The Asteroids Galaxy Tour Coming Bearing Fruit

(Girlie) Copenhagen's retro soul popsters The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are leading the new wave of Scandanavian pop. The [overused cliche removed] release of debut album, FRUIT, will arrive October 13 on Small Giants.

Fruit is a musical rollercoaster of happy soul and kaleidoscopic pop triumphs, which includes "Around The Bend" of Apple iPod Touch commercial fame, the more melancholic, teetering-on-trippy track "Satellite," and "Lady Jesus" a deliciously-groovy song with an insatiable sing-a-long chorus that will get stuck in your head for days.

The core members of the band are Lars Iversen and Mette Lindberg. Together they have fermented their love of soul and kaleidoscopic pop, spectacularly brought to life through Mette's utterly unique and very cool vocals.

Live, the band grows to a six-piece, including a fully-fledged horn section of trumpet and sax, clavinet sounds, drums and guitar. In addition to festival circuit appearances, the band joined Katy Perry on an extensive European tour this summer.

About that name..."I stole it from Miloud, our Moroccan trumpet player who spent time in Cuba playing with the Buena Vista Social Club, he came up with the name", laughs Lars. "I like it because it sounds like the title of a film or a book, rather than a band name. It's asking you to step in to a story and join us on a journey - a trip in our galaxy".
