After going five years between albums, the Hives have been making an impressive comeback, moving non-stop since their appearance at Coachella. Call it making up for lost time, or proving that rock music isn’t dead. To promote their forthcoming sixth LP Lex Hives, the color-coordinated Swedes paid a visit to the French publication Le Figaro to play a few songs and sit down for an interview.
Here’s “Go Right Ahead,” featuring Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist in typically irreverent form.
The band also performed “Wait A Minute” from Lex Hives and “Tick Tick Boom” from 2007’s The Black and White Album. Watch the full session and interview here.
Lex Hives is out June 5 on Disques Hives and is currently available for streaming.
