Greta Van Fleet to make their Saturday Night Live debut on first episode of 2019

on January 07, 2019, 3:26pm

Greta Van Fleet have been announced as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live’s first episode of 2019. The Michigan quartet will make their debut SNL appearance on January 19th alongside host Rachel Brosnahan, who just won a Golden Globe for her eponymous role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The designation is another threshold of success rapidly cleared by the throwback rockers, who recently scored a Billy Corgan cosign. Their debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, was a breakout hit upon its arrival last fall — despite a certain level of critical dismissal. The band also earned four Grammy nominations and has already revealed plans to record new music in 2019.
