NATIVE SONS is pleased to welcome new members, Travis Meredith (bass), Brett Siples (drums), and Michael Bowman (guitar) to the band. NATIVE SONS founding member Ashton Blake (vocals) has infused the group with new blood, passion, and energy. With a renewed focus and an eagerness to tour, the band is already out supporting their debut release titled ‘The Natives Are Restless’. Released on March 12, 2021, ‘The Natives Are Restless’ has quickly created a rock n roll frenzy for fans. So much so that their back to back record release parties sold out with subsequent shows mirroring the opening nights, and their road schedule is being added to daily with the buzz continuing to gain strength. With no signs of slowing down NATIVE SONS has already solidified themselves as a force in their own hometown of Louisville, KY.
Metal Temple gives the album 10/10/10/10, Jace Media says ” the album’s conciseness makes it one of those rare discs you can leave on ‘repeat’ and find something new to enjoy with each listen.”, Sleaze Roxx says “has bags of swagger and a real early Black Crowes tinge to it”. Radio continues to pick up the new single ‘The Key’ around the world with the song leaping in to the Top 10 on several radio station and peaking at #1 on 97 Underground in Baltimore, MD.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to graciously thank Kevin, Adam and Diego for all their hard work and time in the band. I love all the guys but this is the best move for me going forward as I want to tour and play out everywhere and anywhere as much as possible” – Ashton Blake
