Gang of Youths Announce New Album ‘angel in realtime’, Share New Song ‘tend the garden’

    Gang of Youths have announced a new LP: angel in realtime is due out February 25 via Warner Records. Along with the album news, they’ve also announced a run of North American 2022 dates and shared the single ‘tend the garden’. Check out the new song as well as the album details and the band’s tour schedule below.

    In a press release, the band stated that “the album is about the life and legacy of Dave Le’aupepe’s father, indigenous identity, death, grief and God. And also the Angel, Islington.”

    Le’aupepe elaborated: “My dad was a gifted and passionate gardener. It’s where he funnelled a lot of his energy and sensitivity, and despite our humble surroundings, we were always surrounded by beauty. The journey he made from Samoa to NZ to Australia was a difficult and inspiring one, but also fraught with mistakes, regret and terrible choices. I like to think he was building something beautiful, and pondering what life had given him in spite of his mistakes and concealment. We never knew his story until after he died, so this is the most poetic interpretation of his affinity for gardening that I could think of.”

    “I hope the record stands as a monument to the man my father was and remains long after I’m gone myself,” Le’aupepe added. “He deserved it.”

    angel in realtime will include the previously released singles ‘the angel of 8th ave’ and ‘the man himself’. Gang of Youths shared the surprise EP total serene in July, and their last album was 2017’s Go Farther in Lightness.
