Greta Van Fleet – Jake Kiszka/guitars, Sam Kiszka/bass & keys, Josh Kiszka/vocals, and Danny Wagner/drums – is very proud to announce the upcoming release of the band’s debut album, Anthem of The Peaceful Army, due out October 19th on Lava/Republic Records. The album is available for pre-order now by going here. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant grat track, the brand new song Watching Over, that you can check out here.

Collectively written by all four band members, the ten original songs explore a variety of topics that include fresh starts, love, integrity, innocence, adventure, diversity and peace, the life cycle and its inherent responsibilities, courage, masked deceptions, revolution, and truth. Blending rock, soul and blues, Jake’s blazing guitar riffs, Josh’s soaring, powerful vocals, Danny’s thunderous drums, and Sam’s swaggering baselines and keys create a menagerie of musical elements throughout.

The first single from Anthem of the Peaceful Army, When The Curtain Falls, arrived at rock radio on August 15th and is already a Top 10 track with more than 13-million total audio streams. The song’s companion music video has surpassed 1.7-million views and can be seen below.

    Bon Soir (that is “good evening” in French) Craig,

    I have always had two Led Zep albums in my permanent collection, (2 & 4). Other than that, I complied a Dana’s “best of,” from the rest of their remaining catalog. So, while I am versed in Zeppelin, I admit, that I am not an aficionado.

    I would literally have to listen to every GVF, and Led Zeppelin song, to give you an exact answer, and there may not be one. One GVF’s songs, could take different parts from a myriad of Zeppelin tunes, and put them together to make a whole “new” song. For example, using a sped up guitar into of The Rover, while using similar vocals to The Immigrant Song (kind of like Highway Tune does). Even Robert Plant has made comment on their sound: Here they are doing Zeppelin:

    Also, even the titles of their songs are an homage to Zeppelin: When The Curtain Falls/When The Levee Breaks, Mountain of the Sun/Misty Mountain Hop, The New Day/Celebration Day, etc.

    As for what I am listening to now, I have not listened to anything in almost a week. The last song I remember listening to was, Richie Kotzen’s, The Damned, which I am obsessed with, and think is beyond GREAT. Before that? It was probably vintage Def Lep (High N’ Dry, Pyromania). Also, no matter what I am listening to, I always have to play at least one Priest song (my favorite band). I think the last one I chose was Desert Plains. It’s a bit late here, but I suddenly got in the mood for Stevie Ray Vaughn’s, In Step, and for my one Priest song, I am feeling, You Don’t Have To Be Old To Be Wise.

    As for Sykes, how dare you slight the man, who according to Eddie, cites Gary Moore and Randy Rhoads as his heroes? Shame on you-LOL!!

    Anywho, have a great night and au revior (that’s French for goodbye 😉 )

    All my best,
    D 🙂

    Seems to me a lot of the friction from people about Zep vs GVF is generational. I get they sound similar, but so what? I certainly hear a lot more than Zep in this new song.

    Cheers to them and Kudos.

    Doug, I love you, but I got to tell you that football is the greatest team sport. And it definitely has surpassed baseball as “America’s pastime”. Now, I am biased, cuz I love the sport! :o) I played football as a kid, played it in high school, and I regret not trying it as a collegiate “walk on”.

    I never could get into hockey….perhaps because living in Southern California it wasn’t a major sport here???? I don’t like the fighting which appears to be acceptable in hockey, and I have a hard time following that small puck on the ice. Hockey somewhat has a similar strategy to football, but it sure ain’t football!!

    But hockey sticks were the inspiration for the headstock shape of Jackson guitars, so I am thankful to hockey for that! :o)

      Yo bro, it’s cool, no worries! Like our Judas Priestess/Metal Goddess always says – to each their own! Rock on paisan!! 😉

    I have really tried to like and embrace this young band , but like some of the other replies, I have heard this all before only done much better , mimicking zeppelin will only get them so far , they will need to come up with their own sound and drop this “sound like zeppelin ” strategy like a bag of dirt if they want a real long lasting career –
