Toe W/ Special Guests Dumbsaint

Bird's Robe is thrilled to announce the debut Australia and New Zealand tour of acclaimed Japanese post-rock/math band, toe, this coming October.

toe, known globally for their extraordinary musicianship, have been a major influence in the experimental rock scene for the past two decades. Their tracks and live performances have left a remarkable imprint on the sound of countless bands around the world.

The timing of their debut Australia and New Zealand coincides with the announcement toe is releasing their 4th full album, NOW I SEE THE LIGHT in July 2024, six years since their last EP, Our Latest Number.

Performing alongside toe on this momentous-math-instrumental occasion will be the incredible Dumbsaint, making their highly anticipated return to the stage.

Adding to the hype of toe's first-ever Australia and New Zealand shows, this tour marks an emotional reunion for Dumbsaint. Referencing toe's "The Book..." as the source of inspiration that led the band towards an instrumental approach, drummer Nick Andrews revealed that the upcoming tour symbolises a full circle moment for the band:

"In 2008, our first and only singer had quit the band. Unsure of how to best move forward, I suggested we embrace the idea of going instrumental with the songs we had already written.

Collectively unsure that this idea would work, it wasn’t until I walked into Egg Records and heard Toe’s 'The Book…’ playing over the PA, that everything fell into place. Instantly captivated by their storytelling and musicianship, Toe’s discography became a gateway, providing us with a blueprint to aspire to.

And here we are 16 years later. This tour represents a full circle moment for us, and the right time to close ‘The Book…’ on this chapter of the band. Hopefully see you there."

- Nick

Don't miss out on this historical tour, which is set to be one of the biggest highlights in the experimental rock calendar for 2024.
