After what seemed like a suitable hibernation, Toronto’s own musical powerhouse ZEUS has set their alarm for rock o’clock and are storming back into the live scene. Armed with new material from their upcoming, fourth full-length album, Zeus is rejuvenated and brimming with unburned rock n’ roll fuel, delivering a newly charged-up live show.

“I truly believe the time we took to reflect on what we’ve done -and what we want to do now – is the reason we’re back at it. Our love for each other as people has always been the sustaining factor in this band. The well-being of our members is more important than anything ..even the band itself.”Carlin Nicholson

Polaris Prize-nominated Zeus album “Say Us” topped CBC charts, won XM The Verge’s award for Album of the Year, and garnered stellar reviews from mags like Q and Uncut, leading to shows with Sloan, Broken Social Scene, Metric, Hey Rosetta!, Sam Roberts Band, Stars, Bright Eyes, and Belle & Sebastian.

The new live show promises to be strewn with the staple indie classics their fans have come to know and love, from “Say Us” (2009), “Busting Visions” (2012), and “Classic Zeus” (2014), as well as a solid block of new material, as timeless as ever before that unmistakably ‘Sounds Like Zeus’.

“We are unbelievably excited to be able to bring new music to our devoted fans and have the op- portunity to showcase new and classic material for people that may not yet be familiar with the band. It’s an exciting time for Zeus, and the sense of togetherness we have always felt with our fans and supporters feels alive and well.” Mike O’brien
