A systematic search for multi-mode Cepheids using the database of the ASAS-SN survey has led to the detection of thirteen new double-mode and two triple-mode Cepheids in the Galactic disk. These discoveries have increased the number of Galactic disk multi-mode Cepheids by 33%. One of the new triple-mode variables pulsates simultaneously in the fundamental and in the first and the second radial overtone modes and the other in the first three radial overtone modes. Overtone triple-mode Cepheids were identified only in the Galactic bulge and in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds previously.
