Robes is a four piece band from NYC who formed in 2016, from the looks of things.  Guitarist and vocalist Drew Demaio has spent time playing in Gus, Strikeforce Diablo, Argentina, Asshole Parade and Floor.  Bassist and vocalist Dave Diem is a veteran of the same underground Florida music scene and played in Twelve Hour Turn.  Drummer Jeff Gensterblum hails from Michigan and has played drums with bands that include Small Brown Bike, Able Baker Fox, Unwed, States and Kingdoms, and Your Skull My Closet.  Finally, vocalist/guitar player Peter Bartsocas, another Florida native, and now Brooklyn NYC resident has played in Pagan Girls, As Friends Rust, and Bird Of Ill Omen.  Robes play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of post punk, post hardcore, shoegaze, grunge, and indie rock within their sound.  Musically, Robes can be loosely compared to bands such as All The Saints, Aegis, and Torche.  Since forming in 2016, Robes have released a two song EP titled Unholy Moon in July of 2016.  Indecline is the band's debut full-length LP, which was released via Bakery Outlet records on March 17th, 2017.  On Indecline, Robes offer up nine tracks of killer post punk, post hardcore, shoegaze, grunge, and indie rock.  Overall, Indecline makes for an amazing listen.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
