Greta Van Fleet takes a trip to the desert in the new music video for “When the Curtain Falls.”
Directed by “Iron Man” visual effects artist Benjamin Kutsko, the video (above) cuts together footage of band members Josh Kiszka, Jake Kiszka, Sam Kiszka, and Danny Wagner performing atop a desert mountain with far-out imagery, including hooded figures, a burning tree, and a solar eclipse.
First released in mid-July, “When the Curtain Falls” has already been streamed millions of times and will appear on Greta Van Fleet’s forthcoming debut LP, reportedly expected to arrive before the end of the year.
It has already been a big year for the Michigan-based rock act, which has not only released several popular original tunes but also found success with a well-received cover of David Bowie’s “The Jean Genie,” recorded as part of Howard’s all-star tribute to the late, great rock and roll icon. “Trying to capture the flavor of that big rock and roll is what we, as Greta Van Fleet, love to do,” bass and keyboard player Sam explained of their cover.
In addition to finalizing their debut full-length studio effort, the band is also currently in the middle of a massive, multi-continent festival and solo tour, which includes Lollapalooza, Foo Fighters' Cal Jam Festival, and opening for Guns N' Roses in Europe.
