Greta Van Fleet performs "When The Curtain Falls" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on July 26, 2018.

Greta Van Fleet brought pure, unadulterated rock and roll back to the stage with their latest single, "When The Curtain Falls," during their blistering Tonight Show debut on Thursday night (July 26).    

Dressed in copious amounts of leather and unbuttoned shirts all around, the band ripped through the single with an unrelenting combination of hard-hitting drums, funky, distorted guitar solos and sky-high, impassioned vocals. The stage lights, flashing like they were straight out of a 1970s arena rock show, accented vocalist Josh Kiszka's crown of curly hair as he held one hand high into the air and belted out, "Nothin' else would I trade for this/ And just think I get paid for this..."

After the final notes were played, the band received a standing ovation from the audience. Later that night, Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter to express his own feelings about the night's show. "You guys CRUSHED it," he wrote.

The appearance comes just a few weeks after the single's release and right before the group's Panorama debut on July 29. Currently, the band is near the end of their worldwide tour, despite not having released a full-length album yet. The Michigan natives have been generating hype with their first two EPs, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires in the meantime.
