The five debonair Swedish men that make up The Hives have released a music video for their latest single Go Right Ahead (watch below), taken from their upcoming new album Lex Hives, due for Australian release on the 8th of June. The new album is their first in over 5 years, and was produced by the band themselves.
The album will have 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.”
