Swedish blues/jam metal band Asteroid posted the following message on its Facebook wall regarding a new 7" and tour dates. Below the message, check out an upload of Asteroid doing an older track, "The Great Unknow."
"Since the departure of their former drummer in 2010 Asteroid has been planning their return! And now the time has finally come, with the talents of Henrik Jansson behind the drum kit the band is stronger than ever! As they embark on “The Mighty Asteroid Travelling Show”, a tour that will take them all across Europe during 2012, they bring with them a new 7” consisting of two tracks that show the more bluesy side to their signature style of 70’s hard/psychedelic rock! The song “Move a Mountain” has all the elements of a classic Asteroid track! A hard hitting blues anthem with lots of brilliant jams and a smooth spacious chorus. “One foot in the Grave” is the shortest Asteroid song to date and probably the fastest as well. A pure delight for those fond of heavy folk rock and psychedelic grooves! It has been showing up in live sets for some time. The single will be for sale exclusively on “The Mighty Asteroid Travelling Show” so make sure to catch one of their live shows this year! See you out there..."
