Michigan's very own The Native Howl are about embark on one of their biggest tours to date, as support for 96 Bitter Beings, CKY founder Deron Miller's newest band. The announcement was made recently as the Trash-Grass band from Oakland Township will be exposed to an even bigger audience than ever before. Their video for Thunderhead (see below) has over 1 million views on YouTube, as well as many other successfully performing videos. You can view the full tour lineup below:

One of the most influential bands in terms of sound, creativity, originality, and strive right now is The Native Howl, a group of friends who came together to create a genre of their own. The Native Howl's music is "Thrash Grass," a hybrid of Thrash Metal and Bluegrass that delivers a uniquely dirty-rustic and sharp sound that no other band has ever performed, nor can it be replicated.

Lead vocalists and guitarists, Alex Holycross and Jake Sawicki had been friends and musicians in the same area for several years before venturing into what would result in the current lineup of The Native Howl. In the fall of 2013, primarily as a duo, they released a 6 song EP, “The Revolution’s Dead.” With the addition of Josh LeMieux on drums, and eventually Mark Chandler on bass, the Howl’s music has evolved into their own unique blend of rock, folk, bluegrass, alternative, and experimental genres, one of which is being coined as "Thrash Grass."
