Out from the woodsy terrain that engulfs Oslo, Norway, emerges one of the freshest breaths of air to come out of pop punk in some time. Mixing your typical pop punk with a large dose of something more organic and evolved, Lukestar will - without a doubt - make an impact on your iTunes most played counter.

Truls, Yngve, Marius, Jorgen, and Torbjorn are modest Europeans who were at first inspired predominantly by Queen and the 80's pop movement. Later they took a more alternative approach to music. Think: Jonsi of Sigur Ros joining Animal Collective and jumping into a puddle of Saves the Day. (Pre-In Reverie)

Lake Toba is the album, and it's already available on Itunes. So get it now! As far as touring and whatnot, they started off with a mini tour through France and have extended it until January of 2009. With only one U.S. show scheduled, and the rest being in the UK or some other European territory, I would advise you to catch these dudes on the road if you have the opportunity. - Xavier Bustos
