Greta Van Fleet’s ‘Pretty Far Into’ Next Album Will Be ‘A Little More Raw’

Greta Van Fleet have really made a name for themselves over the past few years, and are one of the more popular young rock bands on tour today. During a new interview, bass player Sam Kiszka revealed that the band are “pretty far into” their third studio album and that it will sound more like what they created in their days as a garage band.

The rockers have had a fantastic touring year opening for Metallica for a handful of shows and also embark on their own headlining tour with a variety of supporting acts. Their latest album The Battle of the Garden’s Gate was released in April 2021, and Kiszka, who is the youngest of the three brothers in the band, explained during an interview that he hopes it is “thought-provoking” for his listeners.

“We listen to a lot of stuff, not by choice, on certain radio stations, it’s ‘popular music’ and there’s no substance. They tell you exactly what to think and why,” the bassist declared during an episode of Kyle Meredith’s Consequence podcast. “And they don’t leave anything to mystery. And it almost insults people’s intelligence. And it doesn’t give you the opportunity to have your brain go off and start firing creatively.”

As far as the follow-up to The Battle of the Garden’s Gate says the bassist wasn’t able to shed too much light on it yet, but he did confirm that they’re almost done with it.

“Now it’s time to get creative and figure out something else because we’ve always wanted to make that album – we’ve always wanted to make garden gate, and we did,” he said. “But we already knew what was next, we’re actually working on it right now, album three. We’re pretty far into it and I can’t say too much about it, but it’s like the whole concept of going back to almost the roots of what we were doing. Kind of bringing our heads back to that garage time and not spending all this time making it perfect, but just capturing what’s going on and embellishing it and making it exciting and raw.”
