Native Tongue is a five-piece progressive hardcore band based out of Townsville in North Queensland. Featuring members from local NQ stalwart metal and indie bands Ghosts Over Japan, In The Eyes of Wolves and Lost Boys, Native Tongue have been been bringing punishing riffs, intricate melodies and high-octane live shows throughout North Queensland since emerging onto the scene in early 2019.

Having racked up a half-dozen shows in 2019 already playing alongside major acts Polaris and The Brave and released a quick succession of music videos, Native Tongue are just getting started, so stay tuned for more in early 2021.
