Scandi-garage act the Hives have announced a handful of live shows for the spring.
The dates come after new single ‘We Rule the World (T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S)’ gets a release on the 25th of February. That the track will be bolstered by remixes from Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Matt Helder (Arctic Monkeys) was reported back in December - you can still download Zinner’s mix, free, from here ‘til the 21st of January.
Those shows, then:
14 Norwich UEA
15 Newcastle Academy
16 Nottingham Rock City
17 Bristol Academy
18 London Brixton Academy
Tickets go on sale this Friday, 11th of January at 9am; priced at £17.50 ‘cept in London, where Ken Livingstone’s added another quid on top.
The band are also inviting you to send in your suggestions for the artwork to that new 10” – the winner’s will adorn the sleeve.
