Greta Van Fleet have shared their new song, ‘When The Curtain Falls’. Listen to the track below.
The song is their first since the release of double EP ‘From the Fires’ from last year, and precedes a UK tour which kicks off this November.
Over the summer, the band have already played shows at Download Festival and Coachella, with Lollapalooza and Summer Sonic in the coming weeks.
The band recently refuted claims that were a Led Zeppelin “rip-off”. “It’s being said over and over, and I think it’s one of the greatest compliments that could ever be given to a young band like ourselves. They’re arguably one of the greatest rock bands of all time, so that is humbling and inspiring and honorable, in that sense,” guitarist Jake Kiszka telling FaceCulture.
“But I think that we’ve become more conscious of the similarities, because it’s been said, and I think we’ve taken some time to go back and almost identify with it. ‘Oh, it’s interesting, because there is a lot of those commonalities.”
Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant has expressed his love for the band in the past. “There’s a band in Detroit called Greta Van Fleet: they are Led Zeppelin I. Beautiful little singer, I hate him!” Plant said in March.
Speaking to NME rearding Plant’s comments the band expressed enthusiasm for the co-sign. “it was quite flattering,” Josh says. “I think he likes the stuff! That’s good, to kinda get that seal of approval.”
The band will return to the UK in November, see the dates below:
Kentish Town Forum, London (Nov 9, 11)
O2 Academy, Birmingham (Nov 14)
The Academy, Manchester (Nov 15)
