“Highway Tune” (Lava Records), the debut single from Greta Van Fleet, one of the most buzzed-about new rock bands on the scene today, has just attained the #1 spot on the U.S. Active and Mainstream Rock Radio charts, and #1 on the Canadian Active Rock Radio chart. This milestone comes just as the band is wrapping up Leg One of its first U.S. tour with all dates completely sold out, the single at more than 3.8-million Spotify plays, and the companion music video closing in on 2-million YouTube views.

Greta Van Fleet is four young musicians with killer musical chops and a singer whose vocal range and skill are simply jaw-dropping, who are breathing new life into exciting, unadulterated, high-energy rock music.  If “Highway Tune” isn’t on your radar yet, then click HERE to check it out.

In addition to a slew of headline dates, Leg Two of the 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 three major radio shows – WRIF-FM’s Riff Fest in Detroit, WJJO-FM’s Sonic Boom in Madison, WI, and KEGL’s Freakers’ Ball in Dallas.  All dates are in support of the band’s debut EP, Black Smoke Rising (Lava Records) that hit #1 on both the American and Canadian iTunes Rock charts.
