Lead singer Howlin' Pelle Almqist has been known to close Hives shows by proclaiming, "Like syphilis, we will return." That lovely little prediction is soon to come true for fans of the band in North America. After the Swedish retro-rock group finishes up its current tour of Europe, The Hives will return to North America in May. The tour, in support of last year's The Black and White Album, will kick off in Hotlanta, head north into Canada, and finish up with an appearance at Sasquatch!
