“From the bottom of our hearts we’d like to thank everyone for the amazing response to our new album . We are humbled and can’t wait to present the songs to you live sooner rather than later. Looking forward to going back on tour next year on our own European headline tour in February and March and the one we have planned with our pals in Opeth in the fall of 2022!” –
/ export  have truly proven that no one can stop them on their way to the top! Their new album, , has not only convinced with a high level of creativity and energy in their trademark manner, but has also taken the Icelanders to the well-deserved next level. Praised by critics and loved by new and returning fans, the trio’s new album has managed to gain several chart positions (#21 GER, #60 CH, #45 Current Hard Music Charts US).
As a thank you and to shorten the time until they can play on big, international stages again – the band has come up with a surprise gift for their fans, presenting a high-voltage studio performance video for their track “”, cut from their new album. With this track and the accompanying video,  once again prove that they are not only full of pure talent, but also reach the absolute top in terms of technical expertise.
THE VINTAGE CARAVAN states:
“‘’ is probably the heaviest song on  and hits you flat in the face right from the beginning. It’s an unusual one with heavy riffs, funk influences and all out epic harmonies. Accompanied by a video shot in Hljóðriti studios, we hope you enjoy!”

On 11 diverse tracks, these youngbloods from Reykjavik truly cast a spell on fans of bewitching, guitar-driven classic and blues rock influences. The album opener, “Whispers”, clearly showcases the band’s musical progression without sacrificing their tried-and-true, retro-inspired sonic trademark. “Crystallized ” convinces with light blues influences, encircling the listener in enchanting guitar lines and quickly rising to the full extent of its power while evoking anecdotes of retro nostalgia. “Can’t Get You Out Of My Mind” takes its listener on a blistering ride through pounding drums, intense guitar solos and an undeniably catchy chorus, while tracks like “This One’s For You” represent a stunning blueprint in THE VINTAGE CARAVAN’s musical universe with unconventional, surprisingly calm melodies and Óskar’s gripping, tranquil vocal power. In contrast, bold drumming merges with fast-paced riffs, enveloping an impressive galloping vortex and pronouncing tracks like “Dark Times” and “Said And Done” as top notch rock pieces. The soft plugging, atmospheric sound of album closer “Clarity” symbolizes the crowning culmination of a 60-minute journey through the eternal landscapes of Iceland and the poetic lyricism of the trio.
With their new studio-album Monuments and its captivating, stellar arrangements, these rising stars definitely know how to put their very own stamp on the retro rock wave!
