“Independent record stores are the lifeblood of the music industry. ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ Limited Edition White Vinyl is being pressed exclusively for shops that give our communities soul.”
– Greta Van Fleet
The highly anticipated sophomore album from Grammy Award-winning four-piece Greta Van Fleet, The Battle at Garden’s Gate, is out tomorrow, April 16, via Lava/Republic. Pre-order the album HERE, and more info on the album website HERE.
“The Battle at Garden’s Gate is about hope and overcoming the challenges that humanity faces,” says the band’s Sam Kiszka, “We live in a world powered by superficial institutions and this album is a reminder that it’s up to us to sing out of the silence.”
Producer Greg Kurstin (Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Adele) adds, “Hearing these songs evolve into expansive soundscapes took me on an amazing journey. I love that they explored these complex song structures, and the band reached for chords, melodies and lyrics that stretch beyond the usual. Most of all, I admire that Greta Van Fleet have stayed true to themselves.”
In addition to “Heat Above,” the cinematic album features the previously released tracks “Broken Bells,” “Age of Machine,” and #1 Active Rock Radio single “My Way, Soon.” Rolling Stone raves that the band “aim to bust down old walls,” while UPROXX describes them as “electrifying.” MOJO hails “GVF are evolving here.”
The band sold out of The Battle at Garden’s Gate double LP specialty vinyl on their store prior to album release, but some variations are still available while supplies last HERE.
New and old sounds for Fall give tribute to a lost Rolling Stone, a Jamaican mastermind record producer who first introduced tape looping, splicing and time-stretching vocals, and a young Modern-funk maverick from the Bay Area who passed far too soon.
