Emerging young Michigan rockers GRETA VAN FLEET made a late-night television premiere, performing their new single, “When The Curtain Falls” on the Thursday, July 26 episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. The video of the crunching and seamless performance by brothers Josh, Jake and Sam Kiszka, along with drummer Danny Wagner can be seen below.
The hot-buzzing Detroit-based four-piece band continues its meteoric ascension to fame, and they received a standing ovation after their first ever live performance of the single, on the heels of the tune’s official release last week. GRETA VAN FLEET‘s first full-length album is tentatively due later this year. “We’re reshaping it and then get into mastering and hopefully release it soon. It’s looking like late summer,” lead singer Josh Kiszka recently told MLive.
GRETA VAN FLEET drummer Danny Wagner recently told Musik Universe that his band doesn’t mind being regularly compared to LED ZEPPELIN by fans and music critics alike. “We get it a lot, but you know what? In the end, it’s such a high honor — it really is,” he said. “Being compared to anyone of a generation that’s nowhere of any relevance to yours is humbling alone, and the fact that these guys, to us, are prodigies — these guys are the real deal. These are the ones that we’ve never gotten to live to see, because we’re so young. And the fact that we’re being compared to them and it’s garnering so much attention, it’s honestly just a high honor to us at this point. We take it very humbly.”
Last month, GRETA VAN FLEET guitarist Jake Kiszka told FaceCulture that LED ZEPPELIN was not a major influence on the group despite close similarities between the two bands’ styles. He explained: “I think that we’ve become more conscious of it, because I don’t think before we ever really realized, in a lot of senses, the similarities or the commonalities that we share with that group.”
