The Hives share new song. Third Man release limited 7″
Third Man Records is excited to announce The Hives’ limited-edition double-A side 7″ of “I’m Alive” b/w “Good Samaritan.” Hear “Good Samaritan” HERE. Both new tracks were produced by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy) and recorded in Los Angeles.
The Hives recently wrapped up a string of SOLD OUT US dates with Refused. LA Weekly described the shows as “a triumphant rise from the grave by ever-demonstrative and rambunctious Hives” and the Kansas City Pitch proclaimed “these are some of the finest showmen in modern rock!” The Hives will head back to Europe for a summer festival run, including performances at the inaugural Lollapalooza Stockholm, Sjock Festival (Belgium), Mad Cool (Spain), and more. See their full tour schedule HERE.
In the twenty years since the Hives exploded around the world, they have sold out stadiums and shared stages with everyone from AC/DC to The Rolling Stones. SPIN calls The Hives “the best live band on the planet” and frontman Pelle Almqvist “the greatest frontman in rock,” and the BBC dubbed the band “a force of nature.” Rolling Stone named Veni Vidi Vicious one of the Top 100 Albums of the decade and “Hate To Say I Told You So” earned a spot on Pitchfork’s Top 500 Songs of the 2000’s. They sold millions of albums world-wide with multiple RIAA Gold-certifications.
