    The Hives

    I'm Alive

      It’s been nearly two decades since the Swedish rock-n-roll heroes The Hives unleashed their debut album on the world and almost 5 years since new music has been released. Now, they will drop TWO intoxicatingly brash new songs I’m Alive and Good Samaritan on a limited edition double A-side 7” via Third Man Records. Both tracks were produced & mixed by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother) in Los Angeles.

      The band explains:
      I’m Alive is a song about crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance that sounds like crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance because it is a band crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance. Use it in your own life to help you obliterate your own resistance! Musically slower and with more chords than usual, but heavy man. Real heavy.
      Good Samaritan is a song about helping people help themselves by not helping them? Are they sarcastic or do they hate people now? Is this punk? You never know with these Hives and it’s been a while since I saw them so let’s all go see them again and see what they are on about? Musically faster than usual but a surprising dive into the chorus that feels like going into hyperspace. Now it’s not surprising anymore. Oh well.

      The Black And White Album

        "The Black And White Album" is a record of inhuman proportions, recorded all over the world 'because we thought it was time to have other people involved besides ourselves and our closest friends'. After some initial recording at Hive Manor, for the first time The Hives ventured outside of Sweden to put music to tape. The majority of the album was recorded in Mississippi with producer Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello). They also met with Pharrell Williams in Miami and 'made some music with him too' ("T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S" and "Well Allright!"). A week in London at the historic Olympic studios with Jacknife Lee (U2, Bloc Party, Editors) also bore fruit ("Hey Little World"). Back home another song was recorded with fellow Swede Tomas Oberg from the band Bob Hund. All in all, a lot of songs, and more than enough great ones to choose from.
