The Asteroids Galaxy Tour vocalist Mette Lindberg took part in a Q&A with Hipster Overkill, where she talked about what fans can expect from the Danish pop act’s full-length debut album in April. “You can expect everything and nothing,” Lindberg said. “Even though you’ve heard the singles you can expect more songs that take us in a new direction. But, at the same time, they have something in common, so it’s a whole piece. I think that makes it fresh. It’s not something we thought about, it’s just the way it is.” The entire interview at hipsteroverkill.com has since been removed.
FabChannel.com has video of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour entire live show at at Paradiso in Amsterdam on January 15th.
Video of the Danish alternative pop group performing ‘The Golden Age’, ‘Lady Jesus’, ‘Around The Bend’, ‘Sunshine Coolin’, ‘The Sun Ain’t Shining No More’, ‘Satellite’, and ‘Push The Envelope’ has since been removed (the site shut down).

Alright, this is our happy new year blog…
but hey, seriously, we mean it…!! :)
Please please please DO have a tremendous ridiculously happiest of all happy new years!!! We will certainly be doin our best here in the galaxy!
Right now Mette is warming up in Thailand while I am coolin’ down at my parents summer house at the stoney shores of freezing cold Denmark, far far and away from the city and civilization.
But it’s NOT summer here! But no regrets, I have a fireplace and lots of carved wood here to keep me warm and alive. And it’s beautiful up here. The air is crystal clear (and clean!) as I am sitting by my fireplace overviewing the sea in my biggest and warmest woolen sweater… I love it. And guess what I brought with me up here (apart from my girlfriend..?) : My little mobile recording studio including a guitar, bass, keyboard, a microphone and my MacBook. Yes, new songs will be born here! I hope that some day you’ll get to know them – by heart :)
Have a great new years eve!!
See you in 09.
