Copenhagen’s The Asteroids Galaxy Tour have been winning over audiences globally with their unique brand of cutting edge, soulful, infectious pop. Since forming in 2007, the Danish group has racked up accomplishments that include having singles featured in two global television ads, sharing the stage with superstars like Amy Winehouse and Katy Perry, as well as successful U.S. tours. The band is now gearing up to release its second album, Out Of Frequency, on January 31, 2012.
The band played to voracious crowds on their last U.S. tour, including a sold show at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Check out the new “Major” live video from Bowery Ballroom. The slinky tune is infectious with its ’70s blaxploitation-esque horn stabs and edgy vocals that are the perfect balance of commanding and sweet.

Brandishing a signature sound that infuses indie-pop with neo-psychedelia, dance and retro-futuristic soul, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour never fail to produce addictive tunes that don’t sacrifice imagination. They deliver yet another unforgettable anthem with “Heart Attack” and its instantly memorable melody and a caffeinated beat guaranteed to invade dance floors. Title track “Out Of Frequency” highlights the soulful side of the band with its smoky nostalgic atmosphere and “Fantasy Friend Forever” has all the elements of an ecstatic psych-pop explosion with its thumpin’ beat and addictive hooks.
The band was first put on the map when its song, “Around The Bend,” was featured in a popular iPod Touch ad in 2008, launching The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s career worldwide. Additional tracks from the band’s debut album, Fruit, also appeared on hit television shows such as Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, and CSI: Miami. Most recently, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s latest single, “The Golden Age,” was chosen by Heineken for use in a global 2011 campaign. The commercial features more than just the song itself—it showcases frontwoman Mette Lindberg belting out the tune in her own captivating way, giving viewers a taste of what it’s like to see the high-energy band live.
