— The Newton Theatre will welcome Time of the Season: The Zombies on Sunday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets went on sale May 9 and are available.

The second UK group following the Beatles to score a #1 hit in America, The Zombies infiltrated the airwaves with the sophisticated melodies, breathy vocals, choral back-up harmonies and jazzy keyboard riffs of their 1960s hit singles like She’s Not There and Tell Her No. Ironically, the group broke-up in 1968 just prior to achieving their greatest success – the chart-topping single Time of the Season, from their swan-song album “Odessey and Oracle.”

In the intervening years, while lead singer Colin Blunstone went on to develop an acclaimed solo career, and keyboardist and songwriter Rod Argent rocked ‘70’s arenas with his eponymous band Argent the legend of The Zombies took on a life of its own. Generations of new bands have cited The Zombies’ work as pop touchstones, including such artists as Neko Case and Nick Cave, who have recorded She’s Not There for the popular HBO series True Blood, She and Him, Beck, Belle and Sebastian, The Black Angels, The Fleet Foxes, Beach House and The Beautiful South.

Decades later, Blunstone and Argent have resurrected The Zombies, recruiting bassist Jim Rodford, Rodford’s son Steve on drums, and renowned session guitarist Tom Toomey. 2013 marked a major year for the band, with three U.S. tours, the American release of their new album, “Breathe Out, Breathe In” the debut on RollingStone.com and VEVO of their first-ever music video for Any Other Way and the announcement of their nomination to the 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Tickets for The Zombies are $59 for Premium seating, $49 for the Orchestra and $39 for the Balcony.
