The Hives have just announced a US Tour in support of Lex Hives, their new album. They're mostly west coast shows in September in places like Portland, Seattle and LA, but they'll also go to Vancouver and the midwest as well. "The term "Lex Hives" is a phrase derived from the ancient Roman practice of enacting a system or body of laws and accepting them as a standard. Thus, the 12 songs on Lex Hives makes up the holy laws after which all life from now on must be lived. Chiseled into the melted wax cake 33 1/3 long-player, Lex Hives will be released on The Hives' own label Disques Hives. Self-produced, self-played, self-released, and self-promoted, these 12 songs are not built to fit just anyone. These are not songs that sound equally good played on an acoustic guitar by the campfire. This is not music. This is compressed carbon hidden in the earth's crust for millions of years and unearthed, to be placed in your eardrums," reads the press release for the album.
