Greta Van Fleet, which just was named Best New Artist last night at the Loudwire Music Awards, will release “From the Fires,” an eight-song double EP, on Nov. 10 (Lava/Republic Records).
“From the Fires” will feature on one disc four new Greta Van Fleet recordings, as well as the four tracks from the band’s breakout EP, “Black Smoke Rising,” including “Highway Tune,” the band’s debut single that spent five consecutive weeks at NO. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Radio charts. The four new tracks were recorded last month at Rust Belt Studios in Detroit and produced by the same duo that produced Black Smoke Rising earlier this year, Al Sutton and Marlon Young.

Vocalist Josh Kiszka said compiling the four “Black Smoke Rising” tracks with the four new recordings made for an ideal grouping. “All eight of these songs share a theme of basic humanity,” he said.
“From the Fires” will be available both digitally and as a physical disc. Fans who already have purchased the “Black Smoke Rising” tracks via iTune are invited to complete their”From the Fires” double EP at a special price. Log onto iTunes for those details.
The cover art for”From the Fires” was conceived by Kiszka, who said, “When we were all kids, our extended families and friends spent part of every summer together at a place called Yankee Springs. We were out in the middle of the woods, and every night, we’d sit around a campfire, play music and tell stories. I always loved that as it reminded me of ancient times when people would gather around the fires with the tribes’ elders telling fables of wisdom and courage, passing down human history. That concept is where the cover art and title come from.”
