K!1743 – Greta Van Fleet: The Unstoppable Rise Of Rock’s Next Superstars
Greta Van Fleet might just be the hottest new band in the whole world. On the eve of releasing their exceptional debut album Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, we join the quartet on the cliffs of the Rocky Mountains to talk about revitalising rock’n’roll one riff at a time, and what it feels like to be on the edge of glory…
We’ve also got an exclusive Greta Van Fleet art print for your walls (y’know, just in case they’re lacking in far-out psychedelic visuals), courtesy of the awesome folk at WeThreeClub.
Elsewhere in the mag, twenty one pilots dig even deeper into the intricacies of their creative process and the concerns that come with being one of the biggest bands in the world, while Bristol punks Idles take us inside their new album Joy As An Act Of Resistance, and how nothing is beyond redemption. On top of that, State Champs frontman Derek Discanio reveals that songs that make him cry and the songs that make him, er, really cry, The Smashing Pumpkins explain how the future’s never been brighter, and Coheed And Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez gets put through his paces in our career-spanning Kerrang! Interview.
In the reviews section, meanwhile, Tom Morello recruits EDM and hip-hop pals for more songs to fan the flames of discontent, and twenty one pilots return with their most ambitious work to date. On the live front, Sin City art-rockers Palaye Royale crank up the heat at their sold-out Scottish debut, The Struts hit New York, and Deafheaven get crushingly introspective in Manchester.
All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, October 10 from all good newsagents.
Yep, twenty one pilots are up to something again…
Rook – drummer for MGK – was reportedly “robbed, assaulted and hit by a car” in Hollywood on Tuesday evening.
