Natives Are ‘Chasing Lions’ As They Return


This year is full of pleasant news regarding bands’ returns after long silences: we’ve waited nearly 5 years but Simple Plan’s new album is finally out, Good Charlotte’s calendar is getting busy again (which yours truly is the most excited about), even The Summer Set are not breaking up but are stronger than ever. These are all examples of how the quiet can have a bigger and better meaning before that storm.

Newest of such news is that NATIVES have also returned, following two years of down time. Truth be told, I buried them in my mind a long time ago because having no news is usually bad news with most bands. Once again, I was proven wrong and couldn’t be happier about it.


Chasing Lions’ is the first from an upcoming concept record to see the light – as reported on The 405 where the song premiered earlier – and is set to be released on March 18th via The Santi Collective/Lab Records.

The band has taken brave changes towards their music, resulting in a more exotic sound that brings visions of tropical adventures in the jungle to mind. This is as far as it can be from what NATIVES were known for. It surely will surprise some – personally, I love it and appreciate their courage of moving into unknown yet more exciting territories.

It took a little time to get here, but welcome back NATIVES!
