With the band’s new single, “When The Curtain Falls”, already Top 10 at rock radio and nearly eight million streams to its credit, GRETA VAN FLEET presents the companion music video, a performance piece that finds the band in an esoteric foreign landscape filled with mystical symbolism, celestial events and otherworldly psychedelia. Filmed in Southern California and conceived and directed by acclaimed visual effects artist Benjamin Kutsko (“The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button”, “Iron Man”), the video can be seen below.
GRETA VAN FLEET performed “When The Curtain Falls” for the first time ever on the July 26 episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. The band’s full-length debut is tentatively due before the end of the 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.”
