First Single, "Highway Tune", Impacting Rock Radio Now

GRETA VAN FLEET, the rising young rock band that is making some of the most buzzed-about, high-energy rock'n'roll music heard in a long time, heads back on the road beginning June 9 with a series of club headline dates and summer/fall festivals that include stops at Milwaukee's Summerfest (July 1), Louisville's Louder Than Life (October 1), and the Rock Allegiance in Camden, NJ (October 7). These dates follow the band's six May concerts opening for THE STRUTS - GVF's first-ever tour dates - that had audiences cheering and applauding for the band long after their set ended and they left the stage, and prompted Indianapolis's alt/weekly NUVO to write, "THE STRUTS ripped, but our photographer says the story for the night was the singer for GRETA VAN FLEET." Log on to gretavanfleet.com for all ticketing information.

These upcoming tour dates are in support of the band's debut EP Black Smoke Rising (released April 21 on Lava Records) and first single, "Highway Tune", that is impacting rock radio now. But radio has not waited for the label's green light to program the track; "Highway Tune" is already being played on 29 rock and alternative stations across the country, and made its MediaBase debut this week at #45, a week before the track is serviced to radio. Two weeks ago, "Highway Tune" debuted at #59 on Detroit's powerhouse WRIF-FM playlist; last week it skyrocketed to #5, this week it's occupying the #4 spot. In addition, "Highway Tune" has been in "Hyper Rotation" at SiriusXM's Octane for weeks. GRETA VAN FLEET has also been confirmed to guest on the syndicated radio programs "Sixx Sense," "Jonesy's Jukebox," "2 Hours w/ Matt Pinfield," and the "Mancow Morning Show."

With many more dates coming, GRETA VAN FLEET's confirmed itinerary is as follows:

  • 6.9 - Ribfest Chicago, Chicago, IL
  • 6.11 - Riverbend Festival, Chattanooga, TN
  • 6.17 - Off-Road Festival, Carson City, NV
  • 6.22 - The Hi-Fi, Indianapolis, IN (headline)
  • 6.23 - Route 20 Outhouse, Sturtevant, WI (headline)
  • 6.24 - Shake the Lake, Madison, WI
  • 7.1 - Summerfest, Milwaukee, WI
  • 7.3 - Nat'l Cherry Festival, Traverse City, MI
  • 7.14 - Red River Valley Fair, West Fargo, ND
  • 9.30 - WJJO - Sonic Boom Festival, Janesville, WI
  • 10.1 - Louder Than Life, Louisville, KY
  • 10.7 - Rock Allegiance, Camden, NJ
GRETA VAN FLEET is four young men, two are 18, two just turned 21; three are brothers, two of them are twins, and one best friend, all from the idyllic Michigan village of Frankenmuth (pop. 5000). They write and perform all of their own music; influences are varied, much of them rooted in their parents' vast vinyl collections - Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Tchaikovsky, John Lee Hooker, The Who, and The Yardbirds, as well as Robert Frost, The Lord of The Rings, Apocalypse Now, and Ernest Hemingway. GRETA VAN FLEET sound the way they sound, they play the way they play; what makes GRETA VAN FLEET's sound their own is that it's rooted in the band's own collective truth.
