The five debonair Swedish men that make up The Hives released their new album Lex Hives last week, and now we’ve got the official video clip for their first single Go Right Ahead (watch below). The new album is their first in over 5 years, and was produced by the band themselves.
The album has 12 tracks, including this single, as well as 2 bonus tracks appearing on the digital release. The band funded, recorded and produced the album themselves, claiming that it was a quicker process than working with people who are bust 24/7, 365 days a year.
Frontman Pelle has said of the rest of the album: “I guess the idea is just to make it as Hives as possible, whereas the last record was The Hives shooting into the stratosphere and trying different things. Now…I hate it when people make ‘back to basics’ albums, that’s not what it is, it’s something else. But it’s more of us.”
