“ASG are masters of producing extremely catchy cold wave, industrial synth pop, which this new EP is another excellent proof of”. (Dark Entries, BE)
“The music evokes New Order with a typical post punk bass riff à la Peter Hook, brilliant synths and melodies that are almost poppy” (Reflections of Darkness, BE)
Although released late in 2014, the new Agent Side Grinder single “This Is Us” managed to climb onto many annual “Best-of” lists. The track is the first taste from their highly anticipated album “Alkimia”, which is released in March 2015.
“Alkimia” will be the bands fourth effort, and is easily their most accomplished work to date. According to the band, their magnum opus. It’s also their first album since signing to Progress Productions, Sweden’s leading label for electronic music.
ASG will bring their new show on a European Tour in May 2015, and will be perfoming at Spillestedet Stengade on May 15th.
Their most recent appearance at BIMFEST in Antwerp was met with ecstatic reviews:
“The crowd went crazy, it was pure ecstasy!” (Peek-a-Boo Mag, BE)
“This is lunar, transcendent, overwhelming. No comparisons.” (VerdamMnis Magazine, FR)
ASG has done five European tours and played festivals such as Wave-Gotik Treffen, The Great Escape, Eurosonic, Paaspop, Les Transmusicales de Rennes, Drop Dead Festival and Arvikafestivalen.
They have opened for bands such as Suicide and Cold Cave and collaborated with artists like Dirk Ivens, Kite and Henric de la Cour.
