Greta Van Fleet share tracklist and title of debut album 'Anthem of the Peaceful Army'
The Michigan rockers tease their much awaited debut LP with a short clip revealing the title of the album, the tracklist and a snippet of new music.
The millennials' spearhead for classic rock revival, Greta Van Fleet have finally revealed the name of their highly anticipated debut album. The title of the LP, 'Anthem of the Peaceful Army', was revealed via a short teaser clip that the band released through their social media channels.
The clip, captioned with the words, "As the new day unfolds…," begins with a mighty philosophical voice-over prologue that discusses the transcendental power of music. "The power of music transcends sound itself," the clip begins. "Those of us who cannot hear it, feel it. Like the dancing of a heartbeat. As a reminder that humans love, and it was first in darkness, like a great drum in the mother's chest... the 'Anthem of a Peaceful Army," it concludes, as it is followed by a short clip of what could very well be a sneak peek into one of the new songs from the album.
At the end of the video, GVF reveal the tracklist of the album, which spans across 10 tracks and features the lead single 'When the Curtain Falls', which the band debuted earlier this July. Also worth noting is the track 'Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer)', which is a song that was written in the early days of Greta but failed to feature on both their EPs - 2016's 'Black Smoke Rising' and 2017's 'From the Fires'.
Details about Greta's debut full length album have been scarce, but in a recent interview with Loudwire bassist Sam Kiszka revealed: "We had all these songs we wrote three to five years ago that we were just going to put on the album. It very quickly became all new material, so I’d say about three-quarters of the songs are songs we wrote in the studio. It just happened very quickly, we got everything done in two weeks. We were aching to make this album.” In retrospect, the song 'Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer)' fits what Sam was talking about.
While no release date has been announced yet, some fans who received letters from the band for signing up to the 'Peaceful Army' are speculating that the album is due out on October 19.
