Greece’s heavy rock torchbearers PLANET OF ZEUS unveil their forceful and revolutionary fifth album ‘Faith In Physics’ in its entirety today, before its official release tomorrow on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.

‘Faith In Physics’ is undoubtedly the Athens foursome’s most multifaceted and enthralling release yet. It’s all about the maelstrom riffs, the hooks, the fist-pumping choruses, and an unrivaled art for conscious, mass-gathering lyrics.

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 » on Heavy Psych Sounds Records. 46 minutes of heavy, intellectual riffology and massive grooves, reminiscent of RATM’s early days, MC5-esque unbridled energy, coupled with a delightful pop rock sensibility.

PREORDER

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.
