Gang of Youths have shared a new song, ‘In the Wake of Your Leave’, taken from their upcoming album angel in realtime. The track follows previous entries ‘The Angel of 8th Ave.’, ‘Unison’, ‘The Man Himself’ and ‘Tend the Garden’. Listen to it below.
“I wanted to reflect on how I became dependent on grief for solace and inspiration,” frontman Dave Le’aupepe said of the song in a statement. “The cycle from numbness to acceptance to yearning plays a role in my approach to grieving my dad’s death. As a result, most of the time, I feel a bit futile as a person.”
angel in realtime, the follow-up to 2017’s Go Farther In Lightness, is due for release on February 25 via Warner Records.
