Greta Van Fleet reveals which bands are an influence for their careers

In an interview with Billboard, Greta Van Fleet members said they already have plans for new music and revealed which bands are an influence to their career.


Bassist Sam Kiszka said about the band’s plans:

“A lot more writing, getting some stuff recorded and start working on the next thing.”

Asked if they’ll release new music, drummer Danny Wagner replied:

“Oh yeah, absolutely. I’ll quit if we don’t.”

Frontman Josh Kiszka chimed in:

“We’ll all quit; we’re parting ways if we don’t release new music.”

Josh talked out about the group’s success:

“We’re so humbled by the fact we have those opportunities that not many other people have.”

Asked on who they look to as examples for how to navigate the scene comfortably, the singer replied:

“Those are the pinnacle bands that can do that, especially the Eagles. There are other rock bands that have the appeal, like the Foo Fighters.”
