Australian Post-Rock group Treebeard have announced their signing to Bird’s Robe Records and will re-release their debut album “Nostalgia” on Friday 27 October internationally for the first time, in celebration of the record’s 2 year anniversary this year.
The band joins the impressive Bird’s Robe roster, featuring a huge array of Australia’s legendary Progressive, Alternative, Post-rock, Post-Metal and Experimental pop artists, including We Lost The Sea, sleepmakeswaves, Meniscus, Closure In Moscow, Toehider, Solkyri & more.
Drawing influences from Mogwai, Nick Cave and more, the Melbourne band have earned the respect of their peers and plaudits from media. The Nostalgia album was described by WherePostRockDwells as: “an absolute treasure trove of crunchy guitars, emotive soundscapes and a perfect balance between light, dark, heavy, light elements and everything that comes between”
The band are currently in production for a forthcoming new album, due out in early 2024.

The band posted this message to social media about the partnership: “We are thrilled to announce that Treebeard is now joining Sydney-based record label and promoter Bird’s Robe! We are so excited and humbled to be on a roster featuring many of Australia’s finest post / prog artists, including many of our peers as well as some of our biggest influences such as We Lost The Sea, sleepmakeswaves, Solkyri, Mushroom Giant and many more!
With our debut album Nostalgia having come out during lockdown, it was always felt that its potential was never fully realised post release. Mike after hearing the album agreed, and therefore we are also happy to announce we are rereleasing Nostalgia, with more details to come soon.”
Many thanks to Bird’s Robe for welcoming us, and to all our supporters for getting us to this point! We’re only just getting started…”
Mike Solo, Director of Bird’s Robe, said: “I’m very happy to welcome Treebeard to the Bird’s Robe family. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know their music and chatting to Pat in particular over the past several months. There’s so much going on these days and it’s clear that the Nostalgia record passed me by on its initial release, as I expect it did for a lot of other people. So I’m really enthusiastic about bringing the band to a wider audience for this excellent record, ahead of the new music they’re currently working on.
True to the reputation of Melbourne artists, Treebeard are hard workers and have put in the time to craft a sound that they can call their own. I’m excited to see where they take us next.”
Further details about the forthcoming release will be announced soon.
