The Hives Announce North American Tour

    You may have seen the Hives at one of the two Coachella festivals. Or perhaps you caught them on Jimmy Kimmel Live a couple of days ago. If not, there are going to be further chances to see Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist don his new top hat and lead his band into a garage rock fury.

    Lex Hives is set for release on June 5 on Disques Hives, which will quickly be followed by a return to North American shores for a whistle-stop tour in the same month. Can you believe it’s been almost 12 years since “I Hate to Say I Told You So” first got an airing? These guys are almost approaching veteran status.
