The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are a Danish alternative pop band consisting of vocalist Mette Lindberg and producer Lars Iversen. When performing live the band extends to a six-piece with horn section, featuring Miloud Carl Sabri (trumpet), Sven Meinild (saxophone), Mads Brinch Nielsen (guitar), and Rasmus Valldorf (drums). Lars Iversen is the primary songwriter and producer. Formed in 2008, the band is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Their debut single, "The Sun Ain't Shining No More", was released on September 15, 2008 on their own 'Small Giants' label. The band is perhaps best known for their single "Around the Bend", which was used in an Apple iPod Touch commercial starting in September 2008, and was released as a single in December 2008.
Myer, Australia's largest department store chain, used the song "The Golden Age" to launch their 2009 summer range, and SBS Television used the song "The Golden Age" to promote the US television series Mad Men. 'Around The Bend' is featured in the Anna Wintour documentary movie, 'The September Issue' released in 2009. In late 2008, three songs by the band were featured on the Gossip Girl episode "It's a Wonderful Lie." 'Around the Bend' was also featured in the NBC TV series Chuck in episode 209 when Chuck walks into the 'Roark Expo' for his first day at work at 'Roark Instruments.'
Mette Lindberg was a guest on the BBC music quiz show Never Mind the Buzzcocks in November 2008. More recently the band were guests on the Danish morning TV show 'Good Morning Denmark'. They have also guested on top French music show 'Taratata' where they first performed the track 'Inner City Blues', a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic, which later became a favourite of their live shows.
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour's debut album 'Fruit' was released on September 21, 2009 in Europe, and Oct 27 in the US.
