Since debuting with “Highway Tune” in 2017, Greta Van Fleet has been touted as the future of rock. That’s a heavy burden for any new act to carry, but the Detroit four-piece has proven to be up to the monumental task with a string of blistering singles, a killer EP and a show-stealing performance at Coachella. Needless to say, expectations are sky-high for their debut album. The intriguingly-titled Anthem Of The Peaceful Army arrives on October 19 and it’s shaping up to be a cracker.
Surprisingly, the album doesn’t contain any material from 2017’s critically-acclaimed From The Fires. Instead, we’re treated to 10 new tracks including the furious lead single, “When The Curtain Falls,” and recent buzz track, “Watching Over.” (It seems the digital release also includes an alternate version of “Lover, Leaver”). Anthem Of The Peaceful Army was produced by Marlon Young, Al Sutton and Herschel Boone, and recorded at the Blackbird Studios in Nashville and Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak, Michigan. See the full tracklist below.
