Considering 93% of bands break up before releasing their second records,(1) Master Manipulator, the sophomore album from Denver-based Native Daughters, is in many respects a substantial feat. As the inspirational metal-oriented fucking rock group (2) has carved off a coalition of fans from indie, metal, punk, and every background in between, it has weathered the storms that usually decimate other purveyors of music. (3) Perhaps these gentlemen (4) owe their longevity as a group to their decade-plus stints in the Denver music scene (5) and have grown to understand what a pain in the ass it is to start a new band from scratch. Or maybe they’re just a bunch of lifers who do it because they have to. (6) Either way, Denver’s pretty damn lucky to have an inspirational metal-oriented fucking rock group like Native Daughters who has released not just one, but two LPs of sweet fucking tunes. Recently, we spoke with guitarist Justin Hackl (7) about getting out aggression, not writing lyrics, and fucking kids these days.
