Asteroid Complete Work on New Album III

News you can use? Damn right. Reactivated Swedish trio  Asteroid have finished their new album, III, and sent it off to the press. Release date isn’t yet announced but is impending through Fuzzorama Records and if you don’t yet have it on your wishlist for the remainder of 2016, put it there now. Go on — I’ll wait.

Got it? Hope so, because while it’s been five years since the fuzz-boogie mavens unveiled the progressive jamidelica of II (review here), the time away seems not to have dulled their chemistry in the slightest, or at least it appears that way looking at the live video from their recent show in Athens, which you can see below, and which, yes, does indeed feature new material.

Easily one of my most anticipated records for the rest of the year. I’ll keep you posted on further details when I hear them. In the meantime, the band posted that the record was done and they’ll be out on tour with Limestone Whale in September/October, and you can find that info and those dates below:


Hello everybody!
We haven’t forgotten about you, we’ve just taken a little vacation.

The album is all done, including the artwork, and has been sent to the printing plant. We are sooo proud of how it turned out!

As of today we have no news about release dates, but you will want to come and check out a show or two on the upcoming tour, that much we can say.

We have a couple of gigs in Sweden booked as well, so if you have the chanse you should really stop by!

That’s all for now…
