The Hives' highly-anticipated new album Lex Hives is due out next week, and in celebration, the album is streaming in its entirety at The New Yorker as well as on the band's Facebook page.
Due out June 5 via the band's own Disques Hives, the album is receiving overwhelming worldwide acclaim. NME declares "Let it be said, Lex Hives is amazing," and Q Magazine's 4-star review asserts "Lex Hives fizzes with the energy of a debut album, the quintet emphatically back to what they do best." The Toronto Sun praises "a mighty half-hour of slashing guitars, crashing drums - and plenty of neo-Jagger swagger from Howlin' Pelle. Lex is more."
