The Hives

Ace Garage Rock from Sweden.

It’s late July and the self-proclaimed purveyors of ‘real rock and roll’ The Hives are well into the festival season – they’ve clocked up 15 shows so far – most notably Benicassim near Valencia and have stopped off in our nation’s capital for the first time in two years to play two intimate gigs showcasing some of the material from their new album.There will be a few surprises on the record – nothing quite as new as songs recorded in their mother tongue, but they assure Clash that there will be some stuff that’s very, very different...


Howlin' Pelle Almqvist - Vocals, Nicholaus Arson - Guitar, Vigilante Carlstroem - Guitar, Chris Dangerous - Drums, Dr. Matt Destruction - Bass
