Greta Van Fleet land #1 album on Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart with ‘Anthem of The Peaceful Army’
Michigan young rockers Greta Van Fleet have achieved a huge milestone with their first #1 album on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.
HER PR‘s press release states in part:
“Anthem of the Peaceful Army (Lava Records/Republic Records), the full-length debut by Frankenmuth, Michigan’s Greta Van Fleet, enters the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #1. The album also came in at #1 on Billboard‘s Top Rock Albums and Rock Consumption charts, and #3 on Billboard Top 200 chart. In addition, the album made impressive international debuts: #1 in Canada, #3 in Germany, Top 10 in Australia and New Zealand, and Top 15 in the UK.
“Music has always been a centerpiece in all four of our lives,” said the band’s Jake Kiszka, “even when we were very young, when we first started hearing our parents’ blues, folk, and R&B records. So to be able to create the music we love, that so many people are hearing and responding to, is truly an honor.””
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of the album Anthem Of The Peaceful Army:
“Greta Van Fleet are seemingly at the root of a possible rock n’ roll resurgence. While other bands struggle to sell albums and get people out to their concerts, the Michigan youngsters seem to sell out venues left and right throughout North America in record time. Greta Van Fleet‘s brand of Led Zeppelin rock n’ roll seems to be getting lapped up, which is a great thing. Considering that Led Zeppelin called it quits back in 1980, I think it’s time to accept that although Greta Van Fleet may sound a heck of a lot like Led Zeppelin, it has been almost 40 years since the pioneer group has released a new studio album. Accordingly, although Greta Van Fleet may sound like an excellent Led Zeppelin tribute band playing its own original material, I don’t really care about the Led Zeppelin similarities as long as the music holds up.
Anthem Of The Peaceful Army is a pretty good album but doesn’t justify the hype that Greta Van Fleet are receiving. That being said, I am glad that Greta Van Fleet are receiving so much press and adulation because good quality hard rock deserves to be at the forefront of the music world again and if Greta Van Fleet are the catalysts in that regard, so be it.”
