I wanted to share a quick update on The Hives, as they just released an official video for their single “Go Right Ahead” online. You can check it out on their YouTube channel via the link below. The concept? Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist & the gang take charge of a Gotham-esque city with their very own Hives blimp. There’s chaos & confusion, plenty of top hats, and possibly even some space exploration.
And in case you’ve been sleeping, the band’s anticipated new album Lex Hives was just released this week. A few press quotes can be found below. Let me know if you haven’t heard the new tunes yet.
Watch the new official video for The Hives’ single “Go Right Ahead” below:

“[Lex Hives] picks up where 2004′s brain-bashingTyrannosaurus Hivesleft off, cutting a broad swath of destruction through proto-punk and garage rock on the way to achieving arena-sized glam…the Hives rarely break from the celebratory gut-rippers that made them famous.” – SPIN
