The Hives was one of my favorite bands while I was going through my high school rock phase and I still love to listen to them from time to time. I think one of the main reasons why I stopped listening to them was because of the fact that they haven’t made new music since about the time I was in high school. They’ve been on a five year hiatus. FIVE YEARS! No wonder I haven’t heard of them for a while, I just thought they died out. Their upcoming album, Lex Hives, is set to hit stores next month and I’m excited. The Hives has released some new visuals for their first single, Go Right Ahead, and its a simple video for a song that really represent the sound that I’m familiar with when it comes to The Hives. Man, I feel like I’ve written “The Hives” a million times. I love them. In the video, the Swedish band visit a studio in Stockholm, dressed in tuxes and top hats, performing the song. The song is apparently their take on Electric Light Orchestra’s Don’t Bring Me Down. The new album is set to come out June 5! Let me know what you guys think about the return of The Hives below!
