The Hives Announce First Album In Seven Years, Release New Track I'm Alive

Friday, 17 May 2019 Written by Helen Payne

The Hives are back!

The Swedish rockers have announced their first album in seven years. Though yet to have a firm release date or title, we do know it's due to arrive at some point in early 2020. They have, however, shared the first single, which will get a physical 7" release on June 7 through Jack White's Third Man Records.

I’m Alive is a big, bold, indie rock earworm of a comeback, with vocalist Pelle Almqvist asking: “Did you miss me boys and girls?”

We certainly did. Discussing the track with DIY, he said:

“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!”

The Hives are set to headline a Heritage Live concert in Saffron Walden in July, with support from the Fratellis and the Sandinistas, as well as co-headline shows with Refused in the US this month.

Mon 17 Dec 2012
It wouldn't be difficult for Swedish punk rockers The Hives to rule the world; they already have their self-proclaimed law that demands nothing but complete obedience. Elegantly dressed in top hats, tuxedos and tails and surrounded by six foot high stark white letters that spell HIVES, this could be Broadway or a night at the opera. It could be, except that the last unnerving Ninja roadie has scurried from the stage and the rather disturbing image of the demented puppeteer overlooking the audience, indicates a night ahead of masochistic pleasure in the form of total submission - to the masters.
