They try to make a comeback album.Sometimes the lineups mostly gone.
Are there any older bands new music you like a lot?
Does not have to be prog
For me
1)Santana 4 with the original lineup.I have really enjoyed the album
2)Blue and Lonesome Rolling Stones.Blues covers bit they make them in their own Stonesy way and they sound great doing them
3)Robbin Trowers last 2 albums Time And Emotion and Where Are You Going To are really good tasty Blues rock
I am sure I am missing some but it’s a start

There are a whole bunch of prog bands from all around the world who only put out an album or two in the 1970's, but have reemerged within the past decade with new albums, some of which I really enjoy. For instance:

Bubu - Resplandor
Gotic - Gegants I Serpentines
Maxophone - La Fabbrica Delle Nuvole

All come to mind.

new Strawbs "The Ferryman's Curse" is far from perfect but it is the band's 4th respectable album since 2004.
They are paying a lot of respect to their prog fans who have sustained them through the years, while remaining folk rock oriented in their songwriting

King Crimson, VDGG & Magma are the obvious three to me who have continued releasing great music well into the new century though I'd really like KC to release something new & not just be a nostalgia act (superb as it is).

Comus' Out Of The Coma wasn't bad after a 40 year gap, it could of been longer with only 20+ minutes of new music

Mike Oldfield & Roy Harper seem to have returned to form recently.

Faust. Their most recent album 'Fresh Air' is exactly that along with being absolutely brilliant. The opening title track is pure genius imo. Like an airport made into music.

I liked VDGG Do Not Disturb a lot. I know for many the lack of saxophone left it a bit empty but that was not an issue for me. Kansas have made a very good comeback album recently. I also liked the Colosseum album Time from a few years ago. Focus made 3 excellent comeback albums which I found very enjoyable and more 'focused' musicallySmile . I expect Viljans Oga (Anglagard) will get some votes here but I was less than convinced myself.

Well, Anglagard are not a seventies band, much as one might think so to listen to them , so they are strictly outside scope here. I do like VO, but having seen the ‘making of’ documentary it could have been so much more than it is.

Can’t argue with any of that. Add Gong to the list with their last two albums.

The last couple CDs by Goblin — Back to the Goblin 2005 (2006) and Four of a Kind (2015) — were excellent, as good as their '70s records.

For me Oldfield's "Return to Ommadawn" is just as great as his 70's albums, and that's saying a lot, since he has become one of my very favourite artists (because of his 70's work, of course).

I'll agree with Magma (even saw them live and AMAZING!!!), Bubu, love all the newer Van Der Graaf albums even though they're quite different and love the newer incarnations of Goblin especially Goblin Rebirth. Most others though, try as they may don't even come close to the glories of the past. I admittedly don't spend a lot of time waiting for the oldsters to release something new. I write them off until someone raves. Thanks, David for that Faust recommendation. Love them!

Agree on Gong, last 2 have been great.

Not taking into account live releases here.
Though I haven't bought (and barely listened to - but I know that they've held the bar really high) the last few albums from Magma, I'd say they're a prime contender, as is VdGG since their 2005 reunion ...
 
Crimson is maybe a little less so, since I don't care for ConstruKction and Scarcity, though I like TPTB.
 
 
Santana has had a fair amount of good albums of late, indeed... Shape shifter was excellent and so is Santana IV... as for the collab of this year with the Isley Brothers, it's OK - not my kind of stuff, but the standard is relatively high, iMHO.
 
as for Gong, I wouldn't put them in, as there is not enough good stuff to really set them in the top category: Zero to Infinitea is rather good, but Acid Mother was really not, 2032 is simply execrable, I See You was just OK (but no more), and Rejoice! has a few good tracks (the longer ones, thankfully)

No prob mr whoof.
I'm with you a great deal of the way regarding Magma although I vastly prefer their (live) 70s output. Van Damme not so much. I'm a little weird like that as I prefer ALT to anything else they've done since reforming.

The only artist that springs to mind other than Faust right this minute is Franco Battiato. The joint venture he did with Pinaxa in 2014 is absolutely stunning. Sorta like a return to his first 4 experimental albums though married together with soomething akin to IDM and this velvety form of ambient. Still sports those floating mellotron whiffs, the all important larval sounding organs as well as the man's angelic quivering vocals.

^ I forgot about Gong. I disagree with most. I See You is definately as brilliant as the Radio Gnome Triology in my book. The last one was just ok.

Yes most recent From Silence to Somewhere is a real return to form. Haven't sounded this good and revitalised since Rites At Dawn only on this new one they seem to have been joined by John Wetton and Tony Banks. Great times for an aging group methinks
