The Hives Announce First North American Performances In Three Years

It’s been a while since we heard from Swedish rockers The Hives. They’ve only played a handful shows since their 2013 tour in support of their album Lex Hives. Now, the band has confirmed three North American performances for 2019.

Next year, the band will play Pa’L Norte Festival in Monterrey, Mexico March 22 -23 and Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas May 24 – 27. They’ll also appear at the inaugural Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio May 17 – 19. This marks their first live performances since 2016’s Riot Fest set.

Last year, frontman Pelle Almqvist revealed during an interview with TeamRock that the band is working on a new album. “There’s awesome songs and I’d love for you to hear it, I think it’s some of the best stuff we’ve ever made, but we have to find out how to finish it and agree on it,” he said. Their last new song was 2015’s “Blood Red Moon.”

Hopefully, this means we can expect more from The Hives next year.
