by fellow label mates RX Bandits and Side One Dummy artists Fake Problems.

The band is also giving away their critically acclaimed debut EP "We Delete; Erase" for free this week only (fans can download the record here) and look out for more dates to be announced for their March tour with Mylene Sheath recording artists Caspian that will end at SXSW.
