The Herd released their third album The Sun Never Sets in 2005, featuring the single "We Can't Hear You". Their subjects ranged from their well-known anti-war stance and anti-corporatism to more personal topics like divorce and the slow death of the Australian outback/country.
In April 2005, Unkle Ho released his debut solo album Roads to Roma. The album samples music from a wide variety of international musical genres such as tango, mariachi, dixieland, and blues rock. According to the Elefant Traks website, "[Unkle Ho's] strategy for world peace is to write a song that has every culture in the world represented, so people will drop their guns and dance 'till they can't dance no more. Roads to Roma was acclaimed as "bewitchingly beautiful by Rolling Stone magazine. His second album, Circus Maximus was released in May 2007.
In October 2005, The Herd featured live on Triple J's 'Like a Version' (acoustic covers) segment. They performed their own version of the famous Australian 1983 song "I Was Only Nineteen (A Walk in the Light Green)" by Redgum. The song was so well received by fans that it received regular Triple J airplay and was voted #18 in the 2005 Triple J Hottest 100 countdown. They have since recorded a studio version which is to be released on the re-release of The Sun Never Sets, and they have also created a video clip for the song. The video can be viewed at http://www.brokenyellow.com/. The Herd performed at The Big Day Out 2007.
In March 2008 the Herd announced that it was releasing its fourth studio album, Summerland, in May, 2008. The first single from the album "The King is Dead" makes reference to Australia’s change in government with John Howard being replaced after 11 years as Prime Minister by Kevin Rudd. In an interview with Triple J, Rok Poshtya advised:
'We just finished recording the new album on Saturday. So we're mixing it for the next three weeks. And it should be out like April, May. And we'll have a song to various radio stations that matter in March hopefully.'
