LOS ANGELES, CA – Wednesday, July 26, 2017 — Exploding at radio, press, online and in concert, one of the hottest new rock bands today, Greta Fan Fleet announces additional dates for its first-ever headline U.S. tour kicking off August 15 in Columbus, Ohio.  Three months ago, unless you were locked into the local Michigan music scene, you’d never heard of this band, but today, Greta Van Fleet is erupting with their debut single “Highway Tune” currently #7 at Active and Mainstream Rock radio, a companion video that has sailed past 850,000 YouTube views, and already a number of sold-out shows on the August/September headline run to its credit.  Tickets for the new dates will be on sale this Friday, July 28 at 10AM local time.  Log onto gretavanfleet.com for purchasing information.

In addition to the band’s headline dates, Greta Van Fleet’s tour will include stops at several major rock festivals including Louisville’s Louder Than Life, Rock Allegiance in Camden, NJ, Houston’s Open Air, the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, and two major radio shows, WRIF-FM’s Riff Fest in Detroit, and Madison, WI’s WJJO’-FMs Sonic Boom Festival.

Greta Van Fleet – brothers Josh (vocals), Jake (guitar) and Sam Kiszka (bass, keyboards) and best friend drummer Danny Wagner – are dedicated to bringing real rock’n’roll back to the mainstream.  The band delivers high-energy, sweaty, sexy rock’n’roll loaded with attitude and bravado that exemplifies each band member’s killer musical chops and Josh’s simply jaw-dropping voice.  Their four-song debut EP Black Smoke Rising was released on April 21 and has accrued some pretty impressive press notices, with Michigan’s MLive music critic John Gonzalez posing the question, “Is America’s next greatest rock band from Michigan?”
