Today, Grammy Award-winning four-piece Greta Van Fleet unveil a live video for “Heat Above,” the latest track from their highly anticipated sophomore LP The Battle at Garden’s Gate, due April 16 via Lava/Republic
“‘Heat Above’ is theatrical, eloquent, and exaggerated,” explains the group. “This is a dream in the clouds, a moment of peace in the storm. Thematically, we are dead center in the cult of Heaven, surreal, strange, alive and free.”
The Battle at Garden’s Gate reflects heavily on the group’s personal and spiritual growth, as well as deepening empathy for the struggles and inequalities others are experiencing.
“We realized that while growing up, we had been shielded by many things,” describes drummer Danny Wagner. “As we started to travel a lot, meet new and different people and experience different cultures, our definition of ‘normal’ changed.” Bassist Sam Kiszka adds, “I suppose that everything has changed except what got us here in the first place…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.”
