Native Tongue is the fourth studio album by American hard rock band Poison, released in 1993 through Capitol Records. It peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200, #20 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA on April 21, 1993. It has also been certified by CAN platinum. The album features new lead guitarist Richie Kotzen. Kotzen was hired as the bands guitarist following the firing of C.C. DeVille in late 1991. The album features the singles “Stand” which featured the Los Angeles First A.M.E. Church Choir on backing vocals, “Until You Suffer Some (Fire And Ice)” and “Body Talk”.

Musical style:
While the band is generally associated with the glam metal genre, Native Tongue also features funk and blues elements. Richie Kotzens influence upon the sound of the album is unmistakable. In songs such as “The Scream”, the bands traditional sustaining power chords were jettisoned in favor of complex, funky palm-muted heavy metal riffs.

Production and marketing:
Admitted as a full-fledged member of the band rather than a “hired gun”, Kotzen was given considerable creative freedom. Resultingly, Kotzens writing and performing contributions dominated the album.
Kotzen would later be expelled from the band following the world tour, after it was discovered that he had been romantically involved with the fiance of drummer Rikki Rockett. Recollections of the album, while no doubt soured by these events, nonetheless appear to faithfully reflect the basic clash between Kotzens style and that of the bands founding members. Kotzen would later claim that “being in Poison helped me forget I was a musician”, while Rockett would lament the loss of the bands original “attitude”.
The album was recorded and mixed at A&M Studios in Hollywood, California, and Rumbo Recorders in Canoga Park, California with producer Richie Zito. It was dedicated to Van Halen tour manager Scotty Ross and former Poison guitarist DeVille. The album peaked at #16 on the Billboard chart.
The first two singles “Stand” and “Until You Suffer Some (Fire And Ice)” featured music videos and charted in the US and the UK. “Stand” reached number 15 on the Mainstream rock chart, #35 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart and #50 on the Billboard Hot 100[8]. The song also charted at number 25 on the UK Singles chart and “Until You Suffer Some (Fire And Ice)” peaked at number 32 on the UK Singles chart.
Following the album the band released a video/DVD titled Seven Days Live which featured a concert from the Native Tongue world tour.

Lyrically, the band continued on the growing sophistication that began in Flesh and Blood. The albums themes include battles against injustice (“Scream”, “Stand”), heartbreak (“Until You Suffer Some”, “7 Days Over You”, “Theatre of the Soul”), and inner demons (“Stay Alive”).
