THE B-SIDE
Greta Van Fleet (Lava/Republic)
9/26/17


WHAT IT IS:
The band is made up of four young musicians—brothers Josh (vocals, 21), Jake (guitar, 21) and Sam Kiszka (bass/keys, 18), and best friend Danny Wagner (drums, 18)—from tiny Frankenmuth, Michigan, which is known for having the world’s largest Christmas store. And these guys are making some of the most exciting, high-energy, sweaty, sexy rock’n’roll heard in a long time. They’re bound and determined to bring real rock back to the mainstream. With their debut single “Highway Tune”—#1 at Active and Mainstream Rock radio—more than 2m YouTube views, 4.5m Spotify plays, their first-ever, completely sold-out U.S. tour and spectacular praise from the media, Greta Van Fleet has become (in just a few months) as hot as a brand new band can be.
