Greta Van Fleet
with Goodbye June
The future of rock and roll is here, and they call themselves Greta Van Fleet.
Hard-rocking Michigan quartet will perform their skyrocketing new single and critically-acclaimed EP live at the F.M. Kirby Center on Friday, August 25 at 8:00 p.m. as part of the "Live from the Chandelier Lobby" concert series, presented by City Market and Café.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 30 at 10:00 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, by phone at (570) 826-1100 and online at www.kirbycenter.org. A Kirby Member Pre-Sale begins tomorrow, Thursday, June 29 at 10:00 a.m.
On their debut EP Black Smoke Rising, Greta Van Fleet deftly straddles the line between timeless and future, sounding at once like many things you’ve heard before and also something you’ve never heard before.
The three brothers – twins Josh (vocals) and Jake (guitar) Kiszka, younger brother Sam Kiszka (bass, keyboards) and drummer Danny Wagner – have turned their rich and varied musical background into an arresting mélange of rock and roll with flavors of metal, pop, blues, and grunge.
And people are listening.
The band released the single "Highway Tune" in March of 2017, just two months after it was featured in the hit Showtime series, "Shameless." In April, they were named Apple Music's new artist of the week, and the single was placed into heavy rotation on rock radio stations across the country.
Black Smoke Rising is slated to be the first of three EPs that will eventually be released as the group's first full length studio album.
For the youngsters from a small town in Michigan, it's all happening quickly. But it's all happening.
“It’s definitely overwhelming and exciting – and it’s awesome,” Wagner said. “All these things are happening – the record deal, management, William Morris (booking agency). It’s slowly starting to build up, and we’re starting to get that fever.
We’re itching to show everybody who we are and what we can do."
Rahway and Goodbye June will be supporting Greta Van Fleet.
Greta Van Fleet is presented by 97.9 the X.
