The New Forest tribal-pop quartet will play 24-dates with the pop-rock three-piece, kicking off at the UEA, Norwich on January 28th and finishing at Dublin's Olympia Theatre on March 1st.

Guitarist / synth player Jack Fairbrother said "We're really excited for this tour, it's a chance for us to show people from all over the UK what Natives is all about. We thrive on the challenge of converting audiences who've never heard us before into members of The Tribe and we're extremely grateful to the guys in Busted for giving us the opportunity to do that for so many nights."

Natives have recently completed UK tours with Farro and MOTHXR, and next year’s extensive run of dates with Busted kick-starts what is set to be a very exciting twelve months for the band.

2017 will see the release of Natives forthcoming second album. The ambitious record explores the fictional story of a curious character who embarks on a journey into an unknown world. It’s a record that bursts with pop melodies and world-music influences, as found on their recent string of highly acclaimed singles including ‘Passion’, ‘Stop The Rain’ and ‘Chasing Lions’. The album will be accompanied by a book which delves even further into the narrative.
