The Hives have announced a North American tour that kicks off June 19 in Washington DC. The dates will follow the release of their highly-anticipated new album Lex Hives, due out June 5 via the band’s own Disques Hives label, and come in advance of an extensive U.S. headlining tour in the works for this Fall (details to come). The band also performed two new songs on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, including hit-single “Go Right Ahead” and “Wait A Minute.”

Tickets will go on sale to the general public, Friday, April 27 at 10:00am EDT via Ticketmaster.

The band made a return to the live stage with two explosive Coachella performances, which were widely regarded as a festival highlight. During the first weekend, Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist enticed the crowd of thousands to sit down during their last song, then rise back up en masse. However on the second weekend, he upped the ante by getting the entire crowd to lie down!

The Hives are Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Dr. Matt Destruction, and Vigilante Carlstroem.

6/19 – Washington, D.C. – 9:30 Club

The world’s wisest musical council and international rock sensation, The Hives are back! On June 5, Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Dr. Matt Destruction, and Vigilante Carlstroem will return with their fifth stunner – the 12-track contemplation of all law that is Hives – Lex Hives. 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. Blistering proof can be found with the lead single, “Go Right Ahead” streaming NOW at Lex Hives was produced by The Hives and mixed by Grammy Award winner Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele), with two additional tracks mixed by D. Sardy (Marilyn Manson, Slayer) and Joe Zook (Weezer, Modest Mouse). The deluxe version of Lex Hives will feature bonus tracks produced by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

After the 400 gigs and 25 nights in hospitals that followed the 2007 mind-blower The Black and White Album, The Hives are once again set to return to the world stages – beginning with an appearance at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (Weekend One: April 13-15/Weekend Two: April 20-22). On Monday, April 23rd the band will make their return live appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor stage (ABC 12am/11pm Central). In celebration of the world’s new favorite holiday, Record Store Day, the band will release the limited edition 7 inch single for “Go Right Ahead” that features the unreleased track “1000 Answers” on Saturday, April 21st.

Louder. Bolder. Prouder. More convinced than ever. The Hives are finally out of the dark ages and steering toward the light. This is THE LAW. The Law that is Hives. LEX HIVES! The laws of nature are pale in comparison and The Hives demand nothing but complete obedience.

Eagles of Death Metal are a cool straight-up rock band out of Indio, CA. Their lead singer Jesse Hughes is originally from South Carolina but he rocks like pure Americana (what the hell did I mean by that?) Anyways, Josh Homme (lead singer of Queens Of The Stone Age) plays drums for EODM except on some tours. Foo Fighters lead singer, Dave Grohl, is a big fan of the band and so is Jack Black. In fact, both appeared in EODM’s video for “I Want You So Hard (Boy’s Bad News). Eagles of Death Metal opened for Guns N Roses a few years ago and got kicked off the tour because Axl Rose decided that he didn’t like them anymore. Jesse sat down with Blip TV to talk about that, touring with The Hives and EODM’s new album. Check it out.
