Published Oct 05, 2011A year ago, Toronto, ON pop rockers Zeus announced that they would be releasing a series of seven-inches. To date, that series has only resulted in two singles. Luckily, fans needn't feel shortchanged, since the band have unveiled a new digital single in anticipation of rolling out their sophomore LP.
The new track is called "Are You Gonna Waste My Time?" and a press release reports that it "delivers smart, heavyweight riffs that conjure some of the '70s best-loved artists." You can judge for yourself by streaming it from Zeus's website (although, as of press time, SoundCloud is going through technical difficulties) or checking out a live performance at the bottom of this page. The single will be available to purchase through Arts & Crafts on October 18.
This song will appear on the group's next full-length. The details of the record are still scarce at this point, but it's due out sometime in "early 2012."
As previously reported, Zeus will be touring North America with Sam Roberts Band. They have also booked a number of headlining gigs in Ontario. See the schedule below, and stay tuned for more album updates in the coming months.
