THE HIVES Tickets
The Hives tickets will be available on Aloud.com from 9AM on FRIDAY May 18th
THE HIVES have made a record which has everything that you originally loved them for - kicks, riffs, good times, etc etc etc - while also being snazzy and new and longer and generally different from everything they did before. You might almost say it's like making the transition from monochrome TV to colour TV, except THE HIVES are more BLACK & WHITE than ever, so that would be misleading. That's why the record is called: 'THE BLACK & WHITE ALBUM'!! Here's their singer, Howlin' Pelle Almqvist: "We promised ourselves when we were 17,"he says, "that we'd make 3 half-hour-long records of blistering punk rock, and so we did, culminating in 'Tyrannosaurus Hives'. This time, we didn't want 12 fast songs, then it was over. That would've been the 4th time. They work in sets of three, you see, then it's a new period, so we had to come up with a new plan." To recap: THE HIVES first imposed their B&W vision in the late 1990's, touring Sweden (their home nation) and Germany like crazy, until 2001, when they took the world by storm alongside strapping young rockers like The Strokes and White Stripes. Their first 2 records were collected on a British compilation, called 'Your New Favourite Band', which went not silver, gold or even multi-platinum, but diamond!
From it, came the hits Supply And Demand', 'Main Offender' and 'Hate To Say I Told You So'.
