It's been awhile since we heard from Swedish rockers The Hives (5 years to be exact since their last album, The Black & White Album). But the fearsome 5 return to announce their 5th studio record, Lex Hives, just in time for their upcoming Coachella show. Check out the first official single "Go Right Ahead" (courtesy of Rolling Stone) from the groups' upcoming album which has a similar sound to the group's previous hit single "Walk Idiot Walk" with its catchy riffs and synthy backdrops. The upcoming 12 cut album is set to drop on June 5th via The Hives' own label Disques Hives and is produced the band themselves, except for bonus tracks featured on the deluxe version of the album which are produced by none other than Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme. Sweet shit right?
The group has also featured a new song "Thousand Answers" in recent Electronic Arts video games FIFA 12 and SSX, which you can check out here as well. No word if the song is set to appear on the upcoming LP but it totally should because its awesome.
