After three years of achieving multiple milestones including four consecutive #1 singles and a Grammy Award, Greta Van Fleet is bolting into the future with its second album, The Battle at Garden’s Gate due April 16, 2021 (Lava/Republic Records). The album can be pre-ordered here.
The Battle At Garden’s Gate came together primarily on the road or while in the studio after the success of 2017’s “Highway Tune” led to the band packing up, leaving home, and eagerly soaking up new experiences on an extended road trip around the world.
“We realized that while growing up, we had been shielded by many things, and we were unaware of a lot of things,” says drummer Danny Wagner. “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.”
“I suppose that everything has changed except what got us here in the first place,” adds bassist Sam Kiszka. “Everything – our perception of the world, perception of life itself, what it means to be an artist, what it means to be part of a beautiful, gorgeous society. We’ve gained a larger understanding of why we’re all here.”
