It has been very pleasing to watch Toronto's Zeus gradually earn a significant international fan base for their brand of retro yet fresh-sounding classic rock. It is fitting that their keenly anticipated new album is enitled Classic Zeus. The follow-up to 2012's acclaimed Busting Visions, it's not out (on Arts & Crafts) until September 2, but you can now check out it's first single, "Miss My Friends". Typically melodic and well-structured, it's another winner.
The fact that it premiered this week on the website for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon is proof that the zest for Zeus is zooming upwards. They play the Wapiti Music Festival in Fernie BC on Aug. 8.
