Greta Van Fleet is gearing up for Battle once more.

Speaking with Consquence, drummer Danny Wagner reveals that the “Highway Tune” rockers are “wrapping [a new album] up as we speak.”

“It’s nearing completion, and we’re very excited about it,” Wagner adds of the upcoming record.

In regards to the effort’s direction, bassist Sam Kiszka reveals, “It’s conceptually going back to almost the days in the garage, with the raw energy of the sound.”

“But expanding on that because we’re the best musicians we’ve ever been,” he explains.

The next Greta Van Fleet album will mark the band’s third full-length studio release, following 2018’s Anthem of the Peaceful Army and 2021’s The Battle at Garden’s Gate. The group’s spent much of 2022 touring behind Battle, though they had to postpone a number of shows due to a variety of health problems, including frontman Josh Kiszka‘s ruptured eardrum.

Meanwhile, Greta Van Fleet just opened for Metallica‘s acoustic Helping Hands benefit concert last Friday, and they’ll be opening select 2024 dates on the metal legends’ world stadium tour.
