Greta Van Fleet’s debut single “Highway Tune,” was released in March 2017, was #1 at U.S. Rock Radio for five consecutive weeks and #1 at Canadian radio for nine consecutive weeks, has amassed a combined 45-million Spotify plays and 17.7+-million YouTube views for the companion video. Their follow up single “Safari Song” also went to #1 at U.S. Rock Radio and a record-setting 16 straight weeks at #1 at Canadian radio. Rolling Stone singled the band out as one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” Loudwire readers voted them “Best New Artist,” and Entertainment Weekly named them one of the “8 artists who will rule 2018.”
And, Sir Elton John, a fan of the band, personally asked them to perform at his annual Academy Awards viewing party set for early March, having said, “It’s the best rock and roll I’ve heard in twenty f**king years!”
Greta Van Fleet’s shared message with their music is to spread “peace, love and unity,” and their collective goal in terms of their live shows is to have people "walk out of the show feeling invigorated, energized, exhilarated, and to take that feeling out into the world.” The band will release its debut album later this year.
