About The Hives
The Hives are a Swedish garage rock band that rose to prominence in the early 2000s during the garage rock revival. Their mainstream success came with the release of the album Veni Vidi Vicious, containing the single Hate to Say I Told You So – it's to this day quoted as one of the most important releases of the era. The band is also well known as outstanding live performers, with Spin magazine placing them on the 8th place of their 25 Best Current Live Bands list from 2006 and also praising the frontman Pelle Almqvist. The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons is their first album after a decade-long break from releasing albums.
