Greta Van Fleet have shared a live video of “Heat Above” featured on their sophomore LP, “The Battle At Garden’s Gate, due April 16th via Lava/Republic. The band commented on the energy surrounding the track and the vocal point of the album.
“‘Heat Above’ is theatrical, eloquent, and exaggerated. 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.
Drummer Danny Wagner added:
“We realized that while growing up, we had been shielded by many things. As we started to travel a lot, meet new and different people and experience different cultures, our definition of ‘normal’ changed.”
Bassist Sam Kiszka commented as well:
“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.”
