In 2018, Greta Van Fleet caused a bustle in listeners’ hedgerows with their sophomore album Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, which saw them reviving classic rock for a new generation of fans. Now, the band have announced a new studio release, and have dropped a fresh single “Age of Machine” along with it.
Greta Van Fleet’s new album will be called The Battle at Garden’s Gate, and is set to drop April 16th, 2021. According to the band, the album confronts some themes of interacting with a world that perhaps the guys in Greta had n ever confronted before, but have been forced to in both their touring years and the absolute shitshow of 2020.
“We realized that while growing up, we had been shielded by many things, and we were unaware of a lot of things,” drummer Danny Wagner says. “And then we were thrown out into this huge world, and it was a bit of a culture shock at first. But as we started to travel a lot, meet new and different people and experience different cultures, our definition of ‘normal’ changed.”
You can listen to the new single, “Age of Machine,” below:
Greta Van Fleet’s The Battle at Garden’s Gate will hit shelves on April 16th, 2021. Also included on the album will be “My Way Soon,” the track that the band dropped earlier this year.
