The Hives

Stop the presses! Alert the neighbors! Eat your vegetables! THE HIVES ARE BACK! THE HIVES ARE BACK! One of the most electrifying bands today, the fab five from Fagersta are ferocious in person and on their latest offering, Tyrannosaurus Hives, chewing out the idiots of our world, churning out garage-approved riffs and … wearing matching outfits. Known worldwide for its staggering live show, the group channels the wail of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (subtly checked by the moniker of singer Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist), the splits-and-spins choreography of James Brown, and a more user-friendly version of the Sex Pistols’ great rock-and-roll swindle into a heart-stopping display of jittery punk-rock energy and boastful Las Vegas showmanship that is distinctly their own.
