A new “very worldly” Greta Van Fleet album is coming this year

The US band only released their debut LP in October

Greta Van Fleet are set to release yet another new album in 2019, the group’s bassist has confirmed.

The Michigan band unveiled their debut full-length, ‘Anthem Of The Peaceful Army’, in October last year. Reviewing the album, NME said: “Greta Van Fleet really love rock’n’roll and they really want you to love it, too. By the time this record plays out, they may well have achieved their goal.”

Now, after hinting that its follow-up could emerge at some point this year, the band’s bassist Sam Kiszka has revealed that LP2 is “definitely” coming over the next 11 months.

We were actually talking, and we all decided earlier this month that we need to do a record as soon as possible,” Kiszka told Heavy Mag during their first tour of Australia.

“So the one thing I can say right now is that you can definitely expect album two in 2019.”

He continued: I’m very excited about it. I think that if you think about it too much, then it becomes unnatural, and it’s very easy to be caught up in that. So, yeah, I think we’re just gonna do what we do, and we’re gonna make the music that we wanna hear, and we’re gonna grow musically.

“There’s a lot of stuff that we’re working on right now that’s very exciting and very new and we’re going places that we’ve never been before – literally and figuratively. But I think album two is going to be very worldly.”

Discussing how visiting new locations has influenced the sound of the upcoming material, Kiszka said: “Touring the world – seeing Japan, seeing Australia – and having all these new experiences, in a way, those sounds of… the colours of our mind get put into the record like that.

“This only skyrockets our creativity, because we get to see so many beautiful things that we’ve never seen before. This is a great life.”

Meanwhile,  Greta Van Fleet are scheduled to embark on a UK tour in March.
