The Aussie band - who consist of David Le'aupepe (lead vocals, guitar), Max Dunn (bass guitar), Jung Kim (lead guitar, keyboards), Donnie Borzestowski (drums), and Tom Hobden - will release Angel In Realtime, which is set for release on 25 February 2022.

From the record, which is the first since 2017's Go Father In Lightness, comes Tend The Garden, which is a tribute to Le'aupepe's father and sees the band go in another interesting direction.

Speaking of their upcoming record, Gang of Youths say, "The album is about the life and legacy of Dave's father, indigenous identity, death, grief and God. And also the Angel, Islington."

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