As Greta Van Fleet continue to spread their music around the globe, Jake and Sam took some time out to give a short interview with DC101 at Kerfuffle Festival on the 19th May to talk about the second album and taking some time out to reflect.

It looks like Greta Van Fleet are focused on album number 2 and we could be in for something different as they take a step back from their inner circle to reflect on their careers and music.

“It’s going well we’ve been able to get a little distance in terms of traveling so we went to South American and Japan and Australia since then...we’ve done a lot of shows in different places and it’s been really cool we also got a nice opportunity to remove ourselves and stick the four of us in the woods and start asking questions about album two...we’ve made a good heading on that”
“We actually picked the foothills of the Tennessee mountain range [to take some time out]”

“I think you really need to [reflect] and now we’re back at it pretty hard especially with this US tour which we haven’t really played a lot of US shows this year so it feels really good to be back on home ground.”

“In order to go about doing album two there’s an importance on self-reflection and when we step outside of that we look at existentially we kind of understand what we want to do next and I think that’s been a large importance moving forward now”

When discussing the process of approaching the next record, the guys shared their views on how it can affect them. “You're most vulnerable when you sit back and reflect on things” also saying “We’re lucky to do what we do”.
