LOS ANGELES, CA – (Monday, October 29, 2018) — Anthem of the Peaceful Army (Lava Records/Republic Records), the full-length debut by Frankenmuth, Michigan’s Greta Van Fleet, enters the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #1. The album also came in at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Rock Consumption charts, and #3 on Billboard Top 200 chart. In addition, the album made impressive international debuts: #1 in Canada, #3 in Germany, Top 10 in Australia and New Zealand, and Top 15 in the UK.
“Music has always been a centerpiece in all four of our lives,” said the band’s Jake Kiszka, “even when we were very young, when we first started hearing our parents’ blues, folk, and R&B records. So to be able to create the music we love, that so many people are hearing and responding to, is truly an honor.”
