It’s here! Gang of Youths has released a new single called “The Angel of 8th Ave.” It’s the band’s first new music in almost four years. You can listen at the links below, then let us know what you think of the song in our web forum and/or our Discord forum.

Confirmed: Gang of Youths releasing “The Angel of 8th Ave.” on June 15

No more speculation and guessing. Gang of Youths has confirmed today that they’ll release “The Angel of 8th Ave.” next Tuesday, June 15 at 5 pm GMT.

It’s great to have a date and time, but the weird thing is that we still don’t really know two important bits of info — what is going to be released, and where/how it’s going to be released.

In other words, is “The Angel of 8th Ave.” just a single (like we’ve been saying) or is it the name of the new album? And if it’s a single, is it going to premiere on some big radio show (Zane Lowe/Apple Music) or is it just gonna drop across all the streaming platforms at that time?

In any case, it’s great to know the band is releasing something next week. Can’t wait!

Did Gang of Youths just reveal a release date for “The Angel of 8th Ave.”?

The intrigue grows!

As I type this, every Gang of Youths song on Spotify has a short video clip that loops in the background while the song plays. The clip is about 8-10 seconds long, and appears to have a date/time reveal — June 15, 2021 at 17:00 GMT.

The date and time only flash on the screen for a brief moment, so we made a screenshot and added to the end of this clip.

We assume that’s when the band will release its new single, “The Angel of 8th Ave.,” or perhaps the full album? Hmmmm. Album releases are generally done on Friday, and June 15 is next Tuesday. So the guess here is not an album.

Whatever is happening, it’s great to have a date to look forward to. Now we can speculate together for the next 8 days — fun!!

BTW, huge thanks to GOY fan Evelyn Villanueva for discovering this and sharing it in the GOY Appreciation group on Facebook. Great find!
