GRETA VAN FLEET, one of the most buzzed-about new rock bands today, announces the "March Of The Peaceful Army" world tour and initial headline dates for 2019. These dates are in support of the band's debut album, "Anthem Of The Peaceful Army", which is due out October 19 (Lava/Republic). As part of the itinerary, the band will visit Australia for the first time, playing concerts in four cities beginning in Sydney on January 29. The band then heads to Europe in February and March for 12 dates, followed by four weeks of North American shows from early May to early June.
Music fans were first introduced to GRETA VAN FLEET — Josh Kiszka (vocals), Jake Kiszka (guitar), Sam Kiszka (bass, keyboards) and Danny Wagner (drums) — in March 2017 with the release of the band's debut single, "Highway Tune", which held the No. 1 position on U.S. rock radio chart for five consecutive weeks and on Canada's active rock radio chart for nine straight weeks. 2017 went on to be a wild ride of sold-out concerts in North America and Europe, glowing press, accolades from a slew of fellow artists from Elton John to Nikki Sixx to Justin Bieber, millions of YouTube video plays and Spotify streams, two No. 1 EPs, a gold record in Canada, and most importantly, the genesis of an extraordinary connection with their fans.

GRETA VAN FLEET is four young musicians. All are from the tiny Michigan hamlet of Frankenmuth known for its family-style chicken dinners and the world's largest Christmas store. All four were raised on their parents' extensive vinyl collections which helped give birth to the music they make today: a high-energy hybrid of rock'n'roll, blues and soul.
"Anthem Of The Peaceful Army"'s first radio track, "When The Curtain Falls", took a mere three weeks to explode into the Top 10 at rock radio and is currently at No. 3 on the rock radio charts. The song has accumulated more than 18.5 million streams, and four million-plus views of the track's companion music video.
GRETA VAN FLEET's shared message with their music is to spread "peace, love and unity," and their collective goal is to have people walk out of their live shows feeling invigorated, energized and exhilarated, and to take that feeling out into the world.
