Starcatcher: “A dangerous and delightful expedition”
After securing the 8th position on the Billboard 200 chart on its debut, Starcatcher didn’t stop there as it quickly climbed to the top spot on the Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums, and Top Rock & Alternative Albums charts.
This success wasn’t limited to the United States alone; Starcatcher also achieved significant international recognition. It reached No. 2 in Germany, Switzerland, No. 4 in Belgium, No. 6 in Austria, No. 7 in the Netherlands, No. 8 in the U.K., No. 18 in Italy, and No. 19 in Canada. The record is Greta Van Fleet’s second top 10 album, after their 2021 release, The Battle At Garden’s Gate.
Regarding the new album, lead vocalist Josh Kiszka shared his perspective, describing Starcatcher as a “dangerous and delightful expedition into a both violent and gentle dreamlike landscape. A purgatory of duality where brutality and beauty clash like a thunderstorm of stillness.”
Kizska continued to describe the sonic landscape as a place where “neither fact nor fiction inhabit the far reaches of this surrealist world. A storybook for the fighters and lovers alike ‘Starcatcher’ captures a certain wonder on the fringe of mayhem.”
“We wanted to tell these stories to build a universe”
Starcatcher was a collaborative effort by the band, featuring brothers Josh, Jake, and Sam Kiszka (vocals, guitar, bass, respectively), and drummer Danny Wagner. They joined forces with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb, known for his work with artists like Chris Stapleton and Brandi Carlile.
Recorded at the renowned RCA Studios in Nashville, the band harnessed the spacious recording environment to capture the raw energy characteristic of their world-famous live performances. Throughout the album’s ten tracks, the band, as Josh pointed out, explores the dichotomy between fantasy and reality, diving into the interplay between light and darkness.
“We had this idea that we wanted to tell these stories to build a universe,” Wagner shared, expressing their desire to use their music to do so.
Wagner continued that Greta Van Fleet aims to introduce characters, motifs, and ideas that would weave in and out throughout their career, thereby creating a world that continues to evolve and inspire.
