The past year for Greta Van Fleet has been a whirlwind, and the band clearly has no interest in pumping the brakes.
In a new interview with Australia’s Heavy Magazine, bassist Sam Kiszka says the band, “…all decided earlier this month that we need to do a record as soon as possible. So, the one thing I can say right now is that you can definitely expect album two in 2019.”
When asked about how the band is looking at their second LP through the “sophomore slump” lens, Kiszka responded, “I think that if you think about it too much, then it becomes unnatural, and it’s very easy to be caught up in that.”
He continued, “So, yeah, I think we’re just gonna do what we do, and we’re gonna make the music that we wanna hear, and we’re gonna grow musically. There’s a lot of stuff that we’re working on right now that’s very exciting and very new and we’re going places that we’ve never been before — literally and figuratively. But I think album two is going to be very worldly.”
Greta Van Fleet is currently on the other side of the world in Australia touring with The Struts, but they will be returning stateside very soon to attend the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 8.
The band is up for four GRAMMYs, including Best New Artist. So far, it’s not been announced whether Greta Van Fleet will perform on “Music’s Biggest Night.” Hopefully, fans will get to watch them take home at least one GRAMMY
