Alphabeat released their new single ‘Vacation’ the other day on iTunes. The track is from the Danish pop group’s upcoming third studio album, set to be released late summer 2012. Alphabeat performed the single live at the final of the Danish version of ‘X Factor’ on March 24th. Listen via YouTube below.
Alphabeat posted some behind the scenes footage from their Skanderborg 2010 performance on August 4th in Denmark. “Here’s a lil video recorded at an amazingly beautiful festival in Jutland, Denmark, called Skanderborg Festival,” the band write on their MySpace. “We’ve played Skanderborg 3 times before and this time around we brought a guy with a camera and two pretty girls with lots of silly questions … This is what it all became…” Watch it via YouTube below.
Alphabeat checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@thisisalphabeat) on Thursday (October 7), reacting to reports the Danish pop band were set to open on tour for Scissor Sisters. They write:
Hi guys …
Hope everything’s fine in the world of … the world … (???!)
We’ve heard rumors these last few days about us going on tour with the amazing Scissor Sisters … Those are just rumors and sadly we can’t confirm anything ; (
The one thing we can confirm though is that we’re going on our own Denmark tour this November and December and that you can come along if you want to ???
Ticket sales are going great so you’ll have to be quick …

Alphabeat are responding to news reports that suggested Anders SG had complained about the treatment they got as the opening act on Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour. The story quotes Anders as saying:
The first time we got to see the stage was when we performed each night. She said, ‘I promise you’ll get your soundcheck,’ but we never did. We didn’t really get to socialize with her either.
But on the band’s MySpace blog (@thisisalphabeat), they had this to say about the soundcheck and socializing issues:
It’s a fact that we didn’t get any soundchecks. A thing we didn’t expect as the Monster Ball shows are pretty damn impressive and all of you Little Monsters who went to watch Lady Gaga on her tour have witnessed this massive production. We toured with Mika back in 2007 and didn’t get soundchecks back then. Supported The Wombats in Liverpool in 2008 – Didn’t get a soundcheck. It’s alright guys. We are pros. And so is Gaga’s crew and our crew so thanks to you guys for making it so smooth to go on stage every night!
We didn’t expect a game of backgammon in the catering every day… We talked about the possibility of never getting to meet her. But we did on the second night when she came in to our dressing room and said hi and welcomed us on the tour and apologized about the stress now and then behind stage and said she hoped it would get better the next dates… She even bought us flowers and wrote a beautiful card that we’ll keep to ourselves…
The blog doesn’t explicitly say though whether Anders ever made the comments to the media, which were widely disseminated by WENN, who rarely source their quotes.
Update: Here’s what one of the Anders had to say to us about the quote:
Hi PD. Things were said but the one who wrote it forgot to add words as amazing/fabulous/honored and made it look like a complaint! x A
t5m’s ‘Live From Fashion Week’ caught up with Alphabeat’s Stine Bramsen, talking with the singer about her new hairstyle, playing before large crowds, having a bit of stage fright because it’s been awhile since they’ve been on stage, the new single ‘Hole In My Heart’, her favorite designers like Matthew Williamson, and if she’s pressured to maintain her look and style.
Alphabeat checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@thisisalphabeat) on Wednesday (January 27) with news that they’ve changed the title of their second album, originally ‘The Spell’, to ‘The Beat Is…’ The Danish pop group write:
After thinking long and hard, Alphabeat have decided to change the name of their forthcoming album.
The album, released on 1st March, will now be called…
‘The Beat Is…’
