Rock band Greta Van Fleet have announced the release date of their debut album alongside additional dates to their already expansive tour. Greta Van Fleet will make their way to New York City’s Terminal 5 this November 27, 29, and 30 after spending the fall touring across the US and Europe. Their highly anticipated album, Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, is officially slated to drop October 19. The album follows the incredible success of their first single, “Highway Tune” and their EP Black Smoke Rising. In anticipation of their upcoming album, the band has released their latest single, “Watching Over,” an explosive anthem that delivers high hopes for the young band’s full length album. The album was written collectively by all four members of the band – which consists of the three Kiszka brothers and drummer Danny Wagner – and features a 10 song tracklist. The band had much to include when discussing the album’s themes in a recent statement: “Fresh starts, love, integrity, innocence, adventure, diversity and peace, the life cycle and its inherent responsibilities, courage, masked deceptions, revolution, and truth.”
Rock is a ambiguous word in the US these days, many bands dipping to one end of the spectrum from indie to heavy rock. Newcomers on the scene, Greta Van Fleet, have disproved any naysayers, emerging as a rock band with sounds similar to Led Zeppelin although the band denies any accusation of copying Led Zeppelin and receives inspiration from musicians all over the blues, soul, and folk variety. The band has reached notoriety before even releasing their debut album, already selling out a majority of their shows and booking extra nights due to high demand. Their tour this fall takes the band through Europe and the UK before arriving back stateside, culminating with two sold out hometown shows on December 29 and 30 in Detroit. Greta Van Fleet have also climbed the ranks of festival bills, playing sets this fall at iHeart Radio Festival and Austin City Limits.
Don’t miss Greta Van Fleet this November as they play New York City for three nights in support of their debut album. Tickets are on sale now.
