Listen/download: The Asteroids Galaxy Tour – “Bring Us Together”
Listen to the first track the group unveiled from the new album (as well as other news and the tracklist) here.
Danish pop powerhouse The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, consisting of Lars Iversen & Mette Lindberg, have recently announced the release of their highly anticipated third studio album, Bring Us Together – set to drop September 16th via Hot Bus/Rough Trade! Having won audiences across the world over with their unique brand of deliciously fun & edgy pop, the Copenhagen duo will deliver eager fans & new listeners alike ten tracks of pure audio bliss.
Bring Us Together first single “My Club” is an instantly catchy pop masterpiece with a psychedelic vibe punctuated by pulsing club beats. Biting lyrics like “tonight, I’ll be the bullet in your gun” are laid atop smooth, melodic horn samples & killer percussion. For a taste of what to expect from the upcoming record, you can give “My Club” a listen below!
Heavily inspired by the two years of non-stop promotional & touring madness (and subsequent sense of isolation) following their previous album, Bring Us Together finds the duo’s desire to explore new musical avenues greater than ever before. As Iversen elaborates, “We wanted to create a heavier and slightly darker atmosphere for this album. The sound is more processed, and less “manual” than before- with more weighting on repetitive beats, bass grooves, chopped-up loops, and a more laidback vocal style.” The result is a sound collage & pop symphony created from equal parts of chopped-up danceable beats, spaced-out synths & bright neon green pop hooks.
Immersed within the Copenhagen music scene, producer & multi-instrumentalist Iversen met Lindberg in 2007. The two would go on to record a debut EP (Around The Bend) & two studio albums, 2009’s Fruit & 2012’s follow-up Out of Frequency. They’ve quickly become one of Denmark’s most prominent musical success stories, selling out venues around the globe & acquiring fans worldwide in the process.

Why hasn’t this been thought of before?
A joint venture between Girlie Action and L.A.-based innovator Invisible DJ, The Music Tee is a new and unique way for musicians to sell their music while creating a new outlet for fans to experience music and album art together again. It’s a shirt that has ‘cover art’ on the front and a track list on the back. Each shirt comes with a hang tag with a unique URL to download the music from TheMusicTee.com. The Music Tee is registered with Nielsen SoundScan, so each download counts as an album sale. The point is to help artists find a new platform to actually sell their music again while combining fashion and music. Past artist tees that are still available include The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Kid Sister, The Dim Mak Dance Compilation #1, Monsters of Folk, Mos Def and more!
“As fashionistas everywhere know, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys are two of the best places in New York to update your closet, but now they are also two of the best places to load your iPod. Thanks to the Music Tee…”

Here’s my personal favorite:
The Magic Wands
“Gimme that thing/Give it, my friend/Give me good, good times around the bend”
I’m sure you’ve heard the tune from the Apple Ipod Touch commercial. I mean, that’s where I heard it…no reason to lie.
And once I heard it, I was instantly on a mad quest to find out who it was. Finally, one day last week that quest came to an end. Ladies and gentlemen, here we have The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, from Denmark.
In September, their first single “The Sun Ain’t Shining No More” was released. That’s the same time that “Around the Bend” was heard on the Ipod commercials. Now, they have an EP available (check eMusic here), that’s where I got it. The EP has 4 tracks:
1. Around the Bend
2. The Sun Ain’t Shining No More
3. Push the Envelope
4. The Sun Ain’t Shining No More (Bruce Aisher Mix)
Their debut album is scheduled to come out the beginning of the New Year!
