Greta Van Fleet have released a live video for Age Of Machine. Taken from the band's upcoming album Battle At Garden Gate, Age Of Machine was released as a single in December. The album will be released on April 16 and is available to pre-order now.

According to singer Josh Kiszka, Battle At Garden's Gate is, "very dynamic, lyrically speaking. And that’s the human experience. It’s much more than pain or fear; it’s also beauty. People need people, and love is important.” 
“There was a lot of self-evolution happening during the writing of this album that was prompted by experiences I had, experiences we all had, so a lot of contemplation occurred."

"It’s reflecting a lot of the world that we’ve seen," adds guitarist Jake Kiszka, "and I think that it’s reflecting a lot of personal truth. What Josh does very well with the lyrics is telling ancient tales with a contemporary application."

In the video Age Of Machine is performed in stark, atmospheric monochrome, before it bursts into colour, with blues and golds to the fore as the song climaxes. The solo from Jake is a particular highlight, and will surely be developed into a lengthy instrumental interlude once the band are able to tour again.
