Michigan rockers Greta Van Fleet are no longer the best-kept secret in rock as the foursome from Frankenmuth are now earning recognition from music’s biggest critics. The band earned four Grammy nominations Friday morning when The Recording Academy announced the finalists for this year’s Grammy ceremony.

The band is nominated for:

  • Best New Artist
  • Best Rock Performance for “Highway Tune”
  • Best Rock Song for “Black Smoke Rising”
  • Best Rock Album for “From the Fires”

Greta Van Fleet release rockin' debut album, 'Anthem of The Peaceful Army'

The band issued a statement following the announcement, thanking fans.

“We are all so very honored and humbled to have been nominated for a Grammy Award, and so appreciative for the love and support we get from our fans, because we do what we do for them. All of the wonderful things that have happened to us over the past year, including these nominations, is because of our fans, The Peaceful Army," the band wrote.

It’s worth noting the nomination for Best Rock Album is for the band’s EP which was released in 2017 and not the their first full-length album “Anthem of The Peaceful Army” which was released in October. They face stiff competition in each category going up against artists such as Chris Cornell, Alice in Chains, Fall Out Boy, Twenty One Pilots and Weezer.

The band has been on tour for most of the past year and is closing out 2018 with a trio of shows at the Fox Theater in Detroit on Dec. 27, Dec. 29 and Dec. 30. As part of the statement issued Friday, the band also announced $1 from every ticket sold for the three Detroit shows will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation.

The 2019 Grammy ceremony will take place on Feb. 10 and will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
