Biography

Copenhagen, Denmark (2007 – present)

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is a band which formed in 2007 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The band currently consists of Mette Lindberg (vocals), Lars Iversen (bass, keys), Mikkel Baltser Dørig (guitar, keys), Miloud Carl Sabri (trumpet, keys) and Rasmus Valldorf (drums). Their debut album, Fruit was released in 2009 on their own small giants label. The band’s single Around The Bend was featured in an iPod Touch commercial in December 2008.

Speaking with Songfacts in an interview, Iversen explained how the song got in the Apple commercial: “We have this company working for us in the States called Synch, and they got in touch with Apple. I think they had this meeting with Steve Jobs himself, and he picked that song out of the bunch and said, ‘This is it, this is the new track for the iPod Touch.’ Apparently he just loved that track, but we never saw it as one of our singles. We have some other songs that we thought would be great singles, and that would work cool on for the radio, but he really loved that song.”

The Asteroids reached instant global exposure when their song Around The Bend was featured in an Apple iPod Touch advert in late 2008. Their music also appeared in US hit TV series Gossip Girl, CSI Miami as well as Chuck.
Around The Bend was also chosen as one of the key tracks to the R.J. Cuttler documentary “The September Issue”, based on Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Their song The Golden Age is featured in the latest Heineken advert The Entrance from 2011.

    I liked quite the new album, even though more electronic. Lack of screams of Mette, if this album had been less electronic and had the screams of Mette, would be perfect . :'(

    They're not a band who's afraid to experiment and that's why I love their latest release, you can pick out some quality tunes that all sound completely different to one another across all three release and still have a rockin' time with all of them. Looking forward to heading to London to see them live in November!

    New album is very different from their previous ones, less psychedelic and more electronic, but it's good anyways. [2]

    On my first listen of the tracks, I did not like much, despite having enjoyed a few songs, but I'll listen to the album more times. The new album is more electronic, very different, I think slightly bad than their previous, but I hope change my mind, because only heard once.
