The Herd are an Australian hip-hop outfit from the suburbs of Sydney. Unusual for a hip-hop outfit they have a full band format which permits more dynamic live shows. The Herd are comprised of MCs Ozi Batla, Urthboy and Berzerkatron with Unkle Ho (beats), Traksewt (piano accordion, clarinet and beats), Sulo (beats and guitar), Toe-fu (guitar), Rok Poshtya (bass) and singer Jane Tyrrell. Their songs often feature politically-orientated lyrics.
In March 2008 The Herd announced that it was releasing its fourth studio album, Summerland, in May, 2008. Out and about from June till August, The Herd will be showcasing "Summerland", including the track "The King Is Dead", plus some of the old beats and breaks that has made them one of Australia's favourite hip-hop acts.
