Native is the youngest addition to the ever growing and diverse roster at Sargent House which also includes: Russian Circles, Cast Spells, These Arms Are Snakes, Tera Melos, RX Bandits, Good Old War, Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Zechs Marquise, Red Sparowes, Zach Hill and This Town Needs Guns.
Native fit in beautifully, with an inventive sound that brims with powerful riffs, passionate lyrics, and a youthful energy that is sure to invigorate even the most cynical. While many compare Native to other successful DIY predecessors, the bands most important quality lies within the distinction of their style. Native have created their own brand of sonic swagger, and while many words can be used to describe them, boring or predictable certainly don't come to mind. In just a year of being a band they have toured extensively with their live show leaving the ultimate impression filling rooms simply by word of mouth.
Native began recording their debut full-length, "Wrestling Moves," in April 2009 with producer Chris Common (Pelican, Mammifer, These Arms Are Snakes) at Red Room Studios in Seattle, WA.

"To me, this is creativity incarnate. I think it goes without saying that their new record is highly, highly anticipated. " -Absolute Punk
"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
"Perhaps it's the group's intelligent guitar work, which recalls the geometric riffs of Jawbox and Faraquet- Or maybe it's the fact that the vocalist's yelps sound more like a pissed Ian MacKaye than a Warped Tour screamo outfit." -Ryan Wasoba , Riverfront Times
"Just when I feel myself reaching that point where everything is beginning to sound a bit stale, a band like Native comes along and knocks me out. There is definitely nothing boring or generic about this Indiana band. They play a powerful blend of screamy, mathy hardcore that leaves other like-minded bands in the dust" -Sound As Language
