                            Listen: Greta Van Fleet unveil new single 'When the Curtain Falls'

Michigan's most promising new act and the harbingers of the rock-revival Greta Van Fleet have unleashed their grand, sweeping new single on Tuesday. Titled 'When the Curtain Falls', it raises the curtains and gives us a first look at the highly anticipated debut album.

The new song arrives just in time to coincide with the launch of their US summer tour, and marks Greta Van Fleet's first new original release since 2017’s breakout double EP 'From the Fires'. Comprising twins Josh (vocals) and Jake Kizska (lead guitar), brother Sam Kizska (bass/keys), and best friend Danny Wagner (drums) and hailing from the sleepy little hamlet of Frankenmuth, MI, Greta Van Fleet have toured across both sides of the Pond, performed alongside legends like Elton John, hit a string of big festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and a headlining act at London's Electric Ballroom, gotten a nod of approval from the legendary Robert Plant himself (the band is being dubbed as the next Led Zeppelin) and they are yet to release their first full-length studio album — until now that is.

"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 in an interview. Well late summer is here and fall is just around the corner, so it looks like the wheels of the millenial rock bandwagon are going full-speed ahead.

The new song stays true to Greta's already established style, which eschews newer musical influences in favor of an old-school rock-oriented sound that is rare to find these days. Josh's distinctive howls and yelps steal the show yet again as it fights to soar over his brother's blistering riffs.

Lyrically speaking, the song seems to be penned from the point-of-view of a star-struck fan. "Well you’re so great and I love you so /You know I’m your biggest fan / I saw your picture and it’s the best / The finest in the land," Josh sings before launching into a typical GVF chorus. Check out the full song below:
