Widely hailed as one of the best live acts in music and one of the last remaining members of the 2000's garage rock revival, The Hives are set to unleash their new album Lex Hives on the masses on June 5 for the United States.
Don't look now, but there may be a winner for the longest-lasting modern garage rock band, and it's a bit of a shock. Apparently, things made in Sweden just last longer. The Hives rode in on the same garage rock revival wave as the White Stripes, the Strokes and the Vines. However, unlike the other groups of the movement, the Hives never made the mistake of taking themselves too seriously.
