Greek groove / metal four-piece Planet of Zeus return to the UK in support of their spectacular new album ‘Loyal to the Pack’. Last seen on these shores supporting the mighty Clutch, PoZ are excited to be heading back for a fistful of headline dates.
At a time in which individualism seems to be the ultimate solution for some ‘Loyal to the Pack’, is an ode to the benefits of teamwork. Being well known for their never ending signature heavy riffs, gritty vocals and unmistakeable grooves, the band decided to “shuffle their deck of cards” and push the boundaries of their musical direction, encompassing melody, clean, but heartrending vocals, a newly found sense of dynamics in amongst their colossal trademark riffs. Serving to a establish a signature sound for Planet of Zeus, a sound that takes the listener on a journey throughout the history of heavy music; from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, The Allman Brothers Band to Queens of the Stone Age and AC/DC to Clutch.
Right now, Planet of Zeus are the biggest rock band in Greece, consistently selling out every venue they play. Their annual Athens headlining show attracted more than 3.000 people and set a record of attendance in Greece's underground rock scene. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following throughout the world. After 5 consecutive European tours, including a slot on Metal Hammer’s ‘Lords Of The Riff II’ UK tour and several high profile festivals (notably a triumphant appearance at Bloodstock Open Air), Planet of Zeus finished 2015 as main support for Clutch's 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.
