Greta Van Fleet Say They Are Releasing a New Album in 2019
"Album two is going to be very worldly"
Published Jan 29, 2019Led Zeppelin comparisons be damned, Greta Van Fleet are decidedly sick of your shit — so sick of it, that they're planning to release a follow-up to last year's Anthem of the Peaceful Army in 2019.
In a new interview, bassist Sam Kiszka confirmed to Heavy Mag that the band's sophomore LP is "definitely" arriving within the next 11 months.
"We were actually talking, and we all decided earlier this month that we need to do a record as soon as possible," Kiszka told the site ahead of their Australian tour. "So the one thing I can say right now is that you can definitely expect album two in 2019."
Kiszka added, "There's a lot of stuff that we're working on right now that's very exciting and very new and we're going places that we've never been before — literally and figuratively. But I think album two is going to be very worldly.
"Touring the world — seeing Japan, seeing Australia — and having all these new experiences, in a way, those sounds of… the colours of our mind get put into the record like that. This only skyrockets our creativity, because we get to see so many beautiful things that we've never seen before. This is a great life."
