Greta Van Fleet: The Band Leading The Rock ‘N Roll Revival

Greta Van Fleet Tour Coming Your Way:

 

Thanks to the internet in the year 2018, it’s extremely easy to find talented, up-and-coming fresh bands. With that said, unless you’ve been living under a rock or sheltered in an underground bunker, you’ve probably got wind of a newer band, that’s been making it a habit of leaving audiences across the world in awe. Allow me to introduce the band that’s leading the Rock ‘N Roll revival, Greta Van Fleet. If you’re like me, you probably have a strong appreciation for the classics (ie: Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Doors, etc.) and the list goes on. So what makes Greta Van Fleet so special? Well many have tried to save rock music and most have failed, miserably but not Greta Van Fleet.

Greta Van Fleet’s debut single “Highway Tune” maintained the number 1 position for five straight weeks on the Billboard Rock charts, and set a record at Canadian rock radio with nine weeks at number one. The band consists of four young musicians, brother’s Josh (vocals), Jake (guitars) and Sam Kiszka (bass/keyboards) plus (drummer) Danny Wagner, and has been touring the world and appearing on every major festival you could think of all while winning over music lovers around the globe. They even caught the attention of the legendary Elton John who invited the band to perform at his annual Academy Awards viewing party and even performed with the young rock ‘n rollers.

The band’s debut EP Black Smoke Rises entered both the U.S and Canadian iTunes charts at number one. On November 10th, 2017 the band released it’s double EP titled From The Fires, which combined four new songs with four tracks from Black Smoke Rises. Greta Van Fleet is set to release their debut full length this year but for now you can picked up the EP HERE to hold you over!
