It seems like it's been more than a decade since The Hives last had anyone's sustained attention, but it's been shorter: They just haven't put out an album since 2007. Their new one, Lex Hives, is due out June 5, and to promote it, they were on Jools Holland in the U.K. They played two new cuts: "1000 Answers" and "Go Right Ahead." "Go Right Ahead" is the highlight, particularly due to the "We are back and live in your television sets" intro. The Hives are still one of the funner bands to watch live; the time off didn't change that.
