It clocks in at just under seven minutes and comes with a hearty serving of the usual comparison of Zeppelin-esque mystique, and yet Age Of Machine has a grandiose presence of its own; swerving and soaring with a maturity that belies the tender years of Greta Van Fleet. The good news? There’s a full album of this stuff “Battle At Garden’s Gate” on the way. The bad news? You’ll have to wait until April though to get your hands on it.

Greta Van Fleet, the GRAMMY-winning, GOLD-certified rock’n’roll band, shared their visionary new video for the song “Age of Machine” .

The video creates a new universe filled with symbolism and open to interpretation, with whispers of reflections on modernism. It is a response, a tiny piece of art in a very large conversation – four brothers and friends who spend very little time online, filled with questions – where is technology taking us, what does it all mean, and what are we trading in exchange? The video addresses the crumbling beauty around us, but leaves the final significance to the viewer – whether that narrative be focused on climate, industrialism, intimacy, self confidence, tradition, humanity itself, or otherwise. The only clear concept in the video is that the band chooses life.

An epic, seven-minute single that announces their highly anticipated sophomore album, The Battle at Garden’s Gate, Led Zep reincarnate return with a rousing single that opens with a sultry, overdriven SG tone and leans graciously into an epic chorus that beckons the audience to scream along.

The “Age of Machine” music video was co-directed by Greta Van Fleet and Matthew Daniel Siskin. The new song released last Friday with the announcement of The Battle at Garden’s Gate, the band’s new album due April 16th, 2021 via Lava/Republic Records.

Frontman Josh Kiszka pondered, ​“I think there has most certainly been change, but it’s very hard for me to have a great deal of perspective on it. Being at the heart of the process it’s tough to stand back and look at it. Have we evolved? Most certainly. We evolve as people every day and we’re constantly trying to push and challenge ourselves. That means not just musically, but philosophically and spiritually.”

When asked if the band have taken on any fresh influences on The Battle At Garden’s Gate, Josh nodded,​“Yes, and I would say that there’s going to be quite a reaction to this, because it is quite a bit different to what we’ve done in the past. But I’ll say no more about that for now. I want people to make up their own minds and make of it what they will.”

New album, “The Battle at Garden’s Gate,” available 16th April 2021
