'Anthem' is the fourth single to drop from the band's highly anticipated debut album, previously released singles are 'When The Curtain Falls', 'Watching Over' & 'Lover, Leaver'.
Greta Van Fleet is not holding back with its singles in the lead up to their highly anticipated debut album, 'Anthem of the Peaceful Army'.
Having previously teased the album with singles 'When The Curtain Falls', 'Watching Over' and 'Lover, Leaver', the Michigan classic rock revivalists have now unveiled the fourth single from the album, titled 'Anthem'. Serving as the title track of the album, the acoustic ballad presents another face of the young band, which is usually known for it's loud and proud 60's styled rock anthems.
'Anthem' does away with the electric guitars as guitarist Jake Kiszka lays a jangly, mid-tempo riff that sounds straight out of a spaghetti western. His twin and vocalist Josh Kiszka is at the front and center of the acoustic ballad with his signature vocal style, but with fewer high pitched yelps and howls, and more actual singing! Doing the title of the song justice, it ends with a choral rendition of Josh's chorus, and is sure to become Greta's go to singalong stadium anthem. Listen to the song below:
Anthem of the Peaceful Army arrives on October 19, with pre-orders available here. The band is going to wrap-up a North American tour on October 11 in Madison, Wisconsin, before heading to Europe later this month, only to return to the States for a number of gigs beginning in late November.
