Gang Of Youths announce new album ‘Angel In Realtime’ and 2022 world tour

They've also unveiled bright new single 'Tend The Garden'

Gang Of Youths have announced the release of their highly anticipated third album, ‘Angel In Realtime’.

Due out on February 25, the new LP will be the band’s first full-length project in almost five years, following 2017’s ‘Go Farther In Lightness’.

The album’s announcement comes with the release of new single ‘Tend The Garden’, a huge tonal change from their recent work, following a lighter, summery route.


‘Tend The Garden’ is the fourth preview to be shared from the band’s new album. It follows on from lead single ‘The Angel Of 8th Ave.’, and subsequent releases ‘Unison’ and ‘The Man Himself’.

You can listen to ‘Tend The Garden’ below:

Describing it, frontman Dave Le’aupepe said it was inspired by his father, as is much of the album; his father’s face adorns the album’s artwork.

“My dad was a gifted and passionate gardener. It’s where he funnelled a lot of his energy and sensitivity, and despite our humble economic status, we were always surrounded by beauty,” Le’aupepe said in a press release.

“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.”


The band as a whole went on to say that the album is also about “Indigenous identity, death, grief and God. And also the Angel, Islington.”
