Zeus Premieres First Single From New LP 'Classic Zeus' Exclusively Via The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Out 9/2 On Arts & Crafts

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) Zeus will release their new album on indie powerhouse Arts & Crafts, aptly titled 'Classic Zeus,' on Sept 2. The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is exclusively premiering the utterly infectious lead single "Miss My Friends" today. Listen here:

Recorded at Zeus' own Ill Eagle Studios in Toronto, the eleven tracks on 'Classic Zeus' find the band expanding their sonic palette beyond fuzzed-out 70's rock into heartfelt pop as they maintain their razor-sharp wit and airtight harmonies, always landing on something shining and unforgettable.

'Classic Zeus' was written after a lengthy tour that concluded at a crossroads, with the band feeling frayed and uncertain about their future. Bowed but not broken, Zeus pushed their craft, embraced a hunger for exploration, and produced a testament to their own resilience. Their most concise and collaborative album to date, 'Classic Zeus' finds all four members - songwriting trio of guitarists Mike O'Brien and Neil Quin and bassist Carlin Nicholson, along with drummer Rob Drake - freely swapping instrumental and vocal duties.

'Classic Zeus' follows 2012's 'Busting Visions', which earned the group raves for its "muscular, Big Star-sized guitar riffs" (NPR) and "'70s-groove-infused" (NY Times) sound. KCRW praised it as an "ode to Southern rock jams and T Rex glam," while Esquire said it's "as fun as 21st-century classic rock gets," and SPIN proclaimed that "Zeus ain't nothing to eff with." The band's debut album, 'Say Us', topped the CBC radio charts, garnering a Polaris Music Prize nomination, rave reviews and national cover features in Canada, and led to dates with Belle & Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, Metric, and others.

Stay tuned for more album news and tour dates to be announced.
