Greta Van Fleet Sets New Airplay Record In Canada
Greta Van Fleet has set a new airplay record on Canadian radio, according to Consequence Of Sound. The band's current single, "When The Curtain Falls," has spent 13 weeks at Number One on rock radio in the Great White North, following similar stretches in the top spot by previous singles "Highway Tune" and "Safari Song." The three tracks combined have kept Greta Van Fleet at Number One on the Canadian airwaves for a total of 27 weeks in 2018, breaking a calendar year record previously shared by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam. Greta Van Fleet released its debut full-length album, Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, on October 19th, landing at Number Three on the Billboard 200 chart with 87,000 copies sold. The disc followed two previous EPs and the breakout song "Highway Tune," which first put the quartet on the map in 2017. Greta Van Fleet will finish up its 2018 touring with multi-night stints in Chicago and Detroit, also playing a two-night stand in Seattle in early January. A new North American tour will start next May 7th in Miami.
