The seeds of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour were sown in a Danish small town in the late ’90s when Lars Iversen launched his career as a jazz pianihttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifst when he was only a teen. After discovering David Bowie, he turned a corner, incorporating rock ’n’ roll into his repertoire. In his tiny apartment, Lars and his brother built their own studio and began experimenting, making beats and loops, cutting and sampling, learning the basic recording skills that way. Around this time, Lars crossed paths with Mette Lindberg, who he dubbed “the coolest singer in Copenhagen.” From there The Asteroids Galaxy Tour was born. In 2008, the band reached instant global exposure when their song “Around The Bend” was featured in an Apple iPod Touch advertisement. Their music has also appeared in Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and CSI Miami. “Around The Bend” was also one of the key tracks to the R.J. Cuttler documentary "The September Issue", based on Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
