Treat your ears to rip-roaring new song « Gasoline » HERE
« Addiction is a major refuge from modern living’s bullshit and this is song is all about it. Dont let the « artistic » intro fool you, this tune is fierce and raw, just like addiction. » says the band.
In 2019, at a time in which irrationalism seems to be king, with far-right politics enjoying mainstream status worldwide, religious fundamentalists, flat-earthers, and anti-vaccinists testing the limits of freedom of speech, PLANET OF ZEUS return with their highly anticipated fifth studio album, « Faith in Physics » (Heavy Psych Sounds records). 46 minutes of heavy, intellectual riffology and fat grooves, reminiscent of RATM’s best days, MC5-esque attitude and energy, coupled with QOTSA’s pop sensibilities. An album that flows like water and closes with Planet of Zeus’s signature psychedelic last track, that sounds like « the Doors » landing in 2019 Athens via teleportation.

PLANET OF ZEUS are a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece. They have been around since 2000, playing extensively throughout their home country, just about anywhere they could, ranging from house parties to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following, which exceeds Greece’s geographical borders. After 7 consecutive European tours, supporting Clutch at their 2015 Psychic Warfare European tour and several high profile festivals (Graspop,Bloodstock etc), Planet of Zeus played their biggest ever headline show in their hometown, Athens, at the prestigious SNFCC park, to an audience of 8500 people.
PLANET OF ZEUS have released 5 albums. “Eleven the hard way”, was released in April 2008, through Casket Music/ Copro Records (UK). The album, although a debut, received great reviews from magazines, such as Metal Hammer and Kerrang and even Bruce Dickinson featured it on his BBC radio show. The sophomore album “Macho Libre”, released in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records, was the album, that established the band as a major act in Greece and started creating a European buzz around Planet of Zeus. Since then, their two official music videos, “Leftovers” and “Vanity suit” have become classics. With their third album,“Vigilante”(2014, ihaveadrum records), the band upped the ante and created their own distinct blend of riff heavy, groove laden rock ‘n roll. In 2016 they released their fourth album, « Loyal to the Pack » (ihaveadrum records), an album, which at first shocked their fans, with its deep, esoteric lyrics and highly melodic songwriting, but quickly became the band’s best selling release. In 2018 they released « Live in Athens » (ihaveadrum records), their first ever live album, which featured a best-of selection of songs, showcased the band’s songwriting evolution through the years and managed to capture their undeniable on-stage chemistry.
