The Hives Return (at last!)

19 Mar

The Hives have been away for five years. Five years. They always take a long time between albums, but this wait has been RIDICULOUS! Finally they have released details about their sixth album, ‘Lex Hives’ (which, considering they are Swedish, means this is self-titled). The twelve track LP will come out on June 4th, and it will be preceded by the single ‘Go Right Ahead’.

Like ‘Walk Idiot Walk’, ‘Hate To Say I Told You So’, ‘Tick Tick Boom’ and ‘Main Offender’, ‘Go Right Ahead’ is a first single with swagger. Serious swagger. It’s built around a typically rocking riff, an infectious chorus and chanted refrain. The Hives haven’t reinvented the wheel (thank god), they’ve done what they were designed to do – they’ve made the world smile.
