Northwest Indiana's Native announce new North American tour dates starting in November following the recent release of their sophomore album Orthodox. Having finished an extensive U.S. tour in late September, Native get back on the road, this time with support from Solids on select dates. See complete tour dates below.

Native's entire sophomore album is currently available to stream/share HERE. Check out the band's live in-studio video session for Audiotree HERE. Also, Native are scheduled for a Daytrotter session on November 1st. Be on the lookout for that to post in the fall.

In just a handful of years, Native have quietly built themselves a large word-of-mouth following in the underground as an incendiary live act. The iconoclast group's impeccable musicianship, ominous chords, apocalyptic vocals and innovative rhythms hit with an intensity that can only be described as akin to a white-knuckle thrill ride.

There's as much suffocating darkness as there is thoughtful focus to Native's intricate song structures and pensive lyrics. There's a dark foreboding in the guitar lines simultaneously pushing and pulling, the whole band embracing and tearing apart musical convention with the unpredictability of a protest gone awry.

Orthodox was recorded by Greg Norman (Russian Circles, Pelican) in Tolono, IL and in Chicago throughout 2012 and 2013. The album's taut 8 songs were eventually chosen out of nearly 20 tracks written over a grueling couple of years of writing and reworking ideas in near seclusion. Native's critically-acclaimed 2010 debut full length Wrestling Moves was also issued by Sargent House. The band's self-released EP We Delete: Erase in 2008 got the attention of Sargent House, who then signed the band to management and label.

Orthodox is available everywhere on LP, CD and download via Sargent House as of August 20th, 2013.
