Danish pop powerhouse The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, consisting of Lars Iversen & Mette Lindberg, will release their highly anticipated third studio album, Bring Us Together on September 16th via Hot Bus/Rough Trade. In support of the new record, they’ll take to the road on a newly announced US tour this October, making stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Washington, DC & Philadelphia! Tickets will be available as a direct-to-fan pre-sale as of tomorrow, and on general sale starting Wednesday.
Having previously unveiled Bring Us Together first single “My Club,” an instantly catchy pop masterpiece with a psychedelic vibe punctuated by pulsing club beats, the band is now giving away album cut “Bring Us Together” as a free MP3! “Bring Us Together” is available to download.
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.
