The Hives have shared two new singles from their forthcoming album ‘The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons’, which arrives next week.
They’re fast, they’re fiery and they pack a punch.
The new, double single release from The Hives gives us another indication of what’s in store for the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, which arrives next Friday, August 11.
Today’s new tunes follow the release of ‘Rigor Mortis Radio’, ‘Countdown To Shutdown’ and ‘Bogus Operandi’, all of which have amounted to considerable buzz around what will be the band’s first album in over a decade.
Have a listen to both new tunes below, starting with ‘Trapdoor Solution’…
And ‘The Bomb’…
As the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Lex Hives’, ‘The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons’ will also be celebrated with a number of UK tour dates taking place across March and April next year – tickets for which can be found via the band’s site.
The Hives are in fine form when it comes to playing live, having recently finished their support of Arctic Monkeys for their European and UK tour.
They also played out a stellar set at Glastonbury this year, cementing the impression they are well and truly back.
