Starcatcher - the new album from Grammy-winning rock band Greta Van Fleet, is out now to extensive critical acclaim on Lava/Republic Records. The record makes its debut at #8 on the Billboard 200 chart and is #1 on Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums and Top Rock & Alternative Albums, plus it is charting internationally in Germany (#2), Switzerland (#2), Belgium (#4), Austria (#6), the Netherlands (#7), the UK (#8), Italy (#18) and Canada (#19). Starcatcher is the band’s second top 10 album, following 2021’s The Battle at Garden’s Gate.
Of the new album, lead singer Josh Kiszka states, “Starcatcher is a dangerous and delightful expedition into a both violent and gentle dreamlike landscape. A purgatory of duality where brutality and beauty clash like a thunderstorm of stillness. Neither fact nor fiction inhabit the far reaches of this surrealist world. A storybook for the fighters and lovers alike Starcatcher captures a certain wonder on the fringe of mayhem.”
Throughout the ten-song collection the band explores the duality of fantasy versus reality and the contrast between light and darkness. “We had this idea that we wanted to tell these stories to build a universe,” says drummer Daniel Wagner. “We wanted to introduce characters and motifs and these ideas that would come about here and there throughout our careers through this world.”
The band is currently on the road for their extensive Starcatcher World Tour. The tour includes stops at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York and The Forum in Los Angeles as well as London’s OVO Arena Wembley and more; see below for a complete list of dates. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE. The Starcatcher World Tour includes support from special guests Teddy Swims, Surf Curse and Mt. Joy. Of the live show Nashville.com states, “the big stage with duel catwalks, complemented by stunning pyrotechnics, created an electrifying atmosphere and some very happy fans.”
