Greta Van Fleet made its debut appearance Jan. 19 in New York on “Saturday Night Live.” The multi-Grammy nominees performed two songs during the 2019 premiere of the popular NBC late-night comedy show, including the single “You're the One,” as well as the title track from its 2017 EP “Black Smoke Rising.”
Fans who missed the “When the Curtain Falls” hitmakers on “SNL” catch check out a stream of the performance of the band's 2019 Grammy-nominated song “Black Smoke Rising,” which was posted Jan. 20 via YouTube. The Michigan-based rocker's rare TV appearance was in continued support of its chart-topping studio album Anthem of the Peaceful Army, which dropped Oct. 19, 2018, via Republic.
As the clip opens, the 70s retro-rockers receive huge whoops and screams from the “SNL” studio audience, following an intro from “SNL” first-time host Rachel Brosnahan. GVF guitarist Jake Kiszka riffs through the open chord sequence of the mid-tempo rocker to set up the first verse with brother Josh Kiszka singing, “Did you know there was a tower/Where they look out to the land.”
