Greta Van Fleet have premiered a new song, "When the Curtain Falls." You can check it out above.

The  bluesy number is the first single from the rapidly rising quartet's  highly anticipated, as-yet untitled debut album. The young, Frankenmuth,  Michigan-based group first came to prominence last year with their  debut EP, Black Smoke Rising, and its high-flying lead single,  "Highway Tune." Since then, the group's profile has risen exponentially,  with endorsements from the likes of Joe Satriani and a number of sell-out tour dates. 

When Guitar World asked Jake Kiszka—the band's guitarist—about the band's debut album earlier this year, he said that the album was going to be a "definitive statement."

“Our first studio EP, Black Smoke Rising,  was kind of a snapshot of where we were at the time, but the full album  is going to be the real deal," he continued. "I see it as a big-picture  look at where we are now and where we’re headed.”
