The Sun Never Sets is the third album by Australian hip hop band The Herd and was released on 3 October 2005.
The album was selected as the Triple J and 2SER 'Album of the Week' and was nominated for the inaugural Triple J - J Award for Australian Album of the year.
The album debuted at #3 on the AIR independent album charts.
In October 2005, The Herd performed a cover of Redgum’s classic anti-war song "I Was Only 19" on Triple J’s ‘Like a Version’ radio program. The song became one of the most heavily requested songs on the station. The Herd's version of "I Was Only 19" was voted in at #18 in the 2005 Triple J Hottest 100 playlist. It was credited to Schumann, Cheung, Fellows, Harrison and Kennedy. A video by Broken Yellow was directed by Brendan Doyle and produced by Navid Bahadori included actors in roles as Australian soldiers, some actual Vietnam Vets including Frankie Hunt are also shown. An audio mp3 download by Triple J's Hack has reporter Ali Benton discussing the video, interviewing Doyle, Schumann and Hunt.
In March 2006 the album was re-issued with the inclusion of "I Was Only Nineteen", with Redgum's John Schumann on vocals.
