Published Jan 17, 2012Last fall, we found out that Ontario-based rock troupe Zeus were in the midst of planning their sophomore follow-up to 2010's Say Us, and the band have now confirmed that they'll be delivering the disc this spring.
The clairvoyantly titled Busting Visions will hit both brick-and-mortar and digital stores March 27 through Arts & Crafts. The album cover is above and the tracklist is below. The record will include the previously premiered "Are You Gonna' Waste My Time," which will serve as its first single. If you missed out on the cut in October, you can stream and download the tune in the widget below.
The album's tracks were captured at both Zeus's Ill Eagle Studio and at labelmate Feist's ranch studio. Arts & Crafts describes what lies therein as "a sweaty romp of a record, oozing cool, with fuzzed-out riffs, razor-sharp hooks and harmonies galore."
Before the record drops, however, Zeus will be out on the road playing a few Canadian gigs with Arkells and the Sam Roberts Band, then heading out to Europe with Dan Mangan this April. Check out the schedule below.
