The Michigan outfit kicked off 2019 for the series, yet were definitely not festive, playing out their Grammy-nominated hit “Black Smoke Rising” and new single “You’re the One” with lifeless anonymity.
Frontman Josh Kiszka, specifically, was incredibly stoic and showed up overshadowed by the vacuous stage. As a matter of fact, things enhanced for “You’re the One”, yet they’ll wanna take a shot at their stage show on the off chance that they have any expectations of jamming in the future with Macca.
Obviously, it didn’t help that they were trolled by Weekend Update’s Colin Jost, who joked:“Sunday night will bring a Super Blood Wolf Moon, which is a rare lunar eclipse, and not, as I had assumed, the name of the band that just performed on our show!”
In related news, Kiszka spoke to Rolling Stone about “setting some ground work” for the band’s follow-up to a year ago’s debut, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, which they would like to release in 2019. As he explained, “We can’t wait to explore a little more of the Greta Van Fleet universe.”
